Coffee Cup Reader

Turkish coffee readings are done by professional fortunetellers .
When a reading is requested, the fortuneteller will do the following:

  • Prepare a strong, velvety Turkish coffee
  • Serve the coffee in small cups with a solid white inside
  • Ask the person drinking the coffee to drink the coffee with intent, meaning to think about their questions as they drink.
  • When they are done drinking, they will turn the cup over upside-down on the saucer
    Then, ask them to take the upside-down cup and saucer and while thinking about their intent, swirl the cup and saucer 3 times clockwise or counterclockwise, loosening the sediment inside
  • Once they are done swirling, ask them to put down the saucer and cup. While the sediment is draining down the cup onto the saucer, the fortuneteller will ask the person who drank the coffee about his questions. And fortune teller give answers of his questions.
