    For all the Swedes saying this isn't a Swedish way of making coffee, you are wrong. This method was very common at the time when Swedes migrated from Sweden to America. It was the main way of making coffee for large groups and was heavily associated with the church. The method has had a big decline in Sweden to the point where it is quite rare. The coffee brewing machines were the thing that really made it obsolete, that and the fact that most people stopped going to church. The Swedish immigrants in the US have been keeping the tradition alive, and it is still heavily associated with the church there.

    Swedes don't do this is Sweden, they started doing it in America because they're trying to imitate the higher quality coffee you get in Sweden. A pinch of salt to the egg/coffee mix helps too.

    Right after college, I rented a room from a little old lady that made coffee like this every morning. Best ever.

    My Dad said his grandma made this (she was 100% Finnish – he only ever heard her speak English once) and he said it was the best coffee he ever had. She had a wood burning kitchen stove. She would put a pot of water to boil and scoop coffee grounds from a clean tin (once used for tuna) into the boiling water and put the eggs shell and all into the coffee, when it was done she ladled the coffee out into cups. I love hearing the stories my Dad tells. Thanks for sharing.

    My Grandfather did this. His family was Norwegian and he explained it also got rid of bitterness. I told my Mom about this and she thought he was nuts…Just goes to show.

    My parents used to put egg SHELLS in the coffee basket as it was brewing which was supposed to make the coffee more smooth. And yes, they're Midwestern/Scandinavian. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Emmymadeinjapan: Have you ever tried cowboy coffee. Watch a video called "Cowboy coffee" by cowboy kent rollins if you haven't. I make all of my coffee the way he does and it is great coffee!

    Hey Emmy!
    I was wondering if youโ€™ve heard of Indian Cappuccino- itโ€™s hand beaten (sometimes a hand mixer is used) to cream together instant coffee and sugar with a little water to make almost like a buttercream like coffee mass which is added to milk. Itโ€™s delicious and something interesting to try!

    You need to try a bulletproof coffee, it's delicious made with butter or ghee and MCT oil sounds yucky but it's amazing and gives you not only a little get up and go but added mental clarity. It's mostly used on rhe keto diet but it's great for anyone IMO.

    So I get about the egg whites breaking down blah blah. But then what role does the yolk have? And also the shells? Inquiring minds you know…. Lol ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Well, that was an absolutely fascinating watch! I admit, watching the coffee brew was a little off-putting and "eww?"-inducing, but your reaction to the final, finished product has piqued my intrigue; you've always been genuine, so I completely trust your review of it and actually want to try this! ๐Ÿ˜ We have several different plants we're growing for food, so this got me thinking about using the leftover sediment as fertilizer. After reading a number of the comments, I see I was far from the only one with this thought. I see roses mentioned left, right and center, but how about for (this is what we're growing):

    Jalapeรฑo: Fruiting like MAD, and that plant is MAYBE a foot tall?! Harvested one, there's TEN on that thing right now! From TINY bud to three nearly ripe! O.O And my god, I had NO IDEA how hot a fresh pepper was until I tried just a SLIVER of it! ๐Ÿ˜‚ That little sliver LIT. ME. UP!
    Bellpepper: JUST NOW getting flower buds! 8D I was beginning to think it wasn't old enough to do anything, yet; it hadn't for a while, and it was making us wonder.
    Tomato x2: Oddly, the bigger plant isn't fruiting well [ONE tomato growing slow as hell], but the smaller one has three 'maters on it, AND we've already got three offa it! Palm size, but still tasty!
    Parsley: JUST went out and majorly pruned it [shoulda done it sooner, but I was afraid I'd end up killing it, somehow ๐Ÿ˜†], got nine sprouts re-planted. Never grown herbs before, so this one's kind of a crash course for us in what NOT to do. Grew like MAD the first time, though, so I fully trust it to bounce back! ๐Ÿ˜ If I can keep reminding mom not to over-water it, that is. ๐Ÿ˜„ She did that with the cilantro (I kept telling her…!), and now we don't have it! ๐Ÿ˜† Bless her, though, she tries. ^^ Though granted, I also think the roots were too crowded on each other; we planted it as-is after getting the starter sprout from Kroger and didn't spread it out when we re-potted it. Still grew like a wildfire though; you shoulda SEEN how tall they got! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ We weren't expecting that! I ended up just cutting off stalks to chew on (two or three at a time, even! Trust me, I didn't even DING the amount of foliage!), and man, does that taste good. O___O Seriously. I never knew how GOOD fresh parsley tasted 'til we got it!

    Right now, it's all potted in Miracle-Gro soil. Any input from anybody on best, easy-to-do fertilizer options would be appreciated! ^^ We're not exactly green-thumbs, but so far, there's only been one casualty! ๐Ÿ˜†

    I have had coffee that was boiled before (camp voffee or cowboy coffee), and it was really smooth and great tasting, but it was made without the use of an egg. I have also seen others use the cold water to make the grounds sink to the bottom (Cowboy Kent Rollins sho is also on Youtube). It would be interesting to compare both (with and without sgg) . Another fine video.

    Why not just use the French Press to separate the sediment, rather than adding cold water?
