How to make Vietnamese Egg Drop Coffee (ca-phe-trung)

How I learned about Vietnamese Egg Drop Coffee:

I first tried Vietnamese Egg Drop Coffee last year while walking around Vietnam. I was about to order my usual Vietnamese iced coffee but something caught my eye. Egg Drop Coffee was listed in the menu so I decided to order that instead. It tasted great, cozy and heartwarming. Despite having a raw egg in the coffee it doesn’t taste fishy at all.

Egg Drop Coffee and Cafe

Ever since then I have been wanting to get a taste of Vietnamese egg drop coffee that is why I tried making one at home. It look different from what I had in Vietnam.

It is fairly easy to make and still taste almost but not nearly the same. The coffee shop is still more superior of course. I learned about the procedure by watching this video:

Trying to make my own Vietnamese Egg Drop Coffee:

Egg Drop Coffee Ingredients

Coffee, Condensed Milk, and Egg Mixture

3 Easy Egg Drop Coffee Ingredients:

  • 1 serving of Vietnamese Coffee / Espresso
  • 1 to 2 Egg Yolk ( I only used 1 but 2 is recommended)
  • 2 to 3 Spoons of Condensed Milk

Pouring Egg Cream in Coffee

How I made it:

  1. Make Vietnamese Coffee or Espresso.
  2. Whisk Condensed Milk and Egg Yolks until fluffy using an electric whisk is most recommended.
  3. Pour the egg and condensed milk mixture over the coffee.

Final Thoughts:

  • I’d make make it with 2 egg yolks next time.
  • Add more Condensed Milk.
  • Make Coffee at the end so coffee would remain fresh and hot.
  • Add Cocoa Powder for nice effects.

It’s really a good coffee to make if you want the mix of really strong coffee with a sweet and foamy texture. Honestly this coffee makes me feel warm inside that’s the reason I tried recreating it for myself.
