Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break is Finally Out!

with 5 comments

Fika The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break by Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall

There was a part of me that was a bit nervous that the release date of Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break would be a bit anti-climactic. I already received an advance copy of the book earlier this year, and after having worked on this project for the last two years, I know it inside and out. How exciting could the release date really be, particularly given that I’m not even in the US to celebrate it?

As it turns out, book publication day is kind of like a birthday. It’s exciting. And it’s worth celebrating.

I’ve got a behind the scenes post up on Foodie Underground today looking at all that went into publishing Fika.

If I am reminded of one thing today it’s that good projects take time, and that it’s always worth investing time in the things that you love, even if you can’t see the immediate payoff when you start them.

Now, to go and celebrate. Because life is short, and as my mother would say, you should celebrate often.
