“Coffee is a beverage that puts one to sleep when not drank.” – Alphonse Allais
Every afternoon of every day I have a choice, eat lunch and get sleepy or skip it and live with hunger.
The American culture doesn’t recognize the need for a siesta after lunch. This is a great marketing opportunity for Starbucks, they have a Happy Hour rewards program if you buy a beverage in the morning and come back after 3pm.
I do indulge in a siesta whenever my schedule allows. It is not always possible though and that is where my afternoon high tea comes in. Before 4pm I indulge in either a cuppa or a fika.
Cuppa is literally a cup of tea, often times with friends. A fika is a Swedish coffee break, often times with friends. The idea behind both the cuppa and the fika is the same. An afternoon pick-me-up when energy levels are low. If you have good company to share in this daily ceremony, then it’s even a more merrier event than partaking solo. Solo cuppa and fika have their place too. Consider it a 15 minute mini meditation time.
I am sharing my recent invention with you friends. It takes two minutes, a coffee mug and a microwave.
You will need to mix up some Pumpkin Spice beforehand but this is easy and will make your fika simple and delicious.

“Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.”
– Anne Morrow Lindbergh
