In recent years, Scandinavia has been described as the happiest place on earth.
Central to this happiness is a little known word called “hygge”(hyoo-gah). Hygge is about coziness, comfort, and warmth, but also about being kind to yourself — giving yourself a treat, and giving yourself, and each other, a break from the demands of todays’ fast-paced life.
A slice of this happiness and hygge is nested in Seattle in the modern Café Hagen, in the heart of the bustling Seattle South Lake Union.
Cafe Hagen is an exemplar of the quality-obsessed, slow-coffee approach in this industry.
