My version of the Dalgona Coffee craze

Certainly we can't let this craze pass without taking the challenge of creating our own version of the famous Dalgona Coffee... hoping we're not soo late to the party!

Just some fact check, Dalgona drink actually originated from India and Pakistan where it is known as whipped coffee or beaten coffee. However, Dalgona Coffee became very popular these days because of a TikTok video released. This new drink originated in South Korea with three main ingredients - instant black coffee, hot water and sugar whisked together. The taste actually resembles that of the traditional Korean sponge candy with the same name. Ever since, there's hundreds of thousands of people posting about it in their social media pages, with their own recipe versions and cool creative presentations.

So here's our take on this viral recipe... it's actually our third time doing this, and so far this has been the best. You know you can always tweak it according to your taste buds right? Let me know your thoughts, tag me in your posts.
