Dalgona coffee—it started as a Tik Tok trend and has now exploded all over the internet as the It-Drink of the moment.
Try this trendy and delicious coffee recipe from Korea.
Essentially, dalgona coffee is whipped coffee. It is made with 4 simple ingredients – instant coffee, sugar, hot water and milk.
Coffee, sugar and hot water is added into a bowl and whisked until it reaches creamy, velvety and stiff peak status. This whipped coffee is then dolloped onto your choice of cold or warm milk. Done!
You can make this. It’ll go by faster if you have a hand mixer, but a humble regular whisk, one powerful arm, and a good dose of patience and endurance will get you there too—just make sure you’re ready with a nice tall glass of cold, creamy coffee that’s sweetened just right.
Depending on how much of a caffeine rush you want, this recipe makes enough dalgona fluff for one or two servings. It’s delicious but very strong: drink at your own discretion!

- Fill a glass most of the way full with ice and milk, then dollop and swirl the whipped coffee mixture on top, mixing before drinking, if desired.
