"hands everyone a nice cup of Assam except the coffee drinkers who get fika instead* [The Lost]

Fika has eight locations in Manhattan, but no locations outside New York.

They sell online, though, and the one variety that might interest me Fika Brew, which is described as "Swedish coffee culture." I currently drink coffee made with grounds from Gevalia, which is Swedish.

Would you consider Gevalia instead of Fika?

"Fika (Swedish pronunciation: [¬≤fiːka]) is a concept in Swedish culture with the basic meaning "to have coffee", often accompanied with pastries, cookies or pie.[1] A more contemporary generalised meaning of the word, where the coffee may be replaced by tea or even juice, lemonade or squash for children, has become widespread. In some social circles"

I liked it the original way: To have coffee. smiley - smiley Swedish coffee.
