How To Make The Creamy Coffee That’s All Over Tiktok

As stores and restaurants close and many of us are stuck inside amid the global coronavirus outbreak, a new at-home coffee recipe has taken the Internet by storm. On TikTok, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, social media users have started making dalgona coffee, a creamy iced-coffee drink that combines a mixture of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water with cold milk.

If you’re looking for something to do while practicing social distancing and isolation, this coffee trend has your name written all over it. Making dalgona coffee is super easy and will give you the chance to join a global community of people posting the treat online. The hashtag #dalgonacoffee has 10.7 million views on TikTok and over 4,000 posts on Instagram. The trend takes inspiration from a South Korean candy called dalgona, a sugary toffee with a sponge-like texture that’s made by heating sugar, oil, and baking soda, according to VICE, and it really took off around the end of February.

For all us caffeine-lovers who are missing our daily trips to our favorite coffee shops, dalgona coffee can bring a little bit of normalcy back into our lives. When we’re all stuck in our homes, might as well bond over a delicious coffee drink, right?
