Benefits of Coffee Chaff
What the heck are we talking about here? Well…Coffee bean chaff is a waste product of the roasting process. It’s basically the skin of the coffee bean on the outside that comes off every batch of green coffee that’s roasted. So! Why would you wanna keep that and not dispose of it? We would love to let you know!
Many organic gardeners use coffee chaff for adding additional supplement to their vegetables. This also has major benefits to warding off pests, slugs and snails reducing damage they might cause to your plant life.
Even though sawdust is inexpensive and readily available, it’s not the best material to use in your chicken coop. Pine shavings, straw, chopped cardboard, ground corn cobs and coffee bean chaff are much safer alternatives. Coffee bean chaff is the least expensive and readily available at coffee houses.
One thing is for certain, that salt poured on snow and ice melts the stuff quick. But did you know that coffee chaff works really well too. Next time you have icy conditions on your steps or walkway, spread some chaff around and run across that slippery surface to discover how quick it shows results.
