Servings 2


  • 2 tbsp instant coffee or espresso powder
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp water very hot
  • 400 ml milk


  • In a large mixing bowl place coffee, sugar and hot water (1:1:1 ratio)
  • Using a hand mixer or electric mixer, whisk until thick and creamy.
  • Fill only 3/4 of a cup with cold milk and add ice cubes.

  • Do I have to use sugar? The sugar helps the coffee whip to a fluffy and stable texture that holds its shape for a while. You can reduce sugar amount, but I’m not sure it will be so fluffy. If you’re really sensitive to sugar, you can reduce it down, just know that your coffee won’t be as fluffy.
  • What kind of milk to use: You can use cow’s milk, dairy free milk such as almond milk, oat milk or any other kind of milk that you prefer.
  • Can I make Dalgona coffee without electric mixer? Yes, you can whip the coffee using a regular whisk, it may take a little bit more time, but it absolutely possible.
