WHAT IS WHIPPED COFFEE?
Popularized in South Korea, whipped coffee (or dalgona, a name derived from a Korean sugar candy of the same name) is a creamy drink made by mixing instant coffee, granulated sugar and water. Using a hand or stand mixer to whip the ingredients together will produce a thick and sweet result that resembles whipped cream.
While many whipped coffee recipes call for instant coffee, you can also make dalgona using freshly brewed espresso. A dalgona made with freshly brewed espresso may not be as rich and creamy, because it results in a slightly less thick foam, but it can still boast bold flavors and aromas. It’s recommended to use a 1:1 espresso to sugar ratio when creating a dalgona and use it as a topping for cold drinks, because heat can affect the delicate foam.
