What is Dalgona Coffee?

Dalgona coffee was a TikTok trend that originated in Korea and picked up in popularity during quarantine. The simplicity of the ingredients and recipe is one reason it caught on but most importantly the final product looks picture perfect! Food and drink trends grab social media’s attention when the product makes for a great post.


The Joy of Toasted Marshmallows

Most memories of toasting marshmallows are around a campfire, perhaps with some graham crackers and chocolate. Ideally the marshmallow is held over a fire just before it is burnt -- although some love little burnt edges on theirs! The wonderful golden color on all sides gives off a warm nutty smell that can make your mouth water. Toasted marshmallows are a childhood nostalgia which is why bringing this flavor into a new classic beverage is pure joy. 


Controlling the Sweetness Level

The standard recipe ratio for the dalgona coffee drink is 1:1:1 (coffee:sugar:water), however for some that prefer a coffee with their milk and sugar, this may not be sweet enough. Increase the ratio to 1:2:1, meaning 1 part instant coffee, 2 parts syrup or sugar, 1 part water. Especially when using a flavored syrup, this makes the selected flavor stand out even more. Play with the ratios yourself to find what is best for you!
