Simran singh was only 12 when she was initiated into coffee cup reading by a neighbor while living in Afghanistan. “It took me two years to understand coffee cup reading. By the time I was 15, I was reading the coffee dregs of friends at parties,” says Singh, who started reading coffee cups in her bandra apartment, Mumbai and now shifted to Pune.
Turkish coffee reading is a practice for interpreting cup’s coffee grounds as well as these on the saucer, scrutinize the coffee dregs, and you might just see your future staring back at you: To begin with some sort of history this event started in Turkey in the 16th century. This type of coffee leaves not only thick but also muddy sediment at the bottom of the cup. If you swirl the cup and turn it upside down then the grounds will fall down. Consequently, they will leave some patterns on the surface of the cup.
The images and shapes created in the coffee ground have predictable future happening meanings.
Foretelling the future by reading coffee dregs is not yet a scientifically proven method, to say the least, but it is intriguing nevertheless.
