These days our on-the-go lifestyle leave our coffee rituals to grab-and-go lattes and the instant gratification of K-cups. If you are looking to be more intentional with your cup of joe, consider Fika. Pronounced “fee-ka,” the Swedish ritual of taking a coffee break is a way to slow down and savor the moment of sipping coffee and enjoying a delicious pastry.
To embrace the tradition, surround yourself with these wares that are designed in Scandinavia. Both beautiful and functional, these home goods from Sweden and its Nordic neighbors will help you experience a true fika.
