We hope you are staying safe and doing well in the meantime!

So what better way to spend your lockdown than to do something creative and fun to pass time? If you have been seeing your friends making the dalgona coffee, ‘whisking’ their hands off during the first MCO but have not tried it yourself, this is the best time to try!

Fun fact: Dalgona was originated from a casual word in Korea “dalguna” which essentially means “sweet”, also a popular street snack sold in Korea that tastes like honeycomb toffee which consist of mainly just sugar and baking soda.

In this article, you will learn how to make the perfect dalgona coffee 😎 with some important tips so you don’t end up with sore arms the next day or failed attempts 😉 let’s go!

What you need:

  1. Pure instant coffee powder (tip: not 3 in 1)
  2. Sugar (tip: preferably fine or brown sugar so it dissolves easier. Sugar is also a crucial ingredient that affects the texture and consistency of the dalgona)
  3. Hot water (tip: make sure it is hot enough to melt the coffee & sugar)
  4. Milk of choice
  5. Whisk/fork/spoon to whisk (tip: use electrical whisk if you are lazy)
