Vietnamese Traditional Recipe - CÀ PHÊ TRUNG (VIETNAMESE EGG COFFEE)

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)

½ cup boiling water

3 tbsp condensed milk

1 tbsp sugar

2 egg yolks


Make Vietnamese coffee with a phin placed over each coffee cup. Let drip 4 – 5 minutes. (The phin is a single-serving coffee filter that sits on top of a cup. You can purchase the phin on Amazon.)

In a small bowl, beat eggs with sugar till soft peaks form.

Fold in condensed milk carefully, to preserve the egg-sugar foam.

With coffee in the bottom of the cup, spoon the egg mixture carefully over the coffee.

Dust with cocoa powder or cinnamon if desired.
