Using Coffee Grounds More Than Once

February 3, 2009

A coffee filter full of used coffee grounds.Money is tight, and we love our morning coffee. I found a way to save 50%. I find the brand name on sale, and buy the darkest roast (look for scale on tin). Brew a full batch of coffee, pour into pitcher. Then fill reservoir with water again. Using the same grounds, brew again.


When finished, pour in with first batch. Mix. Now you have 20 cups of coffee for the cost of 10. Remember: dark roast and regular strength cost the same! I strongly suggest using brand name (there is a difference in this case), and you can also use coupons! Live Thrifty!

This month's Consumers' Reports magazine gave 8:00 coffee their 'Best Buy' rating. I buy it at the local grocery store, though different stores have different varieties...I like strong coffee and find the Italian Roast does well for a thrifty price. Try the regular blend and if it's not to your taste, move up to the French or Italian (darker/more bitter) roasts. They also make hazelnut and vanilla flavored coffees. Whole bean or ground.

To save money on coffee, I get three 12 oz. cups from one and one half scoops of grounds. I use a reusable conical shaped 4 coffee cup filter in a wide soup/coffee cup and slowly pour boiling water into the first cup with one scoop of grounds.

Coffee grounds that are left in the maker day after day and reused can mold can make you ill. This is a page about warning: don't reuse coffee grounds day after day.

It is possible to to use coffee grounds more than once? How should they be stored? Do I need to add any extra fresh grounds to them when I use them a second time?
