how to make vietnamese egg coffee instructions

Cà Phê Trung (Vietnamese Egg Coffee)

5 from 1 reviews


Here’s how to make a delicious, authentic, Vietnamese egg coffee. You’ll have a hard time going back to regular coffee once you try this.


  • 2 tbsp Vietnamese coffee (if that’s not possible, dark-roast coffee is your next best bet)
  • 3 cups hot water (90 – 96 °C)
  • 13 tbsp condensed milk (it’s a little too sweet for me; I just use one)
  • 1 tbsp sugar (vanilla sugar if available)
  • 2 egg yolks


  1. Make Vietnamese coffee with a phin placed over each coffee cup. Let drip 4 – 5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, beat eggs with sugar till soft peaks form.
  3. Fold in condensed milk carefully, to preserve the egg-sugar foam.
  4. With coffee in the bottom of the cup, spoon the egg mixture carefully over the coffee.
  5. Dust with cocoa powder or cinnamon if desired.
