  • Use only Instant Coffee Powder to make dalgona/whipped coffee.
  • If making small amount, you can use a milk frother to beat the coffee.
  • Never use an immersion blender to beat the mixture. The heat will make it taste bitter. So, use the blender that you use to make cakes.
  • The time taken varies depending on the type if mixer you are using. 
  • You can store the beaten coffee foam in refrigerator (not freezer) for up to a week.
