Some of my house plants Thrive on coffee. My flowering cactus adores coffee in the spring. I use it in my gardens and like I said, some like it and respond well. But none take it hot, right out the pot so if it’s weeds, scalding hot coffee, tea or water gets them headed in the right direction. I have no facts on sewer rats and coffee or the bacterial lifeforms and coffee. So drink up and lets see if the EPA is concerned enough to grant some money for a study.Thank you curious person.

I've heard of doing that, but you're not supposed to dump anything down the drain, except thin liquids.Or, you'll clog up the drain. Now, if you're talking about a garbage disposal, you can dump coffee grounds down there, but not dandelions like my sister-in -law did, and not corn husks, like my freind's freind did. Garbage disposals take a lot of abuse. When we first moved into an apartment, the maintainence man found that someone had put little pieces of concrete and paint chips down the disposal. What's wrong with the garbage can.? Toilets take alot of abuse too. People think they are wood chippers, or garbage disposals.

From one of several thousand resources on the subject:
Subject: RE: Coffee Grounds Down the Drain.
1). If you do, a little at a time with plenty of water.
2). Wasting of water would be the concern here if you conserve it, or are paying for water usage (being out in the "country" I have a well, so this doesn't affect me, but the coffee grounds would affect my septic).

I know people who get used coffee grounds by the 5 gal. bucket from Dunkin Donuts for their gardens and compost bins. If you ask them they will save them for you to pick up on a regular basis, but you must follow through and take them. Earthworms love them, and in turn their castings benefit your soil and plants.
