No Fika! No Sweden.

 To ‘FIKA’ is a Swedish concept, meaning simply ‘to have coffee’. ‘Fika’ happens at any time, morning, afternoon, evening and night. Fika can be savoured at home, at work or in a cafe. It can be with colleagues, family, friends, or someone you are trying to get to know.

 While the act of ‘fika-ing’ is simple; the cultural connotations associated with ‘fika’ are complexly enlightening. To ‘fika’ is a Swedish social and cultural phenomenon, a legitimate reason to set aside a moment for quality time. Yes, quality time for each and every Swede! Everyday! Two or more times a day. To ‘fika’ is not just to drink coffee it’s literally a guise for living a good life; accepted and respected by individuals, the state and corporations alike.
