How coffee travelled from Ethiopia to Sweden and became a national tradition
Fika is a simple act, yet hard to explain. In essence, it is a break where friends, colleagues, or family gather for a cup of coffee and something sweet to eat. Although coffee should be present, fika is much more about slowing down than it is about drinking coffee and having a snack. It should also not be done alone, as the social aspect is the guiding principle of a fika.
