While we’re home there’s a lot of things we can learn and fro that which we know we can improve. This includes coffee. If you’re tired of making it the same old way, Try out Dalgona coffee.
Otherwise known as whipped coffee or cloud coffee, Dalgona is the latest social media craze. There are thousands of TikToks, tweet vids and Instagram stories showing people making the drink make it clear why.
What Is Dalgona Coffee?
Unlike regular coffee or even a latte, dalgona coffee stands out because of its frothy top. It is made by whipping instant coffee with sugar and water. This then results in a visually appealing fluffy light brown foam that is then spooned over milk.
The trend apparently started earlier this year when South Korean actor Jung Il-woo made it on TV.
On TikTok and YouTube, tutorials for the drink have since been viewed millions of times. If you search for it on Instagram, it will give more than 260,000 results and counting.

How To Make Cloud Coffee
The first attempt might not be as easy as it looks but you have to keep trying until you get it.
- Have 4tbsp of instant coffee or espresso powder/ 2 sachets of instant coffee
- 3-4 tbsp of sugar
- 3-4 tbsp of water
- 400ml milk
Add the instant coffee, sugar and water to a mixing bowl. Using an electric hand-held mixer, fork or egg beater (whisk) and whip the coffee mixture until it is light brown, fluffy and holds stiff peaks when the whisk is removed.
Heat the milk, if desired, or use cold milk and divide between two heatproof glasses. Spoon amounts of the frothed coffee mixture on top and smooth out with a spoon. Serve with whatever else you think will work.
