Topic: OT: composting (20 msgs / 405 lines)
1) From: reneandarnold
Never posted before.  Roasting for about three years.  I generally use a coffee press for my 
daily dose.  I also am a long term devotee of compost.  My question is: has anyone have a simple method
of collecting the grounds from the press? I'm Arnold Gilmour, AKA Ace Sawbuck, a nickname that predates
the coffee purveyor.

Even here in the concrete jungle of Chicago there are neighborhoods  
like mine with lawns, backyards and gardens.  The other day, a local  
news show ran a story on consultants who counsel households on how to  
reduce the amount of refuse that ends up in the garbage can (and  
eventually the waste plant and landfill).  They seemed on a mission to  
get people to stop putting vegetal waste into the trash or down the  
disposer drain.  I already separate my recyclables into plastic, glass  
and aluminum (I put the bags of aluminum out in the alley for street  
people to redeem for spare change) even though Chicago has abandoned  
its perfunctory blue-bag recycle program (in which EVERY one of these  
recyclables went into the same blue trash bag for workers to separate)  
in favor of one where we just dump it all into a blue recycling bin  
next to our garbage bins.  (I don't recycle newspapers because we  
don't read them--we read online versions and take magazines to my  
husband's office and hospital clinic waiting rooms).
So one of the things I picked up at Sur La Table yesterday was a  
vented, filtered compost can for my kitchen. (They didn't have a  
larger container or frame for the garden, but sometime this week I'm  
sure I can find one at the garden dept, of Lowe's or Home Depot).    
Now, I know not to put anything toxic or of animal origin into the  
can; but are coffee grounds and chaff safe to compost?

Hi Sandy,
Absolutely!  Coffee makes for great compost (high in nitrogen).  It
acidifies the soil slightly and so works especially well on
Rhododendrons and roses.  If you have some pink hydrangea you can turn
them blue by using compost from coffee.  If you are worried about
making your soil too acidic you can supplement with some lime (not the
fruit).  If you had newspaper or leaves you could add it along with
the coffee grounds (shred the newspaper).

Yes, coffee waste is great. However worms do not digest coffee.
They'll consume just about everything else, though. Lea and I just
redesigned our compost to two bins and I'll be building a nice cedar
enclosure for it in the spring.
We also have one of those cans. It makes a pretty good knock box, too.

Hey Sandy,
Below is a post from this last summer:

Subject: coffee grounds in your compost
To: homeroast 
Hey All,
There have been various threads over the years about adding coffee grounds
to your compost, or using them directly as a soil amendment.  Here's an
article from the OSU Extension Service on it:http://oregonstate.edu/dept/ncs/newsarch/2008/Jul08/coffee.htmlIn brief: turns out that they won't really change the pH of the soil as the
coffee acids are water-soluble and come out in the brew.  They're great for
your compost pile; a good source of nitrogen (can sub for manure) and they
attract earthworms, but if you add them directly as a soil amendment, say to
your veggie garden, you will want to supplement nitrogen (which is true of
most un-composted organic matter supplementation) or you can get stunted
plant growth.
Best,
Kris McN

Instead of lime, I mix my coffee grounds with wood ash before adding  
to the garden.

8) From: Larry Williams
I compost all plant and coffee residue.  I have a big garden, so I have a 4 X 4 expanded wire bin covered with plastic.  It works well.  I also have a SS gal container with a filter top in the kitchen.  All works well - except there are a lots bugs and larva in the compost, but it's all natural.  The bed part is that my garbage is not so wet.  I recycle glass, plastic, cardboard, cans.

Ann -
That's what I wanted to do - but we have little sun here (I probably could
convince the
landlord to let me use some space - but I'd be battling the shade and their
dog droppings)
I miss gardening!

"...into the same blue trash bag for workers to separate"
At Joliet, right? Gives 'em more time to watch TV...
About those Hospital Magazines- I got my fill of *Better Homes and
Gardens*at Swedish and Craig from January to May, 1974.
Almost became a SNAFU Vegetarian. (They aren't but I almost was.)

Hi Arnold,
I wear those rubber gloves that I wear for washing the dishes.  Then, I put
my gloved hand into the press and scoop out the grounds into my green bin.
I do the same with my vacuum pot gounds.

Never thought to use it as a knock box, as there's a knock box drawer  
in the base of my espresso machine.  (I collect the pucks that hold  
together and gather up the rest with a shallow ladle).

Cleanup has always been my main complaint about the French press.  I  
now use the Aeropress most of the times when I think about using a  
French press.  On those few French press days, I take it outside and  
use the hose to rinse out the grounds over the roots of a pecan tree.

And that works for us, also. With just two of us drinking coffee and a lot of dried material in the garden now the 
compost pile is doing really well.
