Please meet the Korean coffee drink that has taken the internet by storm, dalgona coffee.

Always looking for different ways in how we can support our dairy farmers and enjoy the white gold in a new and exciting way, we have been scouring the internet for ideas and came across a gem! 

Please meet the Korean coffee drink that has taken the internet by storm, dalgona coffee. It is essentially like a cappuccino but upside down. The frothy coffee sits on top and the milk underneath. 

The good thing is, it only requires three ingredients and you can have it hot or cold. What’s not to love? 

 

 

 

Ingredients

2 tbsp instant coffee or espresso powder (flavoured instant coffee, like nutty hazelnut is an extra special treat) *If you don’t like your coffee very strongly, use a little less coffee. 

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp very hot water

400ml/14fl oz Welsh milk

 

Method

  • Add the instant coffee, sugar and hot water to a medium mixing bowl or a plastic measuring jug. Using an electric hand-held mixer, whip the coffee mixture until it is light brown, fluffy and holds stiff peaks when the whisk is removed. It should almost feel like a marshmallow cream and be a bit shiney. That’s the top part done.
  • If you’re having this as a hot drink, now is the time to heat the milk. If you’re having it as an iced coffee - get your ice cubes ready.
  • Now all you have to do is divide the milk between two heatproof glasses and spoon dollops of the frothed coffee mixture on top and smooth out with a spoon. If you want to be fancy - you can pipe it on. A sprinkle of cocoa powder on top is a nice little finishing touch.
  • Take a photo and share it with us. Only if you want to of course.
