  • Do I have to use sugar? Sugar makes, that the coffee is compacted into a fluffy and stable consistency, which keeps its shape for a while. You can reduce the amount of sugar, but I'm not sure, will it be so fluffy. If you are really sugar sensitive, you can reduce it, just remember, that your coffee will not be so fluffy.
  • What kind of milk to use: You can use cow's milk, non-dairy milk, such as almond milk, oat milk or any other type of milk, which you prefer.
  • Can I make Dalgon's coffee without an electric blender? So, the coffee can be whipped with an ordinary whisk, this may take a little longer, but it is absolutely possible.
