Why is it called Dalgona Coffee?
This Dalgona coffee was first discovered in Macau when the famous Korean actor Jung Il-woo tasted a whipped coffee at a small restaurant. He described the coffee’s taste as similar to Dalgona which is a kind of Korean honeycomb toffee. Thus, the said coffee was then named Dalgona coffee.
Is Dalgona Coffee good?
Personally, I found it too sweet when I tried making it the first time. However, once I adjusted the sweetness, it’s delicious- this drink is something I would purchase at a fancy coffee shop.
What does Dalgona coffee taste like?
It actually tastes very similar to soft-serve coffee ice cream and it’s like eating whipped cream or the froth when you eat drink coffee that’s just begun to melt.
Tips on How to Make Dalgona Coffee:
- When adding water, you must make sure not to add more than two tablespoons of it to the other ingredients.
- Add flavored creamers to the milk to make different flavor variations.
- This can served hot by using hot milk and no ice.
- If you have a stand mixer, it’s faster to make the whipped coffee about 2 minutes. But if not, you can use a hand mixer, about 4-5 minutes.
