As many of us are social distancing, we are always on the lookout for new ways to enjoy and spice up our daily constant.
One global trend that has been making waves on Instagram and Tiktok is the new Dalgona Coffee. Made up of only 3 ingredients on your cupboard, whisk it up and you’re good to go.
Since some of our favorite coffee shops have come to a temporary close, we could only make our own version of our favorite, and Dalgona Coffee is defo a perf alternative.
WHERE DID IT COME FROM?
Dalgona Coffee has a lot of origins. According to research, it has origins from Macau, India, and Pakistan where it is known as the whipped coffee.
However, it surged in popularity when it appeared in the TV show Pyunstorang. Actor Jung Il-Woo went to Macau where he happened to try the drink and named it Dalgona.
HOW DO YOU MAKE IT?
Prepare your ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons of instant coffee (better if the ‘classic’ one)
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 500ml fresh milk
- with 2tbsp hot water
Whisk the instant coffee, hot water, and sugar together. Usually it would take 400 times or at least 10 minutes of whisking to make it really frothy.
Pour the fresh milk on a glass and top with the frothed coffee.

WHAT ARE THE OTHER WAYS TO MAKE IT?
Apart from coffee, you can also use Milo as the froth. But if you’re going to use Milo, better to use it with whip cream or pasteurized egg.
Also, you can use milk as the whip and have coffee or milo as the base. Be creative.
