The story of Malmö - from industrial city to knowledge city - Will be followed by a new one. The coffee shop explosion in Malmö is examined here from a qualitative approach. Through interviews, observations and discourse analysis. The essay examines the relationship between the coffee shop boom and the City of Malmö's development during the 2000s and analyzes the physical and cultural implications this has had on the city area. Critical realism has been the basis for a synthesis that brought together the case study about coffee shop industry, the City of Malmö future vision and urban policy, reflected in Richard Florida's theory of the creative class and George Ritzers "McDonaldization" theory.
