Notes:

  • The recipe calls for two tablespoons espresso instant coffee. One tube of the coffee she purchased was 0.09 ounces (2.6g) and turns out to equal one tablespoon. You would need two packets to make one drink.
  • The amount of milk you add would depend on how strong you like your drink. We filled a 16-ounce glass with 8-ounces of milk and some ice. Start here and then decide if you want more or less milk. You can use regular milk or almond milk. Your choice!

 


Recipe

The recipe and a quick little video to show you our version. It’s a 1:1 ratio, although I preferred mine with only one tablespoon of sugar.

Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons espresso instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons very hot water
Directions:
  1. Empty instant coffee packets into a small bowl
  2. Add the sugar
  3. Dalgona coffee is an easy whipped coffee drink. ouritalianjourney.comMix in the very hot water. It does not need to be boiling; stir well
  4. Use a hand mixer and beat the three ingredients together until it becomes thick and pale in color.NOTE:  I have seen videos of people putting the ingredients in a larger bowl and using a whisk to achieve the same consistency
  5. Add a glass with the amount of milk you would like and a few cubes of ice
  6. Pour the instant coffee over the milk. If you were serving it, it looks pretty to serve it with the coffee floating on the milk.
  7. Stir and enjoy!

    My family uses real Bustello coffee and strain the coffee in a cloth sieve. Add a whole egg yolk and whip quickly. Add 1 tspn of sugar while still blending. Tastes like a cappuccino.
