How to make Dalgona coffee at home
To make Dalgona coffee you only need:
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee or instant espresso
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon water
- Milk (dairy or dairy works equally well here)
Add the instant coffee, sugar and water to a bowl and beat vigorously. (or use an immersion blender if you have one to make it a much easier process) until the mixture becomes super thick – it should have a similar consistency to whipped cream with slightly stiff peaks – and get a subtle twist golden brown color.
Pour milk into a glass filled with ice cubes, then scoop the soft mixture on the cold milk or mix the two parts together if you are looking for a latte situation.
You can also dress it up with variations, like mint in the milk layer, or dalgona coffee foam over another drink – such asor cold chocolate – even sprinkles. It's a fun, airy drink, so have fun with it.
