Ok, so you want in on this airy coffee trend? We feel that. The whipped coffee trend, also known as Dalgona coffee has been popularized by a viral Tik Tok trend. It is a delicious and energizing sweet treat that many have opted to whip up at home during the pandemic.
What is Dalgona Coffee?
Dalgona coffee (Korean: 달고나커피) is a beverage made by whipping equal portions of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water until it becomes smooth and creamy. The coffee whip is then placed over hot or cold milk. The name is derived from dalgona, which is a Korean candy, which both looks and tastes like the dalgona coffee creation. The trend began in South Korea and was popularized on South Korean YouTube channels before making the leap to TikTok and going viral.
The key to making this the BEST possible batch of this diy treat is using the perfect instant coffee like VitaCup's gourmet instant sticks!
Please note that It is not possible to make dalgona coffee using ground coffee beans; instant coffee creates the dense and foamy topping and the reason for this has much to do with the drying process of the coffee granules.

Can I make this without sugar?
Absolutely, while it does fluff up just as much as the standard recupe we advise that you eat it right away because it does not maintain its airy consistency and begins to liquefy rather quickly in comparison to its sugary counterpart.
- 1 Packet of VitaCups’ Instant Coffee Sticks
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp hot water
- 3/4 cup to 1 cup milk (your choice), chilled or hot
- ice cubes (optional)
How to make whipped Dalgona Coffee
Step 1: Combine instant coffee, sugar, and hot water in a mixing bowl. If you are making dalgona coffee by hand, use a whisk to whip the mix about 400 times.
Step 2: If 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).
Step 3: Add the ice cubes in a mug then pour over the milk. Scoop out the whipped coffee on top of the milk. Serve and enjoy!
