Whipped coffee, AKA “Dalgona” coffee has quickly taken over the internet, and it’s easy to see why. While everyone is staying home, many people have turned to the internet for new ways to create their favorite coffee drinks! Those of you that are used to going out for coffee or stopping at a drive-thru, might want to give this a try. This trend originally started in South Korea, where it was called “Dalgona coffee” after a Korean toffee candy by the same name. It is easy to make and uses only 3 ingredients!Jump to Recipe
What Does it Taste Like?
We had seen so many pictures and videos of this coffee drink pop up online, we just had to try it. Does it really taste as good as it looks? Well, this is slightly debatable. The frothy topping looks like it should taste as sweet as caramel, but it’s not quite what you’d expect. We found it to have a very strong coffee flavor, but it wasn’t quite sweet enough, or was it too sweet? We experimented by mixing it in with the milk, adding flavored syrup and increasing the sugar to coffee ratio. It’s such a fun process and makes a really pretty looking drink, so I think it’s worth perfecting! Play around with it until you achieve the desired level of sweetness and strength.

How to Make it
All you need are three ingredients: Instant coffee, sugar and water. Mix equal parts coffee, sugar and water in a bowl and whisk until you create thick, fluffy peaks. Whisking by hand might be tiring and take up to 10 minutes. We put our mixture in our Kitchenaid mixer and ran it for about 2 minutes. It transformed like magic in a matter of seconds!
We put ice cubes in a glass and poured cold milk on top. We spooned our coffee mixture on top and stirred it in. We added flavored syrup for extra sweetness.
