Well, isn’t it just a coffee break you might think? Not quite. It is much more than that. So embedded in the Swedish essence it is now the custom that some companies add a clause to contracts declaring that employees are entitled to fika breaks. No wonder that Swedes among the top consumers of coffee in the entire world!
