Recipe Card


  • 3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 cups milk (or vegetable milk)
  • Ice cubes (for an icy version)
  • Cocoa powder and nutmeg for garnish (optional)


  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, pour all the instant coffee granules, sugar and hot water.

  • Step 2

    Preferably use a blender, hand mixer or milk frother foam maker, because if you use just your hand and a fork (or something like that) to whisk, it will take much longer and will require more efforts i.e. work from you ( and your hand may fall off ;-)).

  • Step 3

    After few minutes you should get a thick, airy and creamy texture.

  • Step 4

    Fill a large glass halfway with the ice cubes.

  • Step 5

    Then pour the milk up to about two-thirds of the cup.

  • Step 6

    With a spoon, add your whipped coffee on top.

  • Step 7

    And to finish your Dalgona coffee, sprinkle with nutmeg or cocoa powder on top.
