Instant coffee is back, big time. There are tons of delicious brands out now, along with some fun recipes for things like dalgona (aka whipped) coffee. The instructions for whipped java are easy: vigorously whisk 2 tablespoons of instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons of hot water. Pour over a glass of milk for a sweet treat with a surprising texture. Whether you’re making a whip or drinking it straight, here’s what to consider before buying instant grinds.
