Q: What does FIKA mean?
A: Fika (pronounced Fee-kah) is a Swedish coffee break, but it's actually a lot more than that. Fika is a social institution in Sweden that dates back to the 1700s. Swedes have always been big coffee drinkers. In fact, they drink more coffee than almost anyone, anywhere in the world! Fika is all about taking time during the day to indulge in the simple pleasures of life, like coffee and good company.
