Take a coffee break – Scandinavian style

The ritual of fika is a Scandinavian tradition, a moment of calm and serenity. It’s a pause, a chance to chat over coffee with friends, family, colleagues, or lovers. Scandinavians are top consumers when it comes to coffee (rivaled only by the Dutch), but if you’re far away from Scandinavia, worry not. You can “grab a fika” the world over.
