Latest food trend tto take over Instagram is Dalgona Coffee. The craze of making Dalogna coffee has become widespread while people stay at home amid the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, global pandemic. The recipe is easy to make at home when coffee shops around the world are closed. Dalgona coffee is made with equal parts of instant coffee, sugar and water that are whipped to sit atop a glass of milk like a tall, foamy hat!
This iced coffee is the latest trendy drink that might even rival latte art on social media this year. Dalgona coffee is the latest coffee fad that has taken the internet by storm, and there is good reason behind why exactly it has become the rage all of a sudden.
Dalgona coffee is not something entirely new, but it is a fast growing trend in the coffee world. This way of drinking coffee is similar to espresso with crema on top. Crema holds volume, which gives the overall beverage a velvety finish due to the foam texture. Crema also adds more sensory detail to coffee, helping some forget the bitterness that can come from some types of coffee beans.
The key component to making this drink is the instant coffee. It’s the magic from instant coffee that creates this dense and foamy topping, which has a lot to do with the drying process of the coffee granules. A common technique that is similar to dalgona coffee is beaten coffee. It involves incorporating air into a paste of instant coffee and sugar until thick and frothy mix evolves.
