15 Ways To Reuse Coffee Grounds

| 7/10/2015 3:00:00 PM

Caitlin EthridgeI drink a lot of water because I like to keep my caffeine intake down. So my single cup of coffee every morning is something to cherish. Especially in the mug my boy made me for Mother’s Day.

My husband makes the perfect pot of coffee. Very strong. (And the coffee is too! Sorry, couldn’t resist.) All those cups of strong coffee mean lots of used coffee grounds. We compost ours so it’s not wasted, but there is so much you can do.

Caitlin, great ideas for use of spent coffee grounds. Is there any other way to drink coffee than strong and black. I have limited myself for many reasons to one or two cups of coffee a day as well. However, I have to say they are 16 to 24 oz cups. (big smile) I really should at least put the grounds in the compost. I don't have too many plants that are acid loving plants. Most of my plants are veggies but I am trying to integrate more flowers into the garden area. The intentions are many but the realities are few. Thanks for all the interesting uses of coffee grounds. ***** Have a great reuse of coffee grounds day.
