Interesting description of the origins of the Swedish word for drinking a cup of coffee – ‘fika’.
In the 1800’s it was weirdly fashionable to invert words. For example, ‘gata’ might have become ‘agat’ or ‘roligt’ might have become ‘igtrol’.
The slang word for coffee at that time was kaffi.
And when this is inverted, it becomes ……. FIKA!!
