Kokekaffe – Kokekaffe, or "steeped coffee," is the traditional Norwegian campfire method of drinking coffee. "Just boil the water, put the coffee in and let it steep for four minutes and then pour," says Tim Wendelboe. "You get all the oils and much more viscosity."
Cabin in the woods – When Norway's short summer rolls around, Norwegians head for the great outdoors. Says Esben Holmboe Bang, head chef of Oslo's three-Michelin-starred Maaemo restaurant, "I think kokekaffe is not about the coffee, to be honest, it's about the experience of being outdoors."
