What to do with the coffee grounds?


I can read your future: more beautiful plants and lush skin!

You only need to stop by a coffee shop in any city in the world to see that the planet loves this bean. With the large amount of coffee consumed daily, it is encouraging to learn that there is a productive use for all that waste.

Exterior decoration of your garden or orchard.

The next time you make a cup, save your coffee beans and add them to your garden soil. Aesthetically, coffee grounds can be used to make elegant black spotlights in flower gardens as the intense blackness of the coffee grounds provides a beautiful contrast to the colorful flowers and green herbs. Even for best results, mix with other forms of organic mulch such as tree bark, clay scraps, or white river rocks.

Compost or natural compost.

Ground coffee as a compost addition: adding coffee to your compost A worm bin is a great idea as it creates a nitrogen-rich soil result, and gardeners swear coffee-fed worms will flourish. Researchers have also found that coffee grounds help maintain ideal temperatures in compost piles. This allows the compost to remain free of potentially harmful pathogens that later affect delicate seedlings.

Coffee as organic fertilizer: As a fertilizer, used coffee beans are slightly acidic and full of nitrogen, a mineral that helps the growth of vegetables and plants. You can also sprinkle some of the used soil around flowers and vegetables before watering them for a slow release of nitrogen.

Ground coffee is particularly good for tomato plants, which thrive on nitrogen. It also creates a naturally acidic form of bacteria, which stimulates the growth of acid-loving plants such as tomatoes, roses, blueberries, and evergreens.

According to the Composting Council of Canada, adding coffee to the soil not only increases the nutritional value, but it also improves the texture and fertility of the soil and helps attract earthworms.

Coffee as a pesticide.

The ground coffee grounds or residue has the added benefit of deterring slugs and snails from eating vegetables and flowers. There are also other organic pesticides that can also deter certain garden pests.

Try buying unbleached compostable coffee filters, as this makes it easy to dump both grounds and filters in your compost box.

Yes, the coffee grounds can be accumulated in a jar together with a little unrefined sugar and a mix with a little coconut oil. It is an excellent exfoliator for your skin when bathing, helping to not only remove dead cells, but also allowing new ones to shine. The coconut oil will help to nourish and moisturize the skin giving that lush and natural effect. With this you not only recycle but also avoid buying scrubs with microplastics that harm the environment and prevent coffee residues from being mixed in the landfill with other wastes that can be recycled.

It is also a good excuse not to use coffee machines with non-recyclable capsules.
