In this fun, informative, and interactive workshop, you'll learn the ancient art of reading fortunes in Turkish coffee cups. Immerse yourself in the rich culture of the original coffee (known as Turkish, Lebanese, Arabic or Greek coffee) as you discover the symbolism and meanings behind the intricate patterns and shapes left in the coffee grinds - called tasseography.

Don't worry if you're new to Turkish coffee cup reading because this class is designed for beginners. We'll guide you through each step of this ancient custom so you can read the patterns and interpret the symbols and messages that appear — a unique skill you can share with others.

You'll be amazed at how an ordinary cup of coffee can reveal secrets and insights about your life, relationships, and future.

During the workshop, we'll also teach you everything you need to know about Turkish coffee: its history, the differences between this coffee and espresso, and how to make and enjoy the perfect cup!

Our teacher, Joseph Atallah of Zou Zou Coffee, will take you through the process and give tips to extract the most flavour and create the best crema so you feel confident to make coffee at home. Joseph is an organic chemist and food technologist who takes coffee brewing, drinking, and appreciation to the next level!

In this class, we explore:

  • The history of coffee and how it evolved through the ages
  • The difference between Turkish coffee and espresso
  • Preparing, making, and drinking Turkish coffee
  • How to read patterns in the coffee cup

To make your experience perfect, you'll enjoy some sweet treats with your cup of coffee.

My name is Joseph, and I started Kimberley Chocolates to produce high-quality chocolates in Sydney. I held a BSc in Food Science and wanted to make great chocolate more accessible to our community, including by combining it with flavours like chilli, lemon myrtle, and quandong (Australia's 'native peach'). Kimberley Chocolates won the gold award at the Royal Easter Show Chocolate Competition, and I started to appear in the media more often. People started contacting me to learn more about chocolates, and I realised that there is a great need for chocolate education, and that's where our chocolate workshops started!

But my passions and skills don't just stop at chocolate, I've also spent my fair share of time in perfumeries. I'm qualified in Organic Chemistry and Food Science from the University of NSW and worked for many years with the extraction of oils used for fragrance and food flavouring as well as at Unilever in the laboratory producing and testing perfume. Six years ago, I studied perfumery and with his my newly-refined sense of smell and skills in producing olfactory compositions, I began creating my own perfume. This led to sharing my knowledge and skills with others and so I began running fun, hands-on perfume making classes in Lilyfield.

My teaching style is playful and fun, and very hands-on - the more sampling and laughing that happens, the better!
