Egg + Coffee

Eggs and coffee make the perfect pairing for breakfast.  Well ok I don’t really eat eggs anymore but I wanted to try this recipe out because it sounded so interesting.  The recipe is Norwegian egg coffee.  I used this recipe :How-to-Make-Norwegian-Egg-Coffee-Cleo-Coyle

Start by boiling 8 cups of water.  Then grind your coffee and beat the egg in a bowl.

Then mix your coffee grounds with the egg and 1/4 cup of water.

Pour this egg mixture into the boiling water and stir.  

Allow to boil for 3 minutes without stirring. As the egg cooks, the coffee grinds will start clumping up. After 3 minutes, remove from heat and let stand for 2 minutes. The picture on the left is taken right after 3 minutes, and the one on the right is after sitting for 2 minutes.

Strain the coffee through a fins sieve. 

The coffee will take a nice amber color.  The taste is lighter and not strong. Almost watery.  I used medium roast on a medium grind for this coffee.
