Dalgona coffee is a Korean beverage that is preparing whipping instant coffee powder, sugar, and hot water. It can garnish by adding cocoa or coffee powder or small chocolate chips as a topping. This is a good sweet-tasting milky coffee beverage with whipped coffee for the evening. In this dalgona coffee recipe, you can use fresh milk or condensed milk with instant coffee or brewed coffee.

We can make it without sugar, so you can substitute honey bee or erythritol based sweeteners. This beverage popular in Korea during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown situation. This is a new recipe to the world. While many people use either electric beater, manual hand beater, or milk frother to prepare the whipped dalgona coffee. The electric mixture or whisker is recommended to use, it can make this process easier. We have to mix this dalgona coffee foam until it becomes meringue-like. In another word, it’s super soft, thicker, and glossy.
