It’s common to see children leave out milk and cookies in most American households on Christmas Eve as their way of welcoming Santa into their homes. This tradition goes back to the Great Depression and was intended to instil a notion of gratitude and giving back for the gifts that kids received during the holiday season. Some believe that this ritual goes further back to the Norse mythology wherein Odin, the most important Norse god, was said to have an eight-legged horse named Sleipner for whom children would leave food out in the hopes that Odin would stop by and leave gifts in return.
Naturally we’ve created our own version of this and recommend treating Santa with a nice hot cuppa after his long journey. The Swedish have a term – fika – which loosely translates to “a break for coffee and nibbles” and is used as both a noun and a verb. We’re combining our two favourites – great coffee and Christmas to gift our friends and family the feeling of a fika.
Whether you’re getting together with loved ones (safely and with distance) or enjoying moments of calm with oneself, coffee speaks a universal language of warmth. It can signify the start of the day, a reward for a hardwork, a gathering of people and makes for the perfect gift. It’s not just the beans or equipment but rather the whole feeling of love and care that gets delivered.
