Iced Caramel Macchiato with Dalgona topping

We recently had a request to showcase whipped coffee, also known as Dalgona coffee. Touted as an incredible and innovative way to serve up a creamy coffee drink, we tried it, and honestly... found it to be all fluff. We scoured the interwebs for varying techniques, but found that ultimately, coffee whip is a bit bitter and even with sugar and cream, we still weren't that impressed.

We DID however, decide that it makes a fun and fancy topping and when added in small portions to a sweet coffee drink (hot or cold), it is much more tolerable and adds a bit of flair. It's very easy to make Dalgona whip. All you need is a frother, instant coffee, sugar, and warm water.

In this recipe, we paired our Dalgona coffee with a great iced coffee recipe that's sweetness perfectly compliments the more bitter whip.

Give it a try and see what you think!
