The coffee Question
[Return to Topics]

If none of you folks have tried Swedish egg
coffee you don't know what your missing.

Use whatever coffee grounds you prefer and
whatever amount you prefer, mix an egg into
the grounds. Using an old stovetop type coffee
pot - fill with water as cold as you can get it (
leaving room for the grounds and an
additional cup of water ) pour in your grounds
and bring it to a good boil. When the coffee
boils dump in an addition cup of ice cold water
,let it heat just enough to warm back up but not

Sooooo, do you put the grounds and egg in a percolator basket or directly into the water? Is the egg strained out or do you actually consume the egg along with the coffee??

mix the egg and grounds together and they go
right in the water. The cup of ice cold water at
the end settles the grounds to the bottom.

Most cheepo brewers aren't hot enough to brew coffee really good coffee. Water should be at least 190 degrees or hoter.

A dash of cinnamon on top of the grounds can really help "gentle" cheap or bitter coffee also.

Hi Mark...we call that Norse coffee....I wonder why??...always put a dash of salt in the coffee too, seems to bring out the flavour...have a good one, R.E.L.

A dash of red pepper flakes in the brew can wake you up quicker also. Boiled coffee/egg in large pot was common growing up in Iowa- new years parties had dansk and norskis drinking coffee with up extra shot of booze in at midnight.
