What do you do with your used coffee grounds?

I'm currently working on launching a property-wide coffee composting program at @fshualalai, where there are 7 espresso machines and just as many batch brewers. During peak seasons, one food & bev outlet there will go through 70+ lbs of coffee weekly. There are so many possibilities with all those coffee grounds! My hope is to have all restaurants composting 100% of their coffee grounds in the next 6 months - ideally by the end of the year.

Other coffee shops (especially on big island, but anyone is welcome to respond!):
What do you do with your coffee grounds? Do they get thrown away? Does a staff member take them home? Do customers take them home? Do you have a cafe garden?
If you don't compost your coffee now, what would help you change that? Would a regularly scheduled pick up service motivate you to keep coffee separate for composting? Would you PAY for that service?

At home, our number one use is compost - coffee grounds have a neutral pH, are an excellent source of nitrogen, and improve soil structure. There is also some anecdotal evidence that proves coffee may repel slugs and snails in the garden.

We could also use them as a face scrub. Coffee gently exfoliates skin and is anti-inflammatory! I actual washed my face with some just before this post and my skin feels amazing. Next time, I may add a drop of lavender essential oil, too.

As some of you may know the “soil” at our place is mostly of the sand variety. This summer was spent prepping the garden with compost and manure. Soon we will getting in a shipment of black earth from a local source.

During our fall plow we decided the extend the garden. It finally gave us perspective of how much we’ve changed the soil composition already! We know we have a long way to go but, we are happy with the progress we’ve made so far. .

I love walking down into the garden in the morning and eating mulberries straight off the tree 🌱💜😍 #mallowsustainability #compost #dwarfmulberry #sustainablefarm #nutrientcycling #healthysoil #organic

#organic #kale , #mustardgreens , and #collards I am growing in some trays at home. As you can see, I added #perlite and a dash of powdery #compost to their trays. #gardening #homegarden #greenthumb #agritherapy #allnatural

Spent the day volunteering @metrocaring learning about all the great work they do to stop hunger in the Denver area. The problem isn’t the availability of food but rather the economic divide. Minimum wage is not a livable wage for many. Almost all the food provided comes from donations and today our NSF team helped sort the good vs bad food making sure to compost what was bad. “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” – Edward Everett Hale#volunteering #itsnoteasybeinggreen #giveyourtime #onepersoncandosomuch #metrocaring #feedthehungry #compost #sustainability #denvercolorado #bethechange #volunteersmakingadifference #giveback

Props to @starbucks for putting out some paper gift cards with a digital code on the back! Such a great step forward from the plastic cards that are so common. I hope to see many more like this with the upcoming holiday seasons!!! I’d love to stuff some stockings with paper gift cards!!! ♻️ #wastelesstulsa #plasticfree #plasticfreetulsa #zerowaste #zerowastechallenge #zerowastelifestyle #noplastic #plasticpollutes #refusesingleuseplastic #reuse #wasteless #green #eco #environment #savetheplanet #makelesstrash #nowaste #notrash #compost #reusereducerecycle #refusethestraw #tulsa #tulsaok 🌎

So many states and countries are finally starting to ban single use plastics!! This is great news for environmentalists because we are moving towards a more sustainable future. Sign petitions that go against laws that don’t protect the environment. Spread awareness on pollution and get your family and friends involved.

Some people think it’s ok to toss biodegradable waste when hiking but it just attracts animals to highly trafficked areas and makes them get used to eating human food... so pack that sh*t up and compost it when you get home (especially if you are in a cool city like Seattle that has curbside compost 💁‍♀️)

Our Benny is growing up! (Robert he missed you today!! ). Our flock are not only aesthetically pleasing they also give us eggs and dig over our compost pile #rooster #compost #schoolfarm #cockadoodledoo #burnie #tasmania #producetothepeople

Hoy en la capacitación revisamos el manejo de la compostera, practica de trasplantes, asociaciones beneficiosas y cómo aprovechar nuestras camas de cultivo para hacerlas intensivas. •
Cultivar alimentos debería parte natural de nuestro día a día, compartir este conocimiento con maestros ayuda a generar esta conciencia desde la escuela y así empezar a crear una verdadera cultura de transición. •

Today as part of the teacher training we review how to properly manage the composter, we practiced seedling transplants, beneficial associations and how to take advantage of our cultivation beds to make them intensive. •
Growing food should be a natural part of our day to day, sharing this knowledge with teachers helps to generate this awareness from school and thus discover a true culture of transition.

We attending a Composting 101 Class hosted by the Master Gardner’s of Ventura County.
It was very informative regarding the history and science aspect. They also touched on Vermiculture (another item to add to my looong To Do List). As always, the Ag Museum provided plenty of entertainment for the little one: Grocery shopping, weighing produce, and a live chicken.
