Kaffikok illustration: wrapped up warm in a snowy landscape, a person sits and enjoys a coffee, before setting off on foot and stopping again some time later distracted by thoughts of another coffee. The distance travelled is shown as 1 Kaffikok.


A word from the Sami people of Northern Norway, Finland or Sweden, from ‘coffee’ and ‘boil’, used as a measure of distance for how far you can go before you need a cup of coffee.
