Coffee grounds are a perfect substrate for growing mushrooms as they contain minerals and nutrients vital for growth: One man’s waste is a mushroom’s treasure!
Funghi Espresso is an Italian start-up that uses waste coffee grounds to grow mushrooms (Pleurotus), produce earthworm humus and by-products to support plants. The exhausted substratum of the fungiculture is transformed into earthworm humus by first adding bacteria and then the earthworms. The humus is used as an excellent organic soil improver for both garden and vegetable plants.
