coffee grounds are great if you have coir.

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

I used my casing mix which is 2:1:1:1/2 peat:verm:perlite:orchid mix and then threw in one jar of WBS for each turkey tray and used that to do a tub.  I wouldnt suggest it but it can work

If you're making a monotub you don't need perlite, those are for humidifying fruiting chambers for cakes.

Vermiculite isn't really a substrate but you can use it up to 50% in your substrate. It offers something in the form of nutrition but more importantly does a great job of retaining moisture, and it's shape and structure creates aeration for the mycellium to spread, and when the verm is wet it gets coated in other substrates quite well.

Coffee grounds (must be used) can make a good additive to substrates. Some say it is more likely to lead to contaminations, and you may need some understanding of nitrogen levels, and PH, it may be best for a veteran unless you're just using a little bit. Theres a thread here that shows someone getting dramatically superior results using organic decaf vs regular and no coffee. It should be noted the coffee theyre using is organically decaffeinated using water.

Coir is a good bulk substrate.

Manure and straw are 2 of the most used bulk subs. Cow and horse manure are best gathered in the field but the first time I did monotubs I bought bagged cow manure and a bale of straw from a farm supply store and mixed them with verm with excellent results.

Substrates you can use: Manure, straw, coir, worm castings, organic compost, vermiculite, coffee etc

For your first monotub Id recommend something very simple. Probably 30% verm, 30% straw, and 40% coir or something like that. These are all relatively simple to prepare.

TEK's are TEKNIQUES's for a reason.  Find one follow it.  That's about it.
