coffee as soil amendment

17 years ago

Why is it that some go bannanas over coffee grounds as a soil amendment?

Am I missing something?

I mean sure, they make a fine amendment and using them for the soil is preferable to using them in a landfill, but it seems some actually take the trouble to go to starbucks or elsewhere to get a free, small bag of them.


Is there any way in which coffee grounds offer more benefit to anything than say grass, leaves, grains purchased in bulk, manures etc. In other words given the ease of obtaining large quantities of many other excellent soil amendments, why are some going through the trouble of aquiring coffee grounds in rather small quantities?
