How to make Dalgona coffee?

Here's the recipe to make it yourself!
What you will need:
- 2 tablespoons of hot water
- 2 tablespoons instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 100 ml milk (hot or cold)
To make a Dalgona coffee, you need to combine hot water, coffee, and sugar in a bowl. Using an electric whisk, beat the mixture until you obtain a firm foam, like whipped cream. You can use a milk frother to make this step easier.
To serve the coffee, pour hot or cold milk (with ice cubes) into a cup or glass, and then add your creamy mixture.
To make your Dalgona coffee even tastier, you can add caramel, your favourite biscuit crumbled up, or cocoa powder. Now all you need to do is take a photo!
