Traditional Swedish Egg Coffee Recipe

According to legend, this unique way of brewing coffee originated en route from Sweden to America in the late 1800s.

It has become a long tradition for Lutheran church gatherings of Scandinavian-Americans in the Midwest, dubbed “church basement coffee” for the large quantity it usually makes. Before brewing the coffee, a raw egg is added to the grounds, creating a potting soil-like mixture. Some diehard egg coffee lovers use the crushed eggshell as well, but it’s optional.
