27 Brilliant Uses for Coffee Besides Just Drinking It

brilliant uses for coffee

If you’re like me, you’re thinking “why on earth would I need to know any other uses for coffee aside from drinking it?” Hey, I hear you! I drink coffee like my life depends on it. Considering my body is probably 75% coffee at this point, it probably does! Still, as I was grinding beans this afternoon and transferring it into a jar, I spilled a little. Gasp, shudder, coffee abuse! Rather than just tossing it, I used it as a quick scrub on my hands. Inspiration struck!   These uses for coffee aside from the obvious include things to […] Read more »
