Coffee recipe: The coffee recipe with egg

I found a recipe for a really unusual coffee that had a lot of positive feedback. If like me, you have some culinary curiosity, I think you’ll want to try.

Normally, this coffee is prepared in Vietnam using a phin: a stainless steel accessory consisting of three parts: a kind of filter, a container and a lid. This recipe therefore requires a gentle and slow extraction method.

Roaster coffee VS supermarket coffee

Making good coffees is expensive. You may have had to ask yourself, too, “Why buy coffee beans from a coffee roaster while there are some in supermarkets?” This is a question I will try to answer in my article.

How is coffee decaffeinated?

I often asked myself this question: how is decaf coffee? After doing my research, I started to ask other questions: is decaffeinated coffee toxic? What is the environmental impact of decaffeination processes? If like me you like to take a decaf from time to time, I think knowing the processes used will interest you.

The following study showed that decaffeinated beverages still retain 1 – 2% (and sometimes even 20%) of the original caffeine content.

The Kopi Luwak: its history, its rarity and its lack of ethics

Produced in Indonesia, the Kopi Luwak is one of the most expensive and rarest cafes in the world. The origin of its rarity comes from the fact that in this part of the world, the fruits of coffee are eaten by a small mammal: the Asian civet. The Civet digests only the pulp of the fruit leaving the coffee bean intact. The coffee beans ferment in the belly of the animal. The acids and enzymes of the stomach act to ultimately produce a particular beverage. This one is described as smooth, chocolate and devoid of any bitter aftertaste.

Towards the end of the XVIe century, stories (more and more frequent) of travelers and botanists on this new plant reach Europe from the Middle East. European merchants are starting to take an interest in this commodity. Already trading with the Middle East, the Venetians succeed in the early 1600s to bring the first bags of green coffee, though jealously guarded from Mecca.

Ecology Coffee: Opening a series of articles

I decided to open a series of articles that will talk about some environmental problems that are associated with the misuse of coffee. You will discover that trivial practices of everyday life can have a much more serious impact than we think. The subjects will not necessarily talk about coffee as such. For example, we will find topics on cardboard cups that take up to 150 years to decompose, capsules…
