According to Wikipedia, Dalgona Coffee is a beverage made by whipping equal proportions of instant coffee powder, sugar, and hot water until it becomes creamy and frothy. It’s then added to cold or hot milk.
The viral trend of sharing recipes and photos of the DIY coffee first gained prominence during the social distancing orders in South Korea and for that reason, it is dubbed as the ‘quarantine drink’ or ‘quarantine coffee’

Ingredients to make Dalgona Coffee?
Firstly, it’s best to use instant coffee powder. Any brand would work. I just use locally available brands. During quarantine, you just use what’s available with no much drama
You can use regular breakfast sugar or granulated sugar. Moreover, Dalgona coffee is made using equal portions of coffee powder, sugar, and water, however, some of you may find this a bit bitter, so, to make it better just add another tablespoon of sugar
Most importantly, use hot or warm water to blend the coffee powder and sugar together. Warm water helps to melt the sugar and also yields a smooth and creamy fluffy mixture
Lastly, any milk of your choice is perfect for this recipe. Full-fat, skimmed milk or simply non-dairy milk. All of it sounds perfect. Moreover, you can have it hot or cold, I leave it to you
