Exploring the world through flavors is one of life's greatest joys. The culinary traditions of different countries offer a delicious window into their culture and history, and Sweden is no exception. This time, we're thrilled to bring you a unique coffee experience with our first-ever collaboration box featuring the mouth-watering pastries of Sweden. For this special project, we've joined forces with Malin Haak, co-owner, and chief pastry chef of Olof Viktors, an exceptional artisan bakery in Glemmingebro, Sweden. Malin and her partner Martin are the culinary artists behind divine confections that are almost too pretty to eat. We've worked closely with Malin to craft four flavored coffees inspired by the most decadent of Swedish treats, and we can't wait for you to savor them. If you ever find yourself in Sweden, make sure to stop by Olof Viktors to witness their pastry magic firsthand. But for now, let's delve into the delectable world of Swedish-inspired coffee featuring Kanelbulle, Kladdkaka, Prinsesstarta, and Appelkaka.

Our journey into Swedish pastry paradise begins with Kanelbulle coffee. This blend is a cinnamon sensation, capturing the essence of the beloved Swedish cinnamon bun. With warm notes of cinnamon and a touch of sweetness, every sip is like biting into a freshly baked Kanelbulle.

Kladdkaka coffee is a decadent delight. With rich notes of chocolate and the perfect balance of gooeyness, this coffee embodies the essence of the classic Swedish chocolate sticky cake, Kladdkaka.

Prinsesstarta coffee offers a royal indulgence. With layers of flavor, just like the iconic Swedish Princess Cake, this blend combines the sweet essence of marzipan, the freshness of raspberry, and the richness of pastry cream.

To round off our culinary adventure, the Appelkaka coffee is an apple pastry delight. With the crisp notes of apple and a hint of cinnamon, this coffee captures the essence of a classic Swedish apple cake.
