There are so many different ways to enjoy coffee and people are pretty particular with their preferences. Some people will settle for only the trendiest barista creation while others are happy with a cup of black coffee. The hottest trend on TikTok right now is Dalgona coffee (aka “whipped coffee”) and if you’ve seen any videos, it’s obvious why. With so many of us social distancing, we’re sure you’ve seen the trend and are wondering what it is and how you can make it.

What does Dalgona even mean? Dalgona means honeycomb candy that originated in Korea. It is a Korean candy made with melted sugar and baking soda and is a popular street snack. While traditionally made as a type of hard candy, the flavors of Dalgona have been repurposed and added to coffee to create the Dalgona coffee you’ve seen on TikTok.

Despite its fancy appearance, Dalgona coffee is actually quite simple to make. To make your Dalgona coffee, blend instant coffee with sugar and hot water either by hand or with a handheld frother until it becomes thick and foamy. Spoon your mixture over your choice of milk and you have a beautiful and delectable Dalgona coffee.

On its own, Dalgona coffee is pretty amazing. However, at Torani we flavor experts like to push the boundaries of delicious flavor and came up with fun ways to take Dalgona coffee to the next level. By replacing sugar with Torani Syrup, give your drink an exciting flavor boost. Whip your coffee with the sweet flavors of Vanilla or add in the smooth taste of Caramel.
