Here’s How to Make Dalgona Coffee: A Delicious Whipped Coffee Drink

Dalgona coffee

Have some instant coffee, water, and sugar on hand? Congratulations, you can make the coffee sensation making the viral video rounds: dalgona coffee.

What exactly is dalgona coffee?

In the following video, James Hoffman walks you through the process and shows you how to upgrade the experience:
