Posted by Camille Sy on

One thing that we can all bond over is coffee, and one particularly is so unique and loved by the coffee and home community!

Try making this amazingly simple and easy recipe, and you'll become an instant coffee professional right from your home.

And ofcourse The Vietnamese have been enjoying it for ages! It’s called Vietnamese Egg Coffee (Cà Phê Trung). We’ll show you how to make this rich, decadent treat that’s both easy and wonderfully delicious.

The egg cream on top of the coffee was rich and silky, but not overly sweet. The Vietnamese espresso underneath was strong enough to keep you up for days, but perfectly offset by the creamy sweet foam on top. Yes, this is definitely dessert coffee.




  1. Gather all your ingredients and brew 12 ounces of strong espresso style coffee. This is enough for 2 servings
  2. Add the egg yolk and sweetened condensed milk to a pitcher and whip with a hand blender.
  3. Continue whipping until you have soft peaks and the volume will more than double. 
  4. Add the espresso to the 2 cups of coffee and then spoon on the whipped egg mixture over the top. Enjoy!
