The Coffee Academics releases Dalgona coffee

Hong Kong specialty coffee chain The Coffee Academics has launched its own version of Dalgona coffee at its Thai flagship store in Bangkok.

Dalgona coffee, which originated in South Korea, has become a viral craze on social media throughout Asia and sparked a leap in sales of instant coffee products which consumers use to make the beverage at home.

Different from the original recipe – which uses only instant coffee, sugar and milk – The Coffee Academics has elevated the concept with house-blended espresso, oat milk and organic coconut sugar to create its own version.

With Thai stores now reopened for dine-in service, guests can have the new coffee at The Coffee Academics’ stores or order it delivered via Wongnai or Lineman app. 

A Dalgona coffee costs THB240 (US$7.40) and will be available until June 30.

We’ve reached out to The Coffee Academics in Hong Kong to see if there are plans to release the blend in other markets.
