The French President Emmanuel Macron visited Finland this week. Amidst all the pomp and splendour of his mini-break, he took time to visit Helsinki’s Market Square. After checking out the stalls, he popped into one of the market’s tent cafes for a quick coffee with Sauli Niinistö. It was clearly not what he was expecting. His expression, once his lips tasted a brew as dark as the Finnish mid-winter, conveyed all you need to know about Finnish coffee. The internet, including my own Very Finnish Problems, had a ball.

“Do you call this coffee?” wrote Saara Nevala putting imagined words into Macron’s mouth. She doesn’t record Niinistö imagined response.
