Leftover Coffee Grounds

LoadingFavoriteAdd to favorites

Have you seen my post about making cold-pressed coffee?  If you haven’t, you can check it out here.  That’s a good place to start if you are in need of some coffee grounds. :) Today, I want to share with you what to do with the leftover coffee grounds.  Don’t throw them away or wash the grounds down your sink.  There are so many uses, who knew!

      Good morning Nick,

      How exciting! You could bag up your left over ground from the cafe and put them in a basket near the counter for your customers to take for free… teach them what to do with them, thus spreading the word. I have seen a few places do that in my travels. Not many, but a few. And to be honest, their basket was always empty because customers snatched them away! Best of luck on your coffee shop! amie sue

    Hi, thank you for this helpful section of your website to support us all in becoming more resourceful and less wasteful.
    I want to add another GREAT use of used coffee grinds. If slugs start coming around at night to devour the leaves off your flowering plants, you can send them away by spreading coffee grinds around the bases of the plants. This will keep slugs away. I love this because no body gets hurt or killed, the coffee beans are recycled, and the flowers are saved.
