Have you ever considered visiting a fortune teller to read your fortune from coffee grounds? Now that's not necessary, because you can look at it yourself?

Coffee grounds reading is a form of divination in which the patterns left by the coffee grounds in the cup are interpreted as symbols that reveal information about a person's future or current life situation. It is a form of divination often associated with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures, but is not considered a scientific or reliable method for predicting the future.

In the traditional tasseography, as coffee grounds reading is called, it is common for the person doing the coffee grounds reading to turn the cup over before reading the patterns left behind.

The cup is turned on the saucer, and then it is checked, what shapes or symbols are formed by the sediments. Turning the cup is said to help disperse the sediment evenly, making it easier to interpret the patterns. Some also believe that turning the cup helps activate the divination powers of the coffee or tea leaves.
