This thick coffee is made with the most regular ingredients but it is presented and blended in such a way that it has caught everyone's fancy. And it barely takes a few minutes to make! To make it easier, we have got you three recipes of the same coffee, so based on your preferences, you can get the perfect brew.

Dalgona Coffee Recipe


  • Instant coffee
  • White sugar
  • Hot water
  • Milk
  • Ice
  • Choco chips/ cocoa powder (optional)


  • Take about 1 tbsp of coffee. If you like strong coffee then take some more.
  • Take 1 tbsp of sugar (white/brown). Again if you don't want too sweet then you can decide upon a ratio.
  • Take 1 to 1 1/2 spoon of hot water.
  • Whisk it thoroughly till it forms a foam. Use a hand blender to whisk it faster.
  • In a cup, put 2-3 cubes of ice. Pour milk over it.
  • Now top the milk with the coffee foam.
  • You can top it with some cocoa powder or chocolate chips if you like.

You can also try it with hot milk if you like, but the foam might not stay that well on hot milk.
