How to collect coffee grounds?
When you/your parents make coffee, notice, that in the filter of the coffee machine, there are wet, dark brown objects. Dry them. They’re coffee grounds. One day, perhaps, you’ll get a plant. (not if you have one already…)  to keep it healthier, mix soil with coffee grounds. Or maybe you’ll drink coffee. When you’re done, coffee grounds will be probably at the bottom.
