*Rated #1 Airbnb Experience of 2019* Turkish coffee fortune reading is an authentic tradition dating back to the Ottoman empire of the 1600s. After drinking this sweet, espresso-like coffee, it is customary to read one's fortune from the remaining coffee grinds. Per old school Turkish style, we prepare the coffee on hot sand. The grinds are then projected onto an iPad screen - via endoscope camera - allowing for a visual fortune-telling experience unlike any other. The symbols and figures inside your coffee cup are interpreted right before your eyes! These readings are always fun, light-hearted, but most importantly - insightful!
