Sweden is a country of many traditions, perhaps none as lovely as the concept of having a ‘Fika’. The word ‘Fika’ dates back many centuries to the 1700s, when coffee was introduced to Sweden and is a mixture of the letters for the Swedish word for coffee; kaffi (later kaffe). Coffee drinking became a tradition mainly at home as a social event, unlike the rest of Europe and was often served with pastries or a snack. The word Fika later evolved into a form of socializing, while enjoying a beverage, often coffee or tea and eating pastry. The Swedish tradition of Fika is spreading through Swedish people and businesses around the world. Swedish Fika is a warm, kind and lovely way of bringing people together that we are here to help spread.
