Sure, it’s a delicious beverage…warm or cold…frothy or smooth. But, did you know it has way farther uses? Read on coffee lovers, to fall even more in love with this dark java.

Seasoning

Yes loves, you can make a special coffee seasoning to go on your steaks or roasts. It’s actually a fairly simple rub:

I have yet to try this, but it sounds amazing! This same source brought me to another must-try discovery.

I must make this while the weather is cold!

Body Scrub

Did you know that coffee helps with cellulite and firming skin? True story. Just take some coffee grounds (like those still sitting in your coffee filter from this morning’s brew), and, using a circular motion, massage onto skin. I like to do this in the shower because it can be messy. But this will help increase blood flow to the area, making the skin firmer and more toned, therefore, it can help reduce cellulite! Thank you coffee!

Coffee in the Air

I’m sure, by now, everyone has seen it on Pinterest, put some coffee beans in a glass dish and set a vanilla candle on top. As the candle burns, your home will smell like coffee and vanilla. Mmmm….

To take it 1 step farther, why not make your own real coffee candle? Like Instructables here! Sounds pretty easy and cheap. A single candle can cost you $8 or more, but this recipe reuses candles you already have! Cool, I feel like I’m saving the planet.

 

Fertilizer

Finally, we can use coffee as a much better-smelling fertilizer option. 🙂  Coffee will improve drainage, water retention, and aeration of the soil. It can keep away slugs and snails, as well as be used as a mulch! Don’t freak out though, earthworms are big fans of coffee…almost as much as we are! And while tomatoes aren’t really fans, root veggies, such as radishes and carrots, react very well!
