Dalgona coffee, which originated as a TikTok trend, has now become a popular choice at coffee shops and restaurants across America. The question remains: is it worth all the hype? The only way to know for sure is to try it yourself.

All you need to make this trendy drink is instant coffee, sugar, and water. While using a hand mixer can speed up the process, a regular whisk, along with a strong arm and a bit of patience, can achieve the same result. Be prepared for a bit of a workout, as whisking the mixture until it becomes thick and creamy can be a bit strenuous. However, the end result is a tall glass of cold, creamy coffee with just the right amount of sweetness. Depending on your preference for caffeine, this recipe yields enough Dalgona foam for one or two servings. It's delicious but quite potent, so consume it with caution!

1 to 2 servings


5 minutes


10 minutes




2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons instant coffee

2 tablespoons cold water

Ice, for serving

Milk, for serving


In a medium bowl, combine sugar, coffee, and water. Use a hand mixer or a whisk to vigorously whisk the mixture until it turns silky smooth and shiny. Continue whisking until it thickens and holds its lofty, foamy shape. If whisking by hand, it will take 8 to 12 minutes to reach optimal fluffiness.

Fill a glass mostly full with ice and milk. Dollop and swirl the whipped coffee mixture on top, mixing before drinking if desired.
