You see, the kaffemik itself is much more than the special coffee or coffee cake that we’ll show you here. It is as much about social institution as it is about food. The idea of a kaffemik is to host an intimate gathering with friends and family in which there happens to be yummy foods to snack on and hot drinks to keep warm. As a way to demonstrate status, the host will provide food and drink for the entire kaffemik – sometimes even taking up to several days to prepare! – in anticipation of accommodating their local community. Nowadays, it’s less for the entire local community and more for your friends and family, but the kaffemik still remains a very intimate, social and localized tradition.
