Nespresso Citrus Egg Coffee by J'Something

Recipe for Citrus Egg Coffee


Serves 1


Nothing feels more like summer to me than citrus. What I love about this Nespresso Master Origin Ethiopia coffee is the subtle citrus notes that it carries and I wanted to make sure that the citrus taste is carried through in this recipe. Inspired by a coffee drink we used to have often as a family that used condensed milk, I wanted to expand on that taste and I believe I created a masterpiece. It’s a unique dual experience of an almost cold orange custard that floats on top of the cup, mixed with the beautiful espresso shot and a simple orange syrup. Out of all the recipes I created for the Nespresso Master Origin range, this has to be my favourite.


What you Need

1 capsule, Nespresso Master Origin Ethiopia brewed as a lungo

20ml freshly squeezed orange juice

50ml sugar

50ml water

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoons condensed milk


What to Do


1. Put sugar, water and orange juice into a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

2. Reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes until a syrup forms. Remove from heat.

3. Brew the coffee.

4. Put the egg yolk and 2 teaspoons of the condensed milk into a small deep bowl and whisk together until frothy.

5. Add a tablespoon of the brewed coffee and whisk it into the mixture.

6. Pour the remaining brewed coffee into a lungo coffee mug, add a teaspoon of orange syrup and stir.

7. Add the frothy egg mixture on top and serve.
