Dalgona coffee is quite the current rage on social media. The recipe is a 1:1:1 ratio of instant coffee, sugar and hot water that creates a sweet, fluffy, whipped topping, that sits on top of iced milk. The creation came from Korean show Pyunstorang, “in which celebrities compete to come up with new products for convenience stores. Actor Jung Il-woo, who had encountered the coffee in Macau, christened it ‘dalgona’ after a Korean candy that resembles the foamy brown topping,” according to this article.
It’s very easy to find dalgona coffee recipes, instruction videos, social media posts, etc, all over the inter-web.
