  2. Combine condensed milk, espresso powder and vanilla in a large bowl. Add coconut and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Beat egg whites and salt until very stiff peaks form, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Gently fold egg whites into coconut mixture.
  4. Dip 2 spoons into water, shake them off and form mixture into balls slightly smaller than a golf ball. Do not compact mixture. Place on baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely.
