Coffee Corner


Nazli Nazemian, Journalist

Now that I have been quarantined for more than 6 months I have finally found the key to maintaining my sanity: coffee. So, as an attempt to help my fellow Seakings, I have decided to start a Coffee Column in which I share with you the most delicious coffee trends and drinks to curb all your caffeine needs. For this week’s coffee corner I have decided to take a trip down memory lane, aka March 2020.
Although it feels like forever ago, many of us raided our social media stories with pictures of the aesthetic Dalgona Coffee (aka the Tiktok whipped coffee). Even though this delicious drink looks intimidating to make, it only requires a few ingredients. Today I will be combining this famous Tiktok trend with an even more famous coffee trend: the Pumpkin Spice Latte!
The steps to make the Pumpkin Spice whipped coffee are very similar to making the regular whipped coffee, only with a key difference: adding pumpkin spice. To make one serving you will need:
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 2 tbsp of Grounded Pumpkin Spice (found at Trader Joe’s)
  • Milk (hot or cold)
  • Ice (optional)


  1. Add the instant coffee powder, sugar, pumpkin spice, and hot water into a mixing bowl.
  2. Whip using a stand mixer, hand mixer or a whisk until frothy and has soft peaks.
  3. Pour milk into a cup with ice and spoon some foam on top. Take a pic for instagram before mixing the layers to enjoy!

This drink is perfect for those who like their coffee sweet and creamy, and even if you don’t, this delicious drink summarizes Fall in a cup. So, for your next zoom classes, make this drink in between as a pick-me-up and enjoy the instant caffeine fix!
