Personal experience: how to make the most Instagrammed dalgona coffee with lush froth
Self-isolation time has become the most valuable gift for many of us. We now have time for something that has always been postponed until better times: reading books, drawing pictures, cross-stitching, photographing and any other enjoyment of creativity.
A lot of cozy home pictures with beautiful dishes and recipes that are impossible to tear yourself away from appeared on Instagram.
So, the hero of this new time and social networks has become coffee with an insanely appetizing lush foam, which cannot be obtained with the help of cappuccinatore… The trend came from Korea, where the trendy drink is called Dalgona coffee, in honor of Korean butterscotch. True, the taste of the drink bears little resemblance to the famous sweets. The LA Times predicts that Dalgona coffee will become more popular than latte art (which we readily believe – all the prerequisites, or rather the number of photos, are there).
The secret is in a special recipe and preparation, which I, beauty director of BeautyHack.ru Vasilisa Kakorina, tested and shared my emotions and life hacks.
I want to note that Dalgona coffee is the drink that everyone can get right the first time. This is not a story when you try to cook trendy Japanese pancakes or meringues according to a “simple” recipe, and the result of a long work goes to the trash heap.
There is only one thing, but … the coffee turns out to be very beautiful, but impossibly sweet and strong. The drink is definitely instagram, but not for everybody.
- 2 teaspoons of instant coffee
- 2 teaspoons of sugar
- 2 teaspoons boiling water
- 400 ml milk
Mix all the ingredients and beat with a mixer for a few minutes or with a fork for 10-15 minutes. Put the resulting foam in a cup on milk or espresso, if you want “stronger”. In combination with milk, the drink resembles a strong Starbucks frappuccino, and in the second case it works as an effective energy drink, so strong coffee is obtained. For preparation, you can use regular or any vegetable milk, and coffee can be replaced with matches.
The whole process takes a few minutes, so we advise you to experiment with dalgon coffee. You will definitely take longer to photograph it than to cook.

At best, you’ll learn a cool new coffee recipe for yourself.
And if you don’t like the drink itself, you can take a cool Instagram photo.
