The Victor crew has heard of a lot of things but this is the first time we heard of Egg Coffee. Turns out it’s a thing. It originated in Scandinavia and to this day out west, the Scandinavian-Americans still make it. Here is their method:
9 cups water to boil plus another 1 1/4 cups cold water separated
3/4 cup medium to coarse ground coffee
Bring the 9 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan or enamel coffee pot. While that is boiling, stir togeter ground coffee, 1/4 cup water and the egg. You can even use the crushed shell if you want. When the water is boiling, pour in the egg-coffee mixture being careful not to let it boil over. Boil for 3 minutes. The grounds will float in a single mass. After the 3 minutes, remove from heat and pour in 1 cup cold water. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Pour through a fine-mesh into cups. (10 cups coffee.)
Hmm… Maybe we’ll have to try this!
