What is Dalgona Coffee?

Have you seen this new coffee trend? Keep reading to learn all about it

What is Dalgona Coffee

You may have heard of Dalgona Coffee, or whipped coffee. This coffee drink, though no where near new, has suddenly become an internet obsession. And how could it not when it looks as fluffy and delicious as it does. This stuff makes your morning coffee feel like a caffeinated marshmallow. What could be better?

As far as what Dalgona Coffee is, it’s simply a whipped-up version of typical coffee served over warm or cold milk. The coffee is relatively easy to make, too, especially for something that looks made by a barista. You don’t have to head to the café for fancy coffee anymore. You can make that Instagram-worthy drink in your own kitchen.

Where is Dalgona Coffee From?

Where is Dalgona Coffee from?

There is a lot of confusion over how this craze started and where Dolgona coffee was first made. Most people accept that it stems from both South Korean and Indian influences. The name “dalgona” itself references a Korean toffee candy.

The whipped portion of the drink is made with instant coffee, hot water, and sugar and then is served over milk or cream. Outside of Western culture, this drink has been popular for years so tracing it back to a single origin isn’t really possible.

A similar coffee in India is known as phenti hui coffee. Many people believe this to be the “original” Dalgona coffee. The drink has become popular in the United States and Europe mainly due to a viral TikTok video. Since the video was posted, many celebrities have tried making their own which boosted the drink’s rise in popularity.

How to Make Dalgona Coffee

How to Make Dalgona Coffee

To make Dalgona coffee the traditional way, you’re going to need a whisk and some strong arm muscles. You’ll need to whisk the instant coffee, sugar, and water together until they form a thick cream with stiff peaks. Technically, you could do this with an electric mixer and your coffee should turn out fine, but many people insist the best results come from hand whipping your coffee.

Remember, Dalgona coffee cannot be made with typical coffee grounds. You must use instant coffee or the pillow-y magic won’t happen!
