Fika is often translated as “a coffee and cake break”, which is kind of correct, but really it is much more than that.
Fika is a concept, a state of mind, an attitude and an important part of Swedish culture. 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.
Origin of the name The word fika actually derives from the 19th-century slang word for coffee: kaffi. Invert the word kaffi, and you get fika.http://www.swedishfood.com/fika
It wasn’t too sweet! Pairs nicely with coffee.
너무 달지도 않고 커피랑 같이 먹으면 딱이에요!
