Today is Easter Sunday. What did you do to prepare for celebrating Easter? Let’s see what coffee lovers do for Easter.
Crack An Egg into Coffee
According to the restaurant critic Joy Summers’ lovely Easter essay, this combination of coffee and eggs is a Minnesota culinary tradition, invented by Scandinavian immigrants. Summers grew up drinking egg coffee prepared by her grandmother, whose method was beating an egg, mixing it into dry coffee grounds, boiling the mixture in a stove-top coffee post, letting it steep, pouring into a cup of cold water, letting it settle, and serving. When describing the taste, Summer said, “the texture in the mouth was luscious, giving the coffee a round richness”.
This is my first time hearing about egg coffee. After I read Summers’ description, I made myself a cup of egg coffee. Although it was better than I imagined before, I couldn’t get used to this new and special taste. If you are curious about this taste, I recommend to make a cup of egg coffee to yourself.
