"Do not trust what the coffee grounds tell you, but do not deprive yourselve from the opportunity to read future as far as you can."

The art of reading coffee grounds is as old as coffee itself. Turkish coffee and fortune telling are an inseparable part of the pleasure and conversation associated with coffee. Oriental coffee is the only one letting this art to be performed. This ritual spread to Europe at the end of the 17th century when it became fashionable in Paris, from where it spread to Austria, Hungary and Germany. After the coffee is drunk the cup is placed upside down on its saucer. The person whose fortune is to be read says, "Let my fortune match my state". After the cup has thoroughly cooled, the fortuneteller examines the patterns formed by the grounds. The aim is generally to impart good news and to promote a positive outlook on the future. The shapes and patterns left by the grounds on the cup and saucer have various symbolic meanings....

Learn to read the signs in the coffee-grounds

First and foremost it is very important that the ground is shaken personally by the person who drank the coffee and then they should personally place the cup upside down on the saucer. Some people wish for the best and then touch the bottom of the cup with their finger. Then, when the cup is back in its usual position, it is ready to be read by the fortune-teller. It is a custom for the fortune-teller to say “Let the future follow your wishes” before they start to read the ground. The rest depends on what is seen in the cup of coffee and what people chose to believe in. The most important signs, discovered in the coffee, is that there is always good news.
