I posed this question to my Facebook friends,
Do you reuse your coffee grounds?
I have a 4 cup Mr Coffee because for a long time
I was the only coffee drinker, not by choice but
due to some medical issues, my husband had to stay
away from caffeine for a long while. I didn't need to
make 8-12 cups for myself and take up more counter space
so the 4 cup made sense.
Now that my husband can go back to drinking some coffee
those 4 cups don't quite make it. After the initial brew
we add two scoops to the original grounds and another four cups of
water. The fresh grounds mix in with the once used grounds
to make four cups of coffee. I use sugar and creamer so I
don't notice any difference. My husband drinks it black and
seems to think it's OK too. With coffee prices what they are,
why wouldn't we do this since we can't tell a difference in taste?
Most of the Facebook friends either do the same thing
or, if not, they save the grounds for compost.
So how do you make your coffee?
Do you use the spent grounds afterward?
