About the event

Turkish coffee fortune telling

Not the coffee, nor the coffeehouse is the longing of the soul a friend

is what the soul longs for, coffee is just the excuse.

Do you believe in fortune telling? The Turkish coffee has a long history

which not only tells of its unique tastes and high quality as a coffee

blend but the methods of telling the fortune of the person who drank

the coffee in the cup. It is an old custom that has ‘mystified’ the Turkish

coffee over the years making it one of the most sought-after global

coffee brands.

Who can tell your future?

Anyone can tell fortune from the coffee cup, but it must be someone

who did not drink from the cup. The tradition has been passed down

over the years, and many Turkish people know how the process. You can

also have your fortune told from a cup of Turkish coffee by a

professional.

How’s it done?

It is quite an intriguing process. You will need to enjoy your cup of

Turkish coffee drinking from one side of the cup till it is finished. Place a

saucer on the finished coffee cup and make a wish. The cup will then be

raised to the chest level and turned anti-clockwise a few times. Turn the

cup upside down on the saucer and leave it to cool. It is believed that

placing a coin on the coffee cup turned upside down will remove any

bad signs that maybe be foretold. When the cup has cooled down, the

reader lifts the cup and starts telling the future of the person who drank

the coffee from the patterns formed in the coffee cup and on the

saucer.

Telling fortune from coffee cups has become very popular. It is said that

both the past and future can be told from reading a coffee cup. The

process of divination involves regarding the coffee as to horizontal

halves. The shapes formed in the lower half are regarded as the past,

and the shapes formed in the upper half represent the future. On the

right side, positive readings are done while the patterns on the left side

of the cup are regarded as negative which could be indications of

attacks, health issues, financial problems, etc. it is also known that the

fortune teller can only see forty days into the future while reading a cup

of coffee. There is also the issue of a “prophet’s fortune telling” where

the reader finds it difficult to separate the coffee cup from the saucer. If

this happens, it is said that the person who drank from the coffee cup

has a bright future hence there is no need to tell their future. In another

situation, while lifting the coffee cup off the saucer, if large pieces of

ground coffee beans fall off the cup onto the saucer, it is said that the

person who drank from the cup will soon get relief from their problems.

However, if coffee is noticed to be dripping onto the saucer as it is being

lifted, the person who drank from the cup is told that they may soon

undergo experiences that will make them shed tears.

The shapes formed on the saucer while the coffee cup was upturned are

also interpreted. These shapes are regarded as a representation of the

situation in the person’s home. If the coffee residue hasn’t touched

major parts of the saucer, it is said that there will be relief in the 

person’s home. However, signs of an irregular confused pattern is

usually interpreted as the tendency that there will be a funeral or illness

related issues in their home. The coffee reading session is ended by

flipping the saucer once, and if a drop of coffee rolls beyond the radius

of the saucer, it is interpreted as the persons wish will come true. In

addition, during fortune telling by reading coffee cups, the reader should

not reveal information that will give the person unrealistic hopes or bad

news that can cause sadness.

Coffee cup reading adds an extra excitement while you enjoy your

favorite cup of Turkish coffee. You can find coffee cup readers in many

Turkish coffee houses today. It is a tradition that has spread beyond

Turkey to other parts of the world where Turkish coffee houses have

been established. So if you find a pleasant Turkish coffee house nearby,

step in to enjoy an amazing cup of Turkish coffee and have the rare

opportunity to peep into your future.
