There are half a dozen coffee shops in the hood, but if you are a gardener you can get an extra pick me up for your garden at some of them. Good Earth packages and gives away used grounds for your garden and compost pile.
In the compost, grounds are considered green materials, even though they are brown. Coffee grounds can also be dug directly into the soil, which is how I use them on the balcony, or used as a mulch. All good.
