If you’ve ever come across a lemming in Swedish Lapland, you probably thought of them as quite aggressive beings. Now we’ve gotten the inside scoop – they’ve just been frustrated and misunderstood. Markus Lemke lets us in on their secret message and the mission that he and his colleges have been assigned: to bless the world with dark roasted “kokkaffe”.
Let’s start by just explaining the term “kokkaffe”. It’s the traditional way of preparing coffee in Sweden – boiling it in a coffee pot, preferably over an open fire. It’s a tradition barely being kept alive by keen outdoor enthusiasts and the odd café.
In a world where single-shot-skim-milk-macchiato kind of coffee is taking over, the boiled coffee that takes its time to cook is falling into oblivion. But revolution is coming with Lemmelkaffe – the world’s first dark roasted coffee. It takes some time to cook – and it’s supposed to take time. Time to enjoy your company and great conversations.
