Espresso – A Super Food – Honest!

May 20, 2013



Wonderful News!! Spent Coffee Grounds the NEW ‘Super Food’!


We all know used coffee grounds make great fertilizer and slug repellant and deodorizer – BUT! Now according to the ‘Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry’ coffee grounds are a very rich source of ‘ healthful antioxidant substances’, which could be utilized as a dietary supplement!


Apparently, some bureaucrat has done the maths and coffee drinkers globally generate 20 million tonnes of used grounds annually….


Most of course ends up in landfill…not now though… as the team suggests extraction from filter / plunger and espresso prepared coffees delivered excellent antioxidant material levels AND left the grounds for on going use as a fertilizer……Wunderbach news indeed for all you budding Alan Titchmarshes out there !


A sweet smelling success and hopefully another 20 years of youthful espresso swilling arrogance awaits us Monkey- Yippee!
