What to do with your coffee dregs – well we at Caer Urfa Coffee put it to good use, we use the chaff the papery layer that comes off the bean at roasting on our garden, acting much like chippings. As for the coffee grounds produced after making a cup of coffee again we mix that with our compost and put that on the garden.  
It will help microorganisms beneficial to plant and vegetable growth thrive as well as attract earthworms. It’s said that coffee grounds lower the pH (or raise the acid level) of soil, which is good for acid loving plants.

Watch out for the next post where we have looked at a couple of companies that use the coffee grounds to good use.
