  • Water (2 Tbsp)
  • Chocolate Sauce (Optional for seasoning)
  • A Bowl (big enough to whisk the ingredients together)


For whisking purpose, ideally a whisk is recommended but, if you do not have a whisk available, then the whisking should be done with a fork which might just prolong the time of the formation of the foam, but you will get there, eventually.

In a bowl, add 2 tablespoon of coffee powder with 2 tablespoon of white sugar along with 2 tablespoon water. Whisk the ingredients thoroughly and vigorously.

Whisking of the ingredients

Whisking should be continued till the ingredients blend together to form a thick micro-foam.

The continuous whisking can last up for more than 20 to 25 minutes to attain the desired thick creamy foam.

The Dalgona Coffee, is nothing, but, all about its foam.

Once the foam is ready. In the cup you will drink your coffee, pour the chilled milk and top it up with the prepared foam. the foam settles on the milk and does not sink to the base.

On the foam then add a few drops of chocolate sauce and make swirls of it using a fork as shown in the picture below.

Enjoy your cold coffee.

If you are looking for serving more people, make sure, you are increasing the equal number of all three ingredients. (sugar, coffee, water). The equal proportion is ideal for the thick foam.


Honestly, it was like cold coffee, but without ice cream and more on the bitter side.

However, It would be enjoyed more by hardcore coffee lovers, as it is strong and bitter.
