corner view - coffee - Stockholm




This is a typical coffee saturday for me. With hot foamed milk in the morning. After lunch, black from thermos on the stand watching my daughter ride. Late afternoon black cup with apple and rhubarb pie. The only cup missing is the after dinner one. Also black. I think this is representative for most Swedes. I read somewhere that the only people drinking more coffee than we are the Finns. Also, people drink almost all their coffee at home or at work. Most people use coffee machines/brewers (i am not sure of the right english word) to make their coffee. Personally, I love a double espresso with lots of sugar but I havn't yet found the best way to make it at home. I am and have never been a dunker. Two coffees with milk, please in Swedish is två kaffe med mjölk, tack.

  3. So you are a night time coffe drinker! For making coffee at home, I cannot but recommend the Italian Moka Bialetti (they should really pay me for promoting their coffee makers:))

  4. The afternoon cup should always be accompanied by a slice of pie - or at least some sort of pastry :)

    Nice photo...

  8. Did you say rhubarb pie?!! I'll be right over! I just cut off a couple of stalks and will freeze as more mature so my mom and I can make custard rhubarb pie. Thanks....

  9. I join the girls for the rhubarb pie!
    And perhaps I´m a scandinavian and my parents adopted me....but I drink as much coffee as you do....perhaps even more! ;)

  21. I am in love with coffee. I feel that i'm not in my normal mood if I
    don't drink at least one coffee in the morning. Maybe that is an addiction... don't you think?
