The Art of Turkish Coffee Cup Reading

I have been intrigued with Turkish Coffee readings since 80s. It looks interesting and fun, but difficult to read. But sometimes when I make Turkish Coffee, I play around with the idea of reading, even though in my case it is likely to be gibberish.

While on YouTube, I also noticed videos about Greek coffee and Cuban coffee cup readings. So, this coffee cup readings are done in different cultures. Some people even read tea leaves cup.

I decided to display three different Turkish coffee cup readings in this post, each by a different person, to get a better understanding about this artform. Notice that each of these people read the Turkish Coffee cup different, much different from what I have seen in America. But it is interesting because it is like storytelling.
