Dalgona Whipped Coffee is the new creamy coffee you can't stop drinking at home (and sharing on social platforms).
It is all over on TikTok, it is super tweeted and has now monopolized your coffee lover Instagram feed.
Whipped coffee (aka Dalgona coffee) is viral.
It’s sweet, it’s soft, and above all it can be made with only 3 ingredients that we normally have at home.
In short, one of those recipes that allows us to spend time within our house walls without forcing us to queue at the supermarket or even worse forcing us to continuously refresh our basket of our online shop.
Let’s make this #stayhome a little less bitter and a little bit more sweet.
Coffee/sugar ratio 1:1
Start making coffee with your moka ( you can find Alberto Polojac's suggestions in this article) and put it on low heat level, leaving the lid raised, so that it does not form condensation which would drop into your coffee (and you don't want that to happen).
As soon as the Moka starts to gurgle, turn off the heat and pour your coffee into a bowl. Wait a while for the temperature to drop, better if you let it cool in the fridge.
In fact, cold coffee is more viscous and alone it could still whip because it contains many polysaccharides and other surfactants that lower the surface tension of the liquid facilitating the introduction of air; more air = more bubbles, more bubbles = more foam.
Sugar delays the whipping a little but allows you to obtain a tick foam, which is what you want to achieve, otherwise goodbye to the "coffee cream" effect.
That said: add the sugar and start whipping.
It is important to use the hand whisk, so you can do some physical activity so the levels of stress and anxiety of these days will drop immediately.
If you are among the few who continued to train within the four home walls then no, the electric whisk will suffice.
Continue whipping until you get a soft and thick compound like a cream.
At this point, take a nice glass (yes, even the eye wants its part), put two ice cubes and milk in it, until you fill the ⅔ of the glass. With a spoon, fill the rest with the homemade coffee cream to the brim.
Now you can enjoy your dessert.
I made it with our washed Rwanda coffee which, already freshly ground, releases those intense aromas of ripe red fruit and which combines perfectly with the sweetness of the milk (if you are curious to learn more about the food-coffee pairings, take a look here).
You can try to experiment a little: starting from the basic recipe you can add some spices, or try different types of specialty coffee, change the milk (try for example with the almond one).
And that's it!
