Sweden has a long-standing culture of coffee drinking. This is a part of the ”fika” tradition, which basically means that you have a coffee paired with something sweet, like cookies or cake. No self-respecting employee expects anything less than that half an hour of the afternoon is reserved for a fika break with the colleagues.
