Sustainable coffee ground recycling and composting

Hirvihaaran Golf


We recycle and compost our used coffee grounds to enrich the soil. We collect these grounds in a bin provided by VG-Port Oy, who empties it weekly. Since coffee is our top product, we generate a significant amount of grounds each year.

Composting coffee grounds adds valuable nitrogen to the compost, aiding in the breakdown of organic matter and creating nutrient-rich soil, which reduces the need for fertiliser. Additionally, coffee grounds act as a natural repellent for slugs and snails, minimizing the need for chemical interventions. This practice also helps lower our carbon footprint by diverting coffee grounds from landfills, where they would otherwise produce methane, a harmful greenhouse gas.
