Coffee mystery

Postby jennyffer777 » 05 Mar 2010, 04:06

Not sure my topic fits here, still haven't found more appropriate place for it :-)
Do you believe coffee serves as a kind of foreteller? I know Turkish people believe that and use coffee grounds to read their future. And this tradition has become so popular through the world, it is especially popular among fortune-teller and their adherents. People read the leaves even home so you can say everyone can do it nowadays :))
And I do think this tradition is closely tied to the culture as it goes back from ancient times and became a kind of of visiting card of such nations as Turks, Gipsies and others.....
What's your thought? Is this a culture as a way of behaviour and way of life or it something else and I'm wrong?

mmmm.....never did this before and don't understand how people can read someone's future and what useful some coffee grounds are able to tell anyone?

yes, I trust it only when the fortunetelling is made by a professional (means talented) fortune-teller
I make serious coffee - so strong it wakes up the neighbors

I don't believe any of these misteries or fortunetellers; and coffee divination adds to my list. What else can I say? I think nothing more :-)
