Classic Dalgona Coffee

The Classic Dalgona Coffee is made with equal parts of white sugar, instant coffee and hot water. This mixture is then whipped vigorously with a whisk to form a dense foam (yep, time to workout). You can use a hand mixer alternatively if you want to save time and effort.

Once a dense foam is formed, it is poured gently over a cup of warm milk.

  • 1 tbsp Instant coffee
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Hot water
  • cup Milk 1 cup, chilled or heated
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  • Combine instant coffee, sugar and hot water in a mixing bowl. Mix them well. Then using a handheld mixer (stand mixer or milk frother) whisk it on high speed until the coffee mixture forms a stiff peak (2-4 mins).
    If you dont have any of these tools, you can whisk it manually by hand. It still works! Just whisk it about 400 times.
  • Add the ice cubes in a mug then pour over the milk. Scoop out the whipped coffee on top of the milk. Serve.


  • 1 Tbsp = 15 ml
  • I havent tried other forms of coffee (such as freshly ground coffee etc.) with this recipe. But many who tried these types of coffee commented that they dont work as well as instant coffee. They simply dont get the same creamy status.
