The grounds remaining at the bottom of a Turkish coffee cup are never simply washed away. When the coffee is finished, the saucer is closed on top of the cup. Then, it is turned upside down onto the saucer and left to cool. The coffee grounds dry inside the cup, leaving unique patterns each time Turkish coffee is consumed and is used as a means of fortune-telling.
