People are absolutely loving dalgona coffee, which is the latest viral sip making rounds on TikTok. Since the whipped coffee only requires three ingredients, it's a great option for those on the hunt for a new morning pick-me-up. Here are 15 tweets about dalgona coffee that'll inspire you to give the recipe a shot, while avoiding the first-timer mistakes, of course.
On Tuesday, March 10, TikTok creator @iamhannahcho shared a recipe for dalgona coffee, also called whipped coffee, and users are chronicling their experiences whipping up the beverage on social media. Although, not everyone is getting the same results — Twitter users are posting snaps of their aesthetic concoctions as well as their failed attempts to achieve the creamy whipped cream-like consistency.
The dalgona coffee recipe sounds simple, but there is some finesse required to get the fluffy result. To make it, put equal amounts of ground instant coffee, sugar, and hot water in a bowl (most people use around two tablespoons of each ingredient, but feel free to adjust the amounts depending on how much coffee you'd like to use). Then, use a whisk, blender, or a milk frother to mix the ingredients until stiff peaks form. If you don't have any instant coffee on hand, don't worry. There are various ways you can substitute regular coffee for instant coffee so you can get right to making the trendy drink.
