Coffee is an essential ritual for many of us as we awaken to a new day. The art of making or drinking coffee has become our modern-day mantra, spiritual coffee experience. It is where we find the divine in the mundane. Coffee is a fantastic way to tune into our intuition and decipher messages about our past, present and future. Let’s use coffee for life meaning.
In this article, we will discover the spiritual origins of coffee, how to use coffee as a form of divination and my favourite type of coffee.
Spiritual Coffee: A History
Coffee is a miracle elixir, with all the positive news about its health benefits over the last few years. It was Halloween, and we were left wondering if the coffee was more than magically delicious.
Furthermore, Coffee was first mentioned throughout history. Its evident energizing qualities were immediately recognized. The Archangel Gabriel promoted coffee as a remedy for narcolepsy and plague, coffee being sent from heaven-sent as a divine cure.
Coffee Grounds For Divination
Before starting any divination work, you must choose the right kind of coffee. The grounds were traditionally ground first, then placed in a cup. Simple ground beans from a regular coffee maker will not produce suitable grounds for divination work. Additionally, Get a French press or an ibik if you plan on reading coffee grounds daily.
Lastly, for casual coffee ground readings, you could also use the remnants of your cappuccino. These can be you in the same way as the reading described below.
The fortune-telling and coffee-reading experience includes trying to read the vibes of your subject.
The reader will hold the cup (fortune teller). One hand will be used for the cup and the other for the subject. The fortune teller will search for images on the grounds of coffee just as you would see pictures and clouds in the sky.
Some readers may see a tree that looks like the subject’s “tree of Life.”
Root structures can be used to indicate family relationships. If the tree is too slanted towards one side, it could mean that the subject has placed too much importance on one aspect of their lives.

Firstly, trust and use your intuition, there is no set meaning for everyone, and we should always draw on our own life experiences and associations. Lastly, below is a handy A to Z of divination symbols you can find inspiration for your readings.

Turkish coffee is thicker in texture and richer in flavour. Turkish coffee offers a unique taste experience with its consistent flavour and consistency.
