Dalgona Coffee Recipe

Just a little while ago, not many of us had heard about dalgona coffee. In the beginning of 2020, this dalgona recipe started to go viral on social media in South Korea, especially on TikTok. 

It didn’t take long until the rest of the world noticed this fabulous looking drink. We’ve tried it ourselves, and we absolutely love it, which is why we want to share our recipe with you!

Dalgona Coffee Variations

We like to experiment, which is why we tried making some variations to this delicious drink. My personal favorite is the vanilla dalgona coffee, but my wife preferred the caramel dalgona coffee

Then there’s also the chocolate dalgona, which is perfect for a chilly or rainy day.

Tips for a Perfect Whipped Coffee

  • Serving this drink in a transparent glass exposes the two layers and will make you feel like a true barista!
  • If you’re sensitive to caffeine, it’s also fine to use decaf. You won’t notice any difference in taste.
  • You can store the whipped coffee in the fridge for a couple of hours before using it.
  • This drink can be served either hot or cold.

Dalgona Coffee Ingredients

This dalgona whipped coffee recipe contains only a few simple ingredients. You’ll find the ingredients for one cup of coffee below, and note that the amount of milk you’ll need depends on the size of your mug. 

  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons hot water
  • Milk of choice

How to make Dalgona Coffee

Grab a high bowl to mix the ingredients in, because we don’t want your kitchen to become a mess! 

Place the instant coffee, brown sugar, and water in the bowl and mix with an electric hand mixer for about 4-5 minutes until the mixture becomes foamlike. We strongly advise using a mixer, because whisking by hand will take twice as long! 

Next, fill a mug with milk of your choice and place the whipped dalgona coffee on top. We’ve used semi-skimmed milk. You can either use hot or cold milk; that’s up to you!

Enjoy your drink!
