Dalgona Coffee, Worth the Hype? Oh Honey, Yes {Recipe & Video}

Coffee lovers, by now you've probably seen the latest and greatest trend in coffee splashed all over social media -- It's called Dalgona Coffee, Whipped Coffee and 400 Coffee because of the hundreds of times the cloud of coffee froth is whipped when whisked by hand.  

The country of Macau is credited with this miracle of food science-magic, but fortunately for everyone currently sheltering-in-place, it's incredibly easy to make at home.  It takes less than 5 minutes, costs little, and is definitely worth the hype.

I'm a lover of honey lattes, so I made a minor tweak to the original Dalgona formula.  The original formula is 1/1/1 ratio of hot water to instant coffee to granulated sugar.

Heavenly Honey Whipped Coffee

Heavenly Honey Whipped Coffee

Yield: 1
A honey twist on the viral sensation of "Dalgona Coffee" -- easy and delicious.


  • 2 Tablespoons hot water
  • 2 Tablespoons instant coffee (I use Nescafe)
  • 1 Tablespoon organic sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon warm honey


  1. Simply put everything in a medium bowl and either whisk by hand or use an electric mixer to whip to stiff peaks -- you're going for a thick, thick, foam (think ultra lush shaving cream). The color will go from dark brown to very, very light.
  2. Fill a glass or mug with your preferred choice of milk (warm or cold) and top with the whipped coffee. Garnish with a pinch of cocoa power, cinnamon, cardamom, or whatever you like.
