Coffee Ground Compost

Coffee Ground Compost


Coffee grounds are very good for the soil and a perfect medium for plants to grow in. Worms are attracted to them so you can also use them in vermiposting situations if you want.

Coffee grounds are often said to be acidic but most of the acidity is removed in the brewing process, so used grounds are essentially neutral. Any residual acidity will be buffered when composted with other materials.

There are many sources of coffee grounds including coffee shops that give away their spent grounds.
