Story Time

I probably made dalgona coffee five days in a row and told everybody about when I first found out it existed. It’s just sooo good, and especially in the summer. It’s cold and refreshing, it’s fun, very beautiful to look at and taste well. It’s also such a good coffee to give your friends when they come over. Instead of the normal black coffee and cake (not that, that ever sucks), you can just give them a dalgona coffee.

There are different ways of making it, depending on if you want it to be cold or hot. And don’t worry. I will explain both ways for you.


The coffee is originally from South Korea and named after Korean toffee. It all started as a Tik Tok trend and has now exploded all over the internet. It normally consists of ice-cold milk and a wiped coffee foam. But you can also make it with warm milk. It’s a rich, foamy and smooth coffee and super easy to make with few ingredients.

I’m not gonna make the typically step by step, with this coffee, since the recipe is that easy. It may look a bit hard to achieve that foam, but you cannot mess this up. I promise you. It’s idiot-proof.

For the cold version of Dalgona coffee:

(For the hot version, simply just replace the cold milk with warm milk. Just heat it in the microwave or on the stove.)


(3-4 minutes of your time)

So are you ready to make the foam that makes you drool just looking at it?

Then grab your mixer or a whisk if you're hardcore and wanna do a workout.

Step one: MIX

Grab a bowl and add instant coffee, hot water water, and sugar. beat the Sh** out of it for about 2-3 minutes. It needs to be so stiff that you can turn the bowl around and nothing falls out.


Now grab a glass with your milk and ice cubes and pour over the delicious coffee foam.

If you want it to look more delicious when you serve it, you can add some syrup to the mix or drizzle it with cocoa powder.

And there you have it. 

A delicious coffee recipe that takes no more than three ingredients that you normally have in your kitchen. Who knew that instant coffee could be that delicious? Not me. For me, instant coffee is only reserved for camping or in my hotel room when the hotels coffee sucks.
