Coffee consumption is high in a 'normal' office but homeworkers, and those in garden offices/sheds in particular, are in a good position to actually recycle both the leftovers from their mugs and the grounds themselves. High in nitrogen (making it great for vegetables), ground coffee also helps against blight e.g. on tomatoes and possesses fatal qualities for those garden devils, slugs and snails. Indeed you can go one step further and go to your local Starbucks which has a policy of handing out its old grounds to all those who ask for them for recycling purposes.
