Tres Leche Dalgona Coffee

Tres Leche Dalgona Coffee

Happy hour version of the Dalgona coffee! Just because… Or didn’t you know coffee and liquer are a perfect match.

I along with millions of other people around the world caught the Dalgona bug. This made me drink instant coffee again. Until the Dalgona buzz I had stopped drinking instant coffee. I bought fantastic coffee beans and ground coffee from Kim’s Coffee in Jos, Plateau State. And that was the best way to transition from being an instant coffee drinker to “proper” coffee drinker. And I’ve been hooked. I was in Ethiopia the birthplace of Coffee and I sampled a couple of coffee. I came back home with a few bags of exquisite coffee. I tried Coffee in Kenya and returned with Kenyan coffee too.

I’ve had Dalgona now so many times because it is fun to make. Of course I have to make the happy hour version. Lol
