Dalgona coffee

Over the past few weeks, as many of us retreat inside, dalgona coffee has become an online global coffee trend.

Tutorials and posts are displaying the making of dalgona coffee, which consists of milk topped with a thick layer of coffee foam that's made by vigorously mixing instant coffee, sugar, and water.

A new drink

Unlike a latte or a cappuccino, in which the froth comes from aerated milk, the fluffiness of dalgona coffee comes from the coffee and sugar itself.

Dalgona coffee was almost nonexistent until January 26 this year. A Korean YouTuber posted a clip where he uses a mixer to whip coffee, sugar, and water into a foam so thick it looks more like frosting or caramel pudding and then dollops it onto a glass of milk.

The coffee trend

Because people are called to stay indoors, and many cafes are closed during the outbreak, people are more open to trying out this drink at home.

The simplicity of the recipe makes it popular. Most people have sugar and instant coffee in their pantries. It is also fun to see everyone make their own version of a recipe and share their experiences.

The way coffee is prepared matters
  • Roasting reduces the number of chlorogenic acids, but other antioxidant compounds are formed.
  • Instant coffee may not have the same health benefits.
  • The oil in boiled coffee has cafestol and kahweol, compounds known to raise LDL, the bad cholesterol, and slightly lower HDL, the good cholesterol. However, the clinical significance of such small increases in cholesterol may be questionable.
Coffee and caffeine
  • A typical 12-ounce serving of drip coffee has 200 milligrams of caffeine.
  • Instant coffee has 140 milligrams of caffeine.
  • Espresso has the highest concentration of caffeine, 70 milligrams per one-ounce shot, but is consumed in smaller quantities.
  • Brewed decaf has caffeine too - about 8 milligrams.
