Why I did not like #Dalgona coffee?

The coffee trending this summer month is popular dalgona coffee. If you are a social media user you must have definitely seen many social influencers making and trying out the South Korean coffee viral sensation #dalgonacoffee on Instagram, TikTok, Youtube.

This version of coffee drink is made by blending equal proportions of sugar, instant coffee powder, hot water until it gets that creamy texture and later on adding that rich foam to cold milk.

I tried making it at home due to the lockdown. Although I like my coffee to taste a bit stronger, there is always the next attempt.

 What I liked about Dalgona Coffee

It needs a few ingredients which are readily available at home. Instant coffee, sugar, hot water, cold milk. 

 What I did not like about Dalgona coffee

It is time-consuming, it took me 15 minutes to make compared to instant cold coffee. It gets time-consuming if one is using a hand blender, however electric blending machine makes it way easier. I had used an electric blender, again a lot of dishes to wash. It surely needs a lot of mixing after the dalgona drink was made. Due to the equal amount of sugar added it tasted way sweeter as compared to the way I like cold coffee to taste. 

Dalgona coffee originally got its name from a Korean honeycomb toffee called dalgona, due to the resemblance in taste, however dalgona coffee doesn't actually contain honeycomb. 

Although at first I was excited to try out the new ‘Dalgona coffee’, after tasting it I prefer the traditional cold coffee. Dalgona coffee taste very sweet and needs a lot of mixing after the drink was made. Why cold coffee if you may ask? It is a quick, easy recipe, blend everything in the mixer and the cold coffee gets ready in no time. Plus I add less sugar so it tastes amazing. Hence thumbs up to cold coffee.

Dalgona coffee is a fad but cold coffee wins anytime. Dear reader if you like Dalgona coffee or the good old cold coffee it is your choice after all. I prefer cold coffee anytime.
