Dalgona Whipped Coffee- What is it and where did it Originate from?

This attractive looking whipped coffee has suddenly become the new rage and is all over the internet right now. You can see why- Dalgona coffee looks amazing and only has 3 ingredients which you have probably all have in your cupboards ready to go!

It is thought to have come from South Korea after it went viral on South Korean YouTube channels, however- It can also be traced back to the Indian Subcontinent where it has been a favourite long before it went viral.

It gets it’s name from toffee look it has once the coffee has been whipped. Dalgona Coffee surprisingly doesn’t contain Dalgona but apparently there is one solitary cafe in South Korea that serves Dalgona in it!

Dalgona Coffee Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon instant coffee (per person)

  • 1 Tablespoon white sugar (per person)

  • 1 Tablespoon hot water (per person)

The coffee takes a lot of whisking….I mean a lot! There are 3 ways you can whisk the Dalgona coffee depending on what set up you have and they vary in effort levels:

  1. (Easiest) Use an electric whisk if you have an inverter or hook up. We us this cheap  electric whisk off amazon which gets used for baking.

  2. A battery operated milk frother- We use this cheap  milk frother  for making lattes in the campervan but it could be used to whisk rather than a hand whisk.

  3. (Hardest) use a hand held whisk. We use a Joseph Joseph whisk  for other cooking (used a lot for pancakes) as it has a clever fold down design which makes it stack in drawers easier.

And that’s it! It’s so easy and looks and tastes amazing- we hope you enjoy! As usual please share your creations with us on Instagram by tagging @brownbirdandcompany we would love to see them!
