What you'll do

We will meet at the city center and we are going to take our coffee in one of the most traditional and classy places of the city, where the aristocrats used to meet back in those days.
We will enjoy the traditional greek coffee, made in the traditional brewing process, so as to keep all the flavour and served exactly the old way, in a bronze coffee pot and demitasse cup while accompanied with the necessary original sweets to complete the taste. This experience includes also the terminology of how to order the type of coffee that fits your taste best. We will talk about the habits and the ways of the locals, in everything that has to do with the history of coffee.The relaxed pace of drinking Greek coffee makes it ideal for social gatherings.
One of the most characteristic habits of the local high society since the old days is to tell the future from the stains and the sediment of the coffee in the cup. All future secrets revealed in the leftovers of the cup, love affairs, business goals, family affairs, money issues, anything that the person wishes to see but also secrets from the past. This habit is more popular than cards, astrology, or any other fortune telling. Our good friend Claire will read your cup and explain, what the remains of your coffee can reveal about you!
This task turned every coffee meeting into a mystagogy, and it became a daily ritual!

A wonderful and truly unique experience! It felt like meeting up for delicious Greek coffee with friends. Kostas and Claire were just wonderful and shared a lot of insights about what it means to be living in Thessaloniki.

This experience was wonderful, a great way to learn about the Greek tradition of reading the coffee. Kostas knew the history of fortune telling and was very kind, we had an issue with electricity at our intended coffee shop but Kostas and Claire quickly got us relocated. Claire has a real gift, and her reading felt spot on and left me with a really strong feeling of belief in this technique. This experience will not disappoint!
