"Whipped coffee" is the latest trend to take over the coffee world as people are whipping up this caffeinated creation during their extra time at home amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The light and airy coffee drink, known as Dalgona, comes from South Korea and has gone viral on social media. The coffee drink recently landed on TikTok's trending page with over 312,000 videos using the hashtag #whippedcoffee.

Food blogger Karly Giang was on board with the four-ingredient coffee trend.
"It's not only aesthetically delectable, but it is also dangerously addictive if you're a coffee lover," Giang told "GMA." "You can definitely taste the caffeine in the whipped coffee, and I recommend drinking it using a straw."
