While in Copenhagen, we made an unexpected friend; Christian Bust. He just opened a wonderful restaurant on Blågårdsgade that serves mind blowing, locally sourced foods and a great pour over using Coffee Collective roast.
So, there is a tradition in Iceland regarding coffee drinking and the telling of fortunes. Of course, Sam
and I were very intrigued, and asked everyone we met if they knew someone who could perform such an act. At Kaffismidja, Sonya was kind enough to give us a demonstration of the technique. Apparently, Sam is going to have a baby soon...(circle at the bottom of the cup).
We managed to find a woman who was the real deal. This is how you do it:
1. Drink a black cup of coffee.
2. Turn the cup over and circle it around your head three times, and then draw a cross in front of you with the mug, while blowing on it.
3. Afterwards, turn the cup upside down.
4. Allow the sediment dry.
5. Let fortune telling ensue.
6. Then, make sure that you drink some other liquid out of the cup in order for the fortune to come true.
