Dalgona Coffee recipe
    • Heat a small amount of water until boiling point. You will only need 2 tablespoons of it. 
    • Mix in a bowl: 
      * 2 tbsp of NESCAFÉ GOLD 
      * 1 tbsp of white sugar 
      * 1 tbsp of brown sugar 
      * 2 tbsp of boiling water  
    • The success of your coffee is in how you mix it. Be prepared to mix for 5-10 mins at a fast pace. Alternate between circular, zig zag, and side to side motions. It should be fluffy and stable when ready. 
    • Once fluffy, golden, and stable, set aside. 
    • Quickly put some ice up to 2/3 of your glass. Pour in NESTLÉ Fresh Milk but leave enough room for your candied coffee cloud. 



    Want to have more fun with it? Here are a few recommendations: 

    - Put crushed KitKat on top 

    - Add some honey for a bit more balance and a more complex sweetness 

    - Sprinkle with cinnamon for some holiday cheer. Chocolate or salted caramel syrups work as well.
