Making Egg Coffee by Percolator
- 1 Percolator
- 1 Mug
- 1 Spoon
- 3/4 Cup Coffee Beans
- 9 1/4 Cup Filter Water
- 1 Pcs Egg
- Condensed Milk Optional
- Grind the coffee beans: Start by measuring out the desired amount of coffee beans and grind them to a medium-coarse consistency. This is the perfect grind size for making coffee in a percolator.
- Crack and separate the egg: Gently crack the egg into a separate bowl and separate the yolk from the white. You will only need the yolk for this recipe.
- Whisk the egg yolk together: Whisk the egg yolk together with sweetened condensed milk (if using), until it’s smooth and creamy.
- Add the ground coffee to the percolator: Take the percolator and add the ground coffee to the coffee basket.
- Add the water to the percolator: Measure out the desired amount of water and pour it into the percolator. Make sure the water level is below the level of the coffee grounds in the basket.
- Place the percolator on the stove: Put the percolator on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.
- Bring the water to a boil: Wait for the water to reach a boil, this should take around 5-7 minutes. Once the water reaches a boil, the coffee will begin to percolate through the grounds and into the pot.
- Slowly pour the egg mixture into the percolator: Once the water reaches a boil, slowly pour the egg mixture into the percolator. Avoid pouring the egg mixture directly onto the coffee grounds as this can cause the egg to clump together. Instead, pour the egg mixture into the water and let it mix with the coffee naturally.
- Allow the coffee to brew for a few minutes: Allow the coffee to brew for a few minutes, depending on your preference. Once the brewing process is complete, the coffee will be ready to serve. Remember that the egg yolk will float to the top, so you may want to stir it before serving.
A. Remove the percolator from the stove: Carefully remove the percolator from the stove and place it on a heat-resistant surface.
B. Stir in sweetened condensed milk (if desired): If you haven’t added sweetened condensed milk to the egg yolk mixture earlier, you can stir it in now. If you prefer your coffee less sweet, you can add less or skip it altogether.
C. Pour the coffee into a cup: Slowly pour the coffee into a cup, making sure to leave the egg yolk floating on the top.
D. Enjoy your egg coffee: Take a sip and enjoy the creamy and rich taste of your homemade egg coffee. You can garnish it with a sprinkle of cinnamon or cocoa powder.
Recap of the process: To make egg coffee in a percolator, you’ll need coffee beans, water, an egg, and sweetened condensed milk (optional). Start by grinding the coffee beans, whisking together the egg yolk and sweetened condensed milk, adding the ground coffee and water to the percolator, bringing the water to a boil and slowly pouring the egg mixture into the percolator. Allow the coffee to brew for a few minutes and then remove the percolator from the stove, pour the coffee into a cup, and enjoy your delicious homemade egg coffee.
