Swedes love coffee! In fact, Swedes are among the biggest consumers on the planet. So, it comes as no surprise that IKEA, a Swedish-based company, would celebrate National Coffee Day in a big way. In Sweden, ‘FIKA’ is the word used to describe a coffee break. IKEA Norfolk invites Hampton Roads to enjoy a FIKA in-store on National Coffee Day. Visitors to the store on September 29, 2019 can enjoy a free drip coffee in the Restaurant all day long, no purchase necessary.
‘PÅTÅR’ is Swedish for a second cup of coffee and the name of IKEA’s coffee range. IKEA Family members can receive 25% off their purchase of PÅTÅR ground coffee and coffee beans September 16 through October 7, 2019. Customers can also enjoy a special Chocolate Lingonberry Mousse with their coffee in the Restaurant for just $1.49 on September 29.
IKEA is committed to offering good beans. But it’s not just about taste, it’s about quality and sustainability, too. The trick is to get all of this right. With IKEA’s PÅTÅR coffees, the company believes they have. All coffee served and sold in IKEA stores is UTZ certified, ensuring sustainable farming standards and fair conditions for workers. All crops are organically grown without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. And, IKEA uses only 100% Arabica beans, the species widely considered top notch for taste. Customers can even check the origin of their coffee beans by visiting www.utz.org/IKEA.

They offer them various opportunities for what they love to do! Building Hope is part of their vision not only to help these children but their families too.
The Roc Solid Foundation began with humble beginnings over 30 years ago when the founder Eric Newman was diagnosed with liver cancer at age three. By amazing those around him he beat the odds and has been in remission ever since. During his fight he lost loved ones that battled the same illness. Feeling he had to do something .
With fire and passion for helping kids with cancer, his first fundraiser benefited the local children’s hospital (Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters in Norfolk, Va.) that saved his life.
