My Recipes: My Version of Dalgona Coffee

Staying at home for a long time transforms you to anything you want to be. Recently Dalgona coffee is taking over social media for the past days and today I want to become a coffee barista! HAHAHA

Here’s my version of Dalgona coffee with a Vietnamese twist by simply adding pasteurized egg yolk. The yolk adds extra creaminess and decadence to the usual Dalgona coffee recipe.

Total Prep Time: 10-15 mins.


  • 3 tsp instant coffee (I prefer Nescafe Gold)
  • 1 tsp brown sugar (i prefer bitter coffee. you can add more sugar)
  • 3 tsp hot water
  • 2 cup fresh milk
  • 1 egg (optional)
  • ice cubes
  • chocolate syrup for garnish (optional)

Step 1:

In a mixing bowl, add first three ingredients and start whisking/mixing.

Step 2: (optional)

Take your room temperature egg (NOT COLD) and place them in a pan with water. Bring the water temperature to a steady 140 degrees for about 4-5 mins to kill potential bacteria. After 4-5 mins, place the egg in a bowl of ice bath to stop the heat.

Step 3:

Once the egg is cool, separate the egg white and add the egg yolk to the mixing bowl. Whisk for about 8-10 minutes total (much longer if you are doing it manually). Once you’ve achieved that thick frothy/creamy consistency, it’s time to assemble your Dalgona coffee!

Step 4:

In a clean glass, add the ice then the fresh milk. Then add your frothy coffee mixture on top of the fresh milk. Garnish with the liquid chocolate. ENJOY!
