If you are a coffee lover, then you need to know this word: FIKA (fee-ka). It is a Swedish word that doesn’t translate well to English. It is a noun. It is a verb. And it must be experienced. You go to have a fika. And when you meet for fika, you fika. Followers of the 40 days of Fika series on FortyDaysFika.com & Ashevilleblog.com have been requesting to gather for Fika - so we are delivering! If you would like to slow down, meet some new people, and enjoy a cup o' joe, then come and pull up a chair for some coffee and companionship. Meet us every week at a different location around Asheville and join us for Fika - coffee and friendship. Just look for the Swedish flag on the table! Everyone is welcome!
Wendy is hosting an online small Fika Happy Hour gathering on the Zoom platform.
