FAQ on How to make Dalgona Coffee
1.Can I use hot or cold milk?
Yes, you can definitely make it hot or cold – it works the same!
So if you wanted it hot, you would heat up your milk, then stir whipped coffee foam into the hot milk.
2.Does it have to be Instant Coffee?
No, you can make it with drip coffee but it needs to be very strong or espresso powder.
3.Which instant coffee do you use?
I used Nescafé Rich (the double filter, full flavor one)! Yes, it works with decaf coffee too!! This will not work the same with brewed coffee. I have also seen that it doesn’t work with 3-in-1 mixes.
4.Do I need a special tool like milk frother, hand mixer or stand mixer?
No. You can totally make it by hand but you will need a good round whisk (flat one is not as good) and a big mixing bowl to allow more air to get in.
But a hand mixer or a hand blender with a whisk attachment or stand mixer will make your life easier and will be quicker. Milk frother did not work for me.
5.Can I reduce the sugar amount?
Yes. I tried it with 1/2 the sugar amount but you will only get a soft-peak foam and the color will be darker.
6.Can I make whipped coffee without sugar?
Yes you can…BUT! I tested this and while it does fluff up in the same amount of time, it doesn’t stay fluffy as long as the sugar version. The sugar version stays fluffy for hours, this stays as fluffy for about 2 minutes, then begins to slowly dissolve for another 5 minutes until it’s liquid again. So, I suggest making it right before you want to drink the coffee and also it will be stronger compared to the sugar version.
7.What kind of sugar can you use to make whipped coffee?
You should use granulated sugar. You can use white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, coconut sugar.
8.Can I refrigerate the Dalgona foam?
Yes. It will keep for a couple of days in an airtight container but will probably start to become watery after.
9.Do I really need to whip it for a very long time by hand?
No, if you are using a bowl that is big enough and a round whisk it will take you around 3 minutes. I whipped mine by hand with a whisk in 2 minutes and 30-40 seconds(without stopping).
10.My foam is not forming the stiff peak, should I just whisk longer?
Yes and No. Yes, in cases where you are using a small bowl and small whisk. No, in cases where you are using a medium-large mixing bowl and a good round whisk. If you are using a spoon it will definitely take longer i.e around 10 minutes.
