Dalgona Coffee Recipe
After Korean actor Jung Il-Woo praised the Dalgona Coffee drink on the television show Pyunstorang, the coffee craze could not be contained! Dalgona Coffee took over TikTok and crept its way into every recipe blog in sight. We couldn't resist hopping on the trend with this Easy Dalgona Coffee Recipe along with providing you some information about the whipped coffee's origins.

What is Dalgona Coffee?

Dalgona Coffee is a whipped coffee made with instant coffee, sugar, and hot water. This mixture is served over either hot or iced milk. Dalgona is a Korean candy made by baking sugar, water, and baking soda. The drink is named after the candy because of the similar airy taste and texture.

Is Dalgona Coffee Easy to Make?

YES! Dalgona Coffee only has three core ingredients and takes about five minutes to prepare! This is a great recipe to make better at home coffee and can save you time and money by skipping a trip to a cafe. We do recommend using an electric handheld milk frother to easily whip your coffee mixture and achieve the ultimate frothy texture.

Dalgona Coffee Recipe

Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 2-5 minutes

Total Time: 1-6 minutes


  • Instant Coffee of Your Choice
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Hot Water
  • Milk of Your Choice


  1. In a large bowl, mix equal parts instant coffee, hot water, and powdered sugar. This ratio should be 1:1:1. Mix until everything is incorporated using the Milk Boss Milk Frother for best results.
  2. Pour your milk (about half a cup) into your cup or mug and add some ice. (Or heat milk if you prefer a hot drink.)
  3. Spoon your whipped mixture on top of the milk. You can either mix it all together or leave the frothed mix on top while you drink. Either way, you'll get all the flavors and froth!
  4. Dalgona Coffee Tip: Sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg, or any other spices/extracts you enjoy for added flavor!
  5. Enjoy!!!

      Bought my first frother and delivered one to my daughter who introduced me to lattes



      Something is off with steps 4 and 5.



      Do you have a video for the coffee recipie? I have been unable to duplicate the results shown with my new frother.

      I had previously mastered “quarantine coffee” using the whip attachment on my hand mixer. I was hoping to get the same texture with a frother but no luck so far.

      Thank you.
