dalgona coffee

Happy Saturday Friends! I bet many people are in their self quarantine and looking for new things to entertain themselves, right? And yeah, Dalgona Coffee, the cold latte drink, which comes with yummy sweet and bitter coffee foam on top, is the best way for you to kill your free time and of course to build some muscle while you’re quarantined at home. Most of instagramers and youtubers used sugar for their Dalgona Coffee recipe but today I tried to use honey instead of sugar. The result was amazing with beautiful stiffed foam.

  • You can make Dalgona Coffee by mixing instant coffee with different kinds of sugar (brown, white, coconut) or sweetener (stevia…) if you’re on diet. However, I tried once with stevia and the taste was awful 🙁 (you know that chemical aftertaste).
  • You can use hand mixer to mix the ingredients (the stiff peaks form in less than 5 mins) or you can also use spoon/ whisk to mix it but it may take 20 mins (i gave up after 10 mins)
  • You can use filter coffee (try Vietnamese filter) but for the best result you should leave the coffee in the ref overnight.

Below are step by step how to make Dalgona Coffee with honey.
