Fika is a concept, a state of mind, an attitude. It’s an important part of Swedish culture, and today is being embraced around the world by millennials and generations beyond. Many Swedes consider that it is almost essential to make time for Fika every day. It means making time for friends and colleagues to share a cup of coffee (or tea) and a little something to eat. Fika cannot be experienced at your desk by yourself. That would just be taking coffee and cake. The place to do that is any retailer serving Kundalini coffee. Because they have a culture of freshly prepared food and social gathering.
Fika is a ritual. Even the well known Volvo plant in Sweden stops every day for Fika. All Swedes consider it important to make time to stop and socialize: to take a pause. It refreshes the brain and strengthens relationships. And it makes good business sense: firms have better teams and are more productive where Fika is institutionalized. Fika can be a verb. Swedes will say to each other, “Let’s go and Fika!” or “You and I Fika together so well”.
The concept has trended around the world in the Millennial era. In the USA the Huff Post shows you at this link… how to Fika. Exactly what you eat during Fika is not really important. The food is incidental to the companionship, the socializing and catching up with friends and colleagues. But whatever food you choose for Fika it should be fresh and well presented. Ideally it should be homemade.
