Kitchen Table Kibitzing Friday – egg coffee(s)

I found this tweet on egg coffee.

But also, I wanted to include the Daily Kos “new front page”. The new front page reminds us of Ferengi Rules of acquisition #33 It never hurts to suck up to the boss because it could be an example of online quantum supremacy. It looks fine, even if it’s probably meant for smaller screens. And it doesn’t remind me of Huffington Post, at all. Probably looks better with ads. I need more coffee.

So there’s this recipe on egg coffee, I found it again, reminded as I was of Chrislove’s egg mayo, and also because I stupidly broke my manual espresso maker (it is fixed again), and even if it cost much $, I managed to randomly figure out that by substituting the basket filter trashed from a Krups, and used in the new basket, produces even better crema. Darn that arbitrary standardization.

Fortunately I don’t need to make big bunches of coffee to save for a week of work commuting. And if anything discovering the power of emulsifying albumen reminds us of how little/much progress we’ve made since the Renaissance.

I used to be the first person into work and at 8am wanted to encourage cooperation by buying a box of donuts and making a pot of coffee. Thank Jeebus I don’t have to do that again, or even enter Dunkin Donuts.

I am enjoying this delicious masterpiece as we speak, sitting out in the early morning garden, listening to nice birds try to keep the nasty nest-attacking birds away.

So stick with me as we explore the wonders of Swedish Egg Coffee.

Yes. Egg coffee. /2

Swedish/Vietnamese egg coffees sort of globalized.

Adding the egg helps clarify the coffee, allowing the grounds to separate from the water easily. The egg white extracts the bitterness from the grounds, as well as enhancing the caffeine. The result is a light, clear brew with absolutely no bitterness or acidity and a velvety texture that's easy to drink.
