During our visit to Sweden last Summer we were introduced to the custom of Fika. What is Fika? You might ask. Well, I shall tell you. Fika is coffee with company and conversation. It is not grabbing a to-go cup of chain-espresso on your way to doing something very important in your very busy life. Fika is an opportunity to slow down, take in the atmosphere with someone you care to spend time with, preferably with something scrummy to munch on the side. It is about intimacy and intentionality. Not to mention it goes perfectly with the whole Hygge craze.
Hygge worthy Fika.
