It’s Wednesday afternoon and at the tearoom «Evadate» there begin to arrive groups of friends, mother and daughter, co-workers … all asking for coffee and a number for Alicia to read their coffee grounds. «Do not become obsessed, it is best taken as a game, you can not determine the decisions of the people who sit here,» she says.
Alicia explains that she has always had a «sensitivity» to certain subjects which her father loved and had taught her and her sister. She has read a lot about the meaning of coffee grounds and for many years has been doing it. «I stil have clients from the bar where I worked before and where I started doing it, they still call on me» and adds that usually mostly women are interested. With a cup she explains where we can see the past, present and future and how the lines or coffee stains show our state of love, work and health. Alicia says that the future is uncertain, but she sees things that have happened or are happening at the time.
We see how she takes her time with each person. Young and old are interested in this practice, some out of curiosity, others because they believe it is right … a group of friends have decided to «try» for the first time they, they say that what motivated them was that one of the them in particular had a special interest. «In these time , we like to see a little light,» said one. «I think they are general things that say who can marry me or the others,» said one of the girls. » She has been right with me in many stories my life, I have been identified with what she says,» says another. «I came with no expectations, just out of curiosity,» said a fourth.
For one reason or another, more or less satisfied, the point is that Alicia has not stopped receiving people sitting at a table in the tearoom all afternoon. A coffee, the uncertainty of what the coffee grounds will say and sharing with your friends an afternoon in a cozy atmosphere, is priceless!
