For all caffeine-lovers who are missing our daily trips to your favorite coffee shops, dalgona coffee can bring a little bit of normalcy back into our lives. To make this creamy iced-coffee drink, all you need is an instant coffee, granulated sugar, hot water, and the milk of your choice (plant-based is a-OK). 

First, combine two tablespoons of instant coffee, two tablespoons of granulated sugar, and two tablespoons of hot water in a small mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer or latte frother to beat the mixture until it gets really thick, with a golden brown color.

Next, pour the milk of your choice into a glass with a few ice cubes. Scoop the mixture out of the bowl and place it on top of the cold milk—you can also mix the two parts together to make it look and taste more like a latte—And, viola, that’s it!

Lastly, don’t forget to take a picture of your dalgona coffee and post it on your favorite social media to become part of a growing coffee-obsessed community.
