How to Make Whipped Coffee

Whipped coffee, or cloud coffee, started as a TikTok trend and steadily grew in popularity. You've probably seen it on your Instagram feed. Here's how you can make it yourself!

What You'll Need:

  • 2 Tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons hot water

  • Ice
  • Hand mixer, milk frother, or whisk
  • Coffee cup
  • Foam lid

Start by mixing together your coffee, sugar, and water in a metal or glass bowl (it'll foam faster than if you use plastic). Whip it quickly to incorporate air into the mixture. You'll know you're done when stiff peaks form (like whipped cream or meringue). If you're using an electric mixer, it should only take a few minutes.

2. Fill your cup
