If you’re living anywhere that’s not under a rock, there’s a good chance you’ve seen people sipping on the now-famous Dalgona coffee. Lauded to be a simple barista-worthy creation you can whip up with no more than three ingredients (four, if you count water), the cloud-like beverage has taken the world by storm (pun intended).

A quick introduction to the trendy drink: Dalgona coffee is named after South Korea’s well-loved street candy, a sugary and foamy honeycomb snack. A part of what made this so popular amongst the #StayHome crowd and aspiring home chefs is its simplicity and the desire to share homemade creations with others. 

But at the end of the day, regardless of how pretty, it still tastes of instant coffee mixed with some sweetener. And while a hit among some, it’s understandable how the trend might not resonate with others. 

That said, non-coffee fans or people looking to level up this drink, we’ve got you covered. It’s time to bring your favourite flavours to new heights and board the Dalgona trend train!
