More Proof that Coffee is Basically Magic

Here are a few surprising ways that prove coffee is the God of the drink world.



It'll make you more attractive--seriously

Coffee grounds can carry antioxidants that can help the skin. This can tighten your pores, as well as act as an exfoliating agent to remove dead skin cells.

Tip: The longer the grounds sit in water, the better they’ll be for your skin.

Coffee will help your garden flourish

The nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium content can act as a fertilizer for plants, as well as aerate the soil.

The grounds can also:

  • keep away slugs and snails
  • deter cats and other small animals from batting at plants
  • prevent weeds

Tip: coffee works best for root plants like carrots and potatoes--too much acidity can be overbearing for tomatoes.


It makes an incredible ingredient in savory dishes

"The truth is, coffee's roasted quality, bitterness, and acidity make it a perfect complement to sweet, bold, earthy, or nutty ingredients, ultimately yielding a taste combination that is surprisingly complex." -Epicurious

It's being used to make clothing

Coffee's sweat-wicking properties have landed coffee grinds as a fabric. The grinds are washed and stripped of their odor and oils, then turned into pellets, then thread.
