Today we’d like to introduce you to Laura Keoroglian.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Laura. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was born in the heart of an Armenian family, that’s why I knew about coffee reading. It is a tradition in our culture, after dinner, we drink Armenian coffee, we turn the cup upside down on the plate, and then someone reads the coffee but I was a school teacher and I had never been interested in any esoteric discipline before.
I created my own primary school where I was also the senior.
One day, on my father’s birthday, one of my sisters came in with a new boyfriend, someone new in the family. We were drinking Armenian coffee as usual and then he looked at me and asked me to read his coffee, I didn’t know why he asked me because, at that time, I had nothing to do with coffee reading. But I took the challenge and I opened his cup.
Something amazing happened, a beautiful picture revealed to. There was a man holding a baby on his arms, and there was a woman behind hugging them with love. I opened my mouth and beautiful stories about that picture came out. I noticed that all the atmosphere had changed. Everybody was silent listening to the story. I knew that my new path was opening for me that day.
I had a lot of work in my school, so I didn’t have time to waste in coffee readings. So, I kept that practice just to do it in my free time.
But one day, the financial and political situation in my country extremely changed (something usual in our countries) and all people like me that had installments to pay, finally broke down.
Then, I decided to be a coffee reader full time. My life completely changed. A new “me” was born.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
In the beginning, it was very hard to get coffee reading as a way of living. Mostly when I was completely broke.
But I believe that when you are doing what you love to do, and you are passioned for your vocation, curious to learn more, the paths get open for you in amazing ways.
After two years doing readings at home, I barely could survive, let’s say. But one day, I was invited by the production of a very popular tv show called Buen Dia Uruguay (good morning Uruguay). They wanted to do an interview about coffee reading. By the reaction of the audience, they noticed that my job could be something different for the show. They asked me to be part of the staff.
Then, everything changed for me because people started to know about this ancient art when I was doing coffee readings to actors, singers, politicians on tv.
What do you do, what do you specialize in, what are you known for, etc. What are you most proud of? What sets you apart from others?
The way this coffee is made is a ritual that takes special care. It uses thin ground coffee, sugar and water. These ingredients are later put on water and heated, watching closely for the mix to heat without getting to the boiling point.
When you’re drinking this coffee, you should do it without any worries, just focusing on your feelings and thoughts. Once you finish your cup, turn it upside down and place it on the plate. Then, wait some minutes for the dregs of the coffee to drop and form the figures that will be interpreted.
Although this reading can tell a lot about the person who drank the coffee, it’s important to know that it’s a relevant guide to review or find an orientation to a conflict, rather than a revealed truth that will lead the consultant’s life.
We all know everything, we have all the information we need inside us, but sometimes, day to day life and external situations interfere with that inner voice we have, making it harder for us to connect with our inner self, with what we already know. That’s when coffee cup reading comes in hand: it’s a tool that allows us to stop for a moment and reconnect with ourselves.
Coffee cup reading tells us about present or near-future events. We can see from the beginning the consultant’s actual conflict, without the need of sharing even a word about it. Since it makes the consultant reconnect with its inner self, it helps it to think about its current life situation, why is that situation happening and how to avoid it in the future.
I travel the world doing readings, presenting my book, doing workshops. I love to inspire people and show them the beautiful side of all events in life. You change your point of view, then you change your world.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Here in Miami, I was invited many times to tv and radio shows where I was able to show what I do.
I also organized workshops with The Sacred Space Miami.
