What you'll do

This is a unique and magical experience. Turkish coffee is a feast of consistency, smell, and taste. On the other hand, Turkish coffee reading is an experience you can witness once in a lifetime.

NOTE: Because of the COVID-19 situation in Switzerland, I am not able to make the coffee reading at my home at the moment. We will meet at a picnic area in Versoix (Geneva) and have the coffee reading in the open air.

First, we will talk a little bit about life in Switzerland and Turkey. I will explain the history of Turkish coffee and its role in Turkish society. Then I will start to prepare Turkish coffee which is different than any coffee in the world. I am bringing the best coffee from Turkey.

We will drink it with tasting the lokum (Turkish Delight) which I brought also from Turkey.

After drinking our coffee, the ritual of the Turkish coffee cup fortune telling will start. Coffee reading is a ritual with hundreds of years of history and background. I will tell you anything I see in your coffee cup, make predictions, share positive feedback, and give you the best wishes. Each cup is personal and unique. After the coffee reading is done, we can also talk about coffee and other traditions in our cultures and exchange knowledge.

After the coffee reading experience, you may enjoy the beautiful city of Nyon or Geneva.

I was born and grew up in Turkey. I have moved to Switzerland 18 years ago. I am an architect and also own a tourism agency in Turkey. In Turkey, drinking Turkish coffee and turning your cup upside down for fortune-telling is a part of our lives. I grew up with friends and family members who always looked at my cup to find out hints for the future. With my curiosity, I learned how to read the coffee cup and give positive feedback on what the future may bring.

Esra (and her mother) were such wonderful hosts. She took the time to explain the history and process behind making the coffee, accompanied with some wonderful Turkish desserts. Then she very patiently and masterfully made the coffee which was delicious! We then drank the coffee slowly and got to know each other. Then when it was time to do the fortune telling, Esra took each one of us (we were three people participating) aside individually and told us our fortune, explaining what certain things in the coffee grains meant along the way. It was a very special experience and I’m very glad I took part!!

Myself and my cousin had the most amazing afternoon with Esra. The attention to detail along with Esra warm and welcoming personality really made for a magical experience. We were both truly amazed with Esra’s knowledge and overall kindness. The fortune telling was so personal and heartwarming. I would 100% recommend this to anyone living or travelling through Switzerland.
