With origins thought to be in Europe and the Middle East, tea and coffee readings – known as tasseography – have been around for at least a few centuries. Over time, these readings became increasingly popular, and made it to all corners of the world.
Today, among all tasseography styles, Turkish coffee readings stand out because they paint the panorama of the coffee drinker’s life in greatest detail, thanks to many known and personal-to-the-reader Turkish coffee reading symbols.
Reading Coffee Grounds
In a coffee cup reading, the psychic advisor interprets the residual coffee grounds in the cup and on the saucer. This is possible because Turkish coffee leaves a thick, muddy remainder at the bottom of the cup.
After the client is finished drinking, the reader swirls the cup, makes a prayer, and turns it upside down on the saucer. There’s a waiting period, during which portions of the remaining grounds fall down on the saucer. They leave patterns on the surface of the cup, and create new patterns on the saucer.
The images and shapes created in the coffee grounds provide information about the client. Loved ones’ and related person’s initial letters, scenes of importance, effects of the past, the path to the future, the energy of people involved, are all there for the discerning psychic reader to see.
