You may have heard some buzz about this coffee… it’s known as Dalgona Coffee, Tik Tok Coffee, Korean Coffee… I’m going to tell you all about it.
This whipped coffee can be made into an iced latte or a hot latte.
In just a couple minutes you’ll be enjoying sipping on this decadent coffee and wonder where it’s been all your life.
It’s fun to see someone become so popular on social media and it brings a new item to the forefront in minutes.
You may have even heard this called quarantine coffee. I read up a little bit about Dalgona coffee, it’s known very well in South Korea, and I that in Korea they have an abundance of coffee shops about 49,000… that is a lot of coffee shops, drinking coffee must be like an experience… they go to coffee shops to hand out, socialize. Since things are locked down they are making their own coffee at home since everyone is staying closer to home these days, it’s no wonder a homemade whipped coffee is sweeping the internet beyond Korea.
It’s sweet and silky and fun to make and easy to enjoy.
With just 3 simple ingredients anyone can whip it up!
Do I need some special equipment to make this coffee?
No, it’s pretty straight forward, you need to whip instant coffee with sugar and hot water.
Whipping air into the mixture until it’s very thick, then pour that coffee mixture over iced milk or hot milk to create the latte.
What can I whip this with?
You can whip this up with a whisk and bowl, or an immersion blender and tall container, or a hand mixer with beaters or stand mixer with whip attachment. If you use a hand mixer or stand mixer make a double recipe, or you may have trouble getting the small amount whipped.

I tried heavy cream with brewed coffee and no, it did not whip.

No, you’ll need a sweetener to make this drink, but you can always try your favorite sugar alternative.
How long does it take to make this coffee?
From start to finish, under 2 minutes with an electric whisk.

Yes, I whipped three batches by hand, it took a couple of minutes to whip, it worlds well, you will certainly feel your muscle in your arm working.
Call this your 2 minutes arm workout for the day!
Can I make this with brewed coffee or espresso?
I tried making this with fresh brewed strong coffee, it would not whip up. If you do get it to work, let me know-how in the comments, I’d love to try it again with better results.

Now if you like boba go right ahead and add some in. I use THIS boba, it cooks quicker than other varieties I’ve tried. If you have leftover boba, just place it with some sugar and water and put it in the fridge. Then microwave it so it’s soft again. Mine took 1 minute to heat back up to the right consistency.
**If you want to SPIKE your coffee go right ahead and add a shot or two of whiskey to your drink. I added bourbon to mine and it was so delicious! This really is so delicious with bourbon if you like bourbon be sure to give it a try. If you want to see my other bourbon favorite take a look at my Kentucky Dirty cocktail.
**You can reduce the amount of milk by “watering” it down, often I do 1/2 milk 1/2 water, which tastes creamy without all the milk, and you can use any variety of milk you prefer.
