We love this… In Scandinavia, we love coffee – so much so that we consistently top the coffee-drinking charts. We often get together with friends and relax while enjoying a bit of ‘fika’, meaning ‘to have coffee’, often accompanied with sweet treats. This month we have selected a few items for all you coffee addicts out there, so that you too can enjoy coffee the Scandinavian way. By Ingrid Opstad  |  Press photos

The classic EM77 vacuum jug with the unique rocker stopper was designed by Erik Magnussen in 1977. It is one of Stelton’s best-selling designs and a true Danish design icon. Today, it can be found in many Scandinavian homes and is loved for its minimal look and functionality. It is available in many different colours, with a patented tilting top that allows you to serve your coffee with just one hand. Stelton ‘EM77’ vacuum jug 1L, £64.95

Eva Solo is known for its Nordic simplicity, and the To Go thermo cup is the perfect way to enjoy a hot coffee outdoors on a cold day. The cup has a practical carrying strap, making it easy to grab and hold, while the smart lid can be opened with just one hand – perfect when you are on the go. Eva Solo ‘To Go’ thermo cup, £26

This pretty little thing by Hile is a smart gadget for your kitchen, which works as both a coffee scoop and a bag closer. It helps you store your coffee properly in its own package, closing the bag airtight so that the coffee keeps its freshness and aromas protected from oxygen. Made with Finnish birch plywood, the scoop and bag closer has a modern and timeless look. Hile, ‘Kapu’ coffee scoop and bag closer, £19.75

Do not be fooled by the name: these cups may be called ‘Just my cup of tea’, but they are just as perfect for sipping coffee from. With a great selection of different patterns and colours, both on the cups and the saucers, these tableware pieces by House of Rym are easy to mix and match, creating a personal touch in your home. House of Rym ‘Just my cup of tea’ cups, approx. £15 House of Rym ‘Can I have another cup?’ saucers, approx. £15

A new trendy way to brew coffee is using a pour-over coffee maker, and this one by Bodum has a simple, clean design, fit for any Scandinavianstyle home. The glass carafe comes with a cork band, both functional and elegant, and the stainless-steel filter eliminates the need for disposable filters. It is easy to use, providing you with the perfect cup of coffee in minutes. Bodum ‘Pour Over’ coffee maker 1L, £50
