Egg coffee

I was reading an old thread about coffee and wondered if anyone else ever makes egg coffee. I have not made it for a long time and wondered if I could make it in my drip coffee maker. For those of you that don't know you mix your grounds with a whole egg and brew your coffee. It gives you a very rich creamy coffee maybe on Sunday. Patty

RE: Egg coffee

My parents made "cowboy coffee" when they used the old granitware coffee pot and added egg shells to it which clarified the noxious brew. Then they got their first percolator and that was the end of the egg shells in coffee... But to answer your question, I ran across the link below and perhaps it will help you out with a how-to.

If you decide to try that, make sure that you measure the temperature. I am concerned that the egg will not be cooked to safe temperature in the coffee.


RE: Egg coffee

I agree with you about it might not be hot enough so will wait for next summer when camping I have a old coffee pot to put on the stove top. Thanks for the feed back. Patty

To pasteurize a raw egg: 140-degrees F and maintain the temperature for 3-1/2 minutes. -Grainlady

RE: Egg coffee

My mother always made a several urns of egg coffee when they entertained. It is delicious. So smooth and creamy.

I think she used to mix the egg with the grounds, bring the grounds to a boil in a pot of water, and then pour it through a filter.
