As someone who usually works in cafes, being stuck in my apartment and working all day without a good latte is not an ideal situation. I started dreaming of dirty chais, horchata lattes, caramel macchiatos, etc. I’ve felt a severe lack of caffeine in my system now that we’re being encouraged to stay and work from home, but TikTok’s famous Dalgona coffee recipe may have, in a strange turn of events, become the answer to all my coffee-related woes. It’s a sweet, creamy and, best of all, caffeinated treat that’s actually oddly easy to make at home. It’s time to become your own barista, folks.
Seriously, this coffee drink recipe is so easy, you don’t even need a coffee maker. So as someone who doesn’t drink coffee at home (I know, I know. I’m one of those people who spend $5 a latte. Get over it.) I’m ridiculously grateful for a recipe that doesn’t require a coffee machine. No, this frothy, creamy and sweet drink only takes a few steps to prepare and looks so delicious.

According to the TikTok, first grab a large bowl and some instant coffee. Add equal parts instant coffee, white sugar and hot water (very hot!). Take a hand mixer – or whisk if you don’t have one – and mix everything until it has a light caramel color. It should be nice and thick (like me). Taste a little to make sure it’s sweet enough, then set it aside. Next, take your glass of choice, add milk (this TikTok recipe calls for almond milk, but you can use whatever you have on hand) and ice, then pour your creamy coffee mixture over the all. Then, of course, sit down and enjoy the fact that you have just become a barista.
