What do coffee grounds do for the soil?

Coffee grounds are a source of nitrogen and can be incorporated into the soil as an organic amendment. Coffee grounds also attract red worms (also known as manure worms). These worms are considered beneficial in the garden as they consume decomposing organic matter and excrete nutrient-rich castings.

Hope this information is helpful!
