Bulk Spent Coffee Grounds
    #11224763 - 10/11/09 03:38 AM (8 years, 3 months ago)

i feel kind of awkward going into starbucks and asking them for their spent coffee grounds, call me socially inept if you will lol. anyway im going to buy some plain coffee grinds tomorrow? how can i get the entire bag spent at once?

i was thinking of soaking it in boiling water for about 5 mins, then straining it. then finally, while still in the strainer, run it under some hot faucet water for about a minute or so. then mix it all up with the coir and be on my way... 

sound good?

Do you not have a coffee maker? I mean, how much do you really need? I usually brew 2-3 pots of coffee using the actual coffee to soak grains for future grows and using the cup or so of grounds for the bulk that I'm spawning to. I fill the filters so I don't drink the death by caffeine coffee. The mixture I use is common for coir bulk.

1 Brick of coir
1qt Verm
1 cup gypsum
1 cup coffee grounds

Then I use 2qts of spawn.

and I'll be adding a table spoon of veggie oil because of a recent post suggestion.

It could be worse. A woman could cut off your penis while you're sleeping and toss it out the window of a moving car.

Do you soak in 50/50 coffee/water? A quart seems a little extreme sine coffee mostly helps nitrogen levels and doesn't have a whole lot of nutes but far be it from me to knock what you wanna try.

Coffee grounds are tiny so maybe if you used a pillow case or something to that effect to boil them for a little. You could also just pasteurized the coir, coffee grounds (fresh) and verm together in a bucket. The pasteurization process will spend those grounds for ya.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/9289857/an/0/page/0 - Large dose's pasteurization tek... what I do.

i personally would add a cup of gypsum to your mix. Just to help the PH of the sub.

lol... Just realized that myself. Do it up man. That's the exact way I did it my first few times. I like the mixture I use now better though. I'd still suggest the pillow case to spend the coffee grounds since you need so much. Best of luck.

Walk in, buy a chocolate covered graham cracker.
"A friend said you would give me grounds for my garden- is that true?"
Walk away with a bag of grounds. And the barista girl's number, if you play it cool.
Or just the grounds.

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?

Find a starbucks 20 + miles away, and just walk in and say you would like some used grounds for your worm bed.
