If you haven't heard of the viral Dalgona coffee trend, you're missing out, and if you have heard of and tried it, you're most likely super hooked and have been whisking up the coffee every day. And while the coffee is worth every whisk, there are some hacks for making Dalgona coffee that can make that first sip a lot more satisfying (and easier to get to).
Though I'm on social media constantly (especially within quarantine), I'm not a huge TikTok user, which is where the recent trend went viral. My 17-year-old niece, however, is, and is the reason why I even found out about the trend.Since social distancing guidelines went into effect, I've been waking up in the mornings and hearing her aggressively whisking something like clockwork. I finally asked what she was doing and she encouraged me to try some. Though she's younger than me, my niece is way bigger of a coffee drinker than I am, so her Dalgona coffee was a little too bitter for my taste. But after some trial and error and a whole lot of teamwork, we managed to think of a few hacks that would help us make the coffee easier and enjoy it even more.
