Learn more about coffee

Welcome to Peter Thelander’s world of Coffe. I’m about to start a new journey in my life and learn more about coffee. I have started this blog as a document for me to follow my progress. I will write about my big interest in coffee. This should be considered as a personal blog where I can record my findings and follow my progress over time. I’m by no means an expert nor a professional, just an average guy with a nerdy interest in coffee. But I’m eager to learn more about coffee. I hope I can inspire others who also want to know more about coffee.

Coffee a part of my life

Coffee has been a part of my life since I was a kid. I still remember waking up to the lovely aroma of coffee and the sounds of my parents started preparing the day. But I didnt start drink coffee until I did my military service and needed to stay awake during long transports. Here in Sweden, there is a strong tradition of drinking coffee. We do it often and preferably as a fika.

Fika is a concept, a state of mind, an attitude and an important part of Swedish culture. Many Swedes consider that it is almost essential to make time for fika at least once every day. It means making time for family, friends and colleagues to share a cup of coffee (or tea or lemonade as a kid) and a little something to eat. For me it one of the best thing about Sweden. The culture of fika and drinking coffee together has in some way been an important part in forming the swedish society. Read more about fika here.

So please join my journey to learn more about coffee! Please feel welcome to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions about my coffee blog.
