    Instant Coffee for Mocha Dalgona Coffee

    To make Dalgona coffee you have to use instant coffee. It will not work if you use regular ground coffee. Any type of instant coffee will work – regular coffee or espresso. Avoid any coffees with MCT oils or creamers in them as well. The fats in the creamers and MCT can cause the whip to fall flat and not retain volume. The cocoa powder does this to come extent too. But you will still end up with a whipped coffee consistency.

You could even use half and half (although it is higher in carbohydrates).Other Nut Milk Options:

    Whisking Dalgona Coffee

    I recommend using an electric mixer to whip your coffee foam. It will only take a few mintues to acheive a velvety smooth foam. If you don’t have an electric mixer, you can whisk the coffee by hand. It will just take longer – about 8-10 minutes of constant whisking to produce the stable foam.
