A quick origin tale to this special brew...whipped/beaten coffee has been popular for a while now enjoyed originally by people in India, Pakistan and Macau in China.

It went viral on the web after a Korean TV show nicknamed it "Dalgona" for it's resemblance to a Korean sponge candy.

The Pulselive Twist for Dalgona Coffee

We've sweetened up this yummy beverage with honey. The honey gospel is one that has been preached for years and we all know it does wonders for the skin. In this recipe, however, honey works well to sweeten the chocolate milk and blend well with that bitter coffee after taste. It also gets rid of that unflattering 'coffee breathe'.
