If you have a little leftover brewed coffee from the morning, there’s no need to pour it down the drain later in the day. While coffee is acidic, when it’s brewed with water the acidity is diluted significantly. And while caffeine has yet to be proven beneficial to plants, coffee is high in good things like magnesium and potassium, which are building blocks for plant growth. So pour some cold coffee over your outdoor plants and garden to give them a nutritious boost. And the leftover grounds are always a welcome addition to your compost heap.
