However, how often does a person actually finish their entire pot of brewed coffee?
Let’s check out 6 ways to reuse ground coffee.
Who doesn’t love a refreshing cold brew on a hot day? Freeze your leftover brew and use these bad boys to give a stronger kick to your iced capp.
2. REUSE GROUND COFFEE TO CLEAN KITCHEN EQUIPMENT
Impress your significant other with this cool cleaning up trick. If your burners, grills, pots, and pans have seen better days, soak the equipment in excess coffee for a few hours. The acidity will help cut the grease to reveal a nice shiny surface.
Save your brew and pour it in when you’re making your barbecue sauce. Not a fan of making your own? Buy a bottle from the grocery store, heat it in a saucepan and add some brewed coffee. Delicious.
Mix leftover coffee with olive or coconut oil and use it as an exfoliant to remove dry skin, dirt, and oil. Coffee is also loaded with antioxidants which will help to eliminate toxins from the skin.
5. REUSE GROUNDS AS A PLANT FERTILIZER
This one’s for the green thumbs. If your plants require acidic soil for growth (e.g. tomatoes), you might just give them a little kick with this trick. Coffee is packed full of nitrogen to aid development and growth.
Pour your unused coffee brew in your potted plant and watch it grow.
Are you someone with a sweet tooth? Make a 2-minute, homemade mocha sauce to top your pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Put the leftover coffee in a saucepan and add cocoa powder, vanilla, and sugar. Cook on low until mixture becomes thick and drizzle to your liking.
