The process to make egg coffee is not very difficult, but not everyone can blend coffee, egg and milk to become a delicious and tasty and fragrant. The egg will be separated the yolk and scrambled really hard to remove the stinky smell of raw egg. The black coffee will be made by traditional way (using filter), then put some condensed milk into the cup of coffee and finally pour the egg onto it.
