getting spent coffee grounds - why is it so hard?
    #11328743 - 10/27/09 01:39 AM (8 years, 8 months ago)

i just went to a whole shopping complex and asked 6 coffee shops for their spent grounds. each one of them said no. so.. feeling rather embarrassed i left. never to try again. so im going brew me up a qt of grounds. the way im gonna do it is get a thermos (so it doesnt stink out my house). chuck the grounds in it. boil the kettle and pour it in. shake it all about and leave in there for like 5 mins or so. will this work?

thanks for any help. and dont say try again because im not gonna

cheers

as far as I know all you need to do is run really hot water over the grounds, That is all a coffee maker does. I'm sure that will work though. As far as I know you are just trying to bleed out some of the nitrogen but I could be wrong.

wow thats crazy talk, everytime i ever gone and asked Starbucks... well lets just say i had atleast 10LBS in grinds everytime.... I would only use a qt olr so, then leave the rest sitting by where my dog likes to pee on his pee pads. Helps with the smell incase he misses his spot.

The coffee shops around here are always out as well.

Just throw a bunch of coffee in a large pot and boil for 5-10 minutes. Strain and use.

hahahah yeah thanks guys. funny story actually. i posted this in embarrassment and disgust and then i went down the shops to get me some spuds for some mash potato. just my local shop. and as i was in the line to pay i looked across at a coffee shop. i thought about it for a long time then decided to give it one last ditch effort. so i put my bulk tin of coffee back (that i was gonna brew up) and payed for my spuds then cruised over to the coffee shop. i asked them for some grounds and the guy behind the counter said "used?" and im like yeah. so he went out back and came around the counter. and literally he was struggling to lift it. he gave me a half full garbage bag of the stuff!! hahaha. and i just laughed and said. " i didnt really need that much" then in a very grateful mood i thanked him and carried it out of the shop like santa.

Wow!  That sucks.  I go to a Caribou near me and get however much I ask for.  Usually I am presented with the question: What flavor! (but then again I knopw the Mgr.)

You can always buy some coffee make it then just dump the actual coffee if you don’t drink it.  And voila!  You have coffee grounds. 

Sorry I couldn’t add anything new here.

That's actually what I do.  I make a coffee bomb and soak my rye in water and the bomb.

Coffee bomb = fresh grounds wrapped in a double layer of cheese cloth sitting in the soak.  I soak for 24, simmer (without the bomb) for 30-40 mine, then PC.  I probably shoudl have been clearer.  :strokebeard:
