Used coffee grounds from a campus coffee shop are being used as compost to cultivate gourmet mushrooms at a student farm. By composting alone, 50 pounds a week -- or about 30 percent of the coffee shop's total waste -- has been diverted from landfills. While developing the compost program, the researchers made an important discovery: coffee grounds are a great compost for cultivating mushrooms, particularly gourmet mushrooms, such as oyster, shiitake and reishi. The U.S. gets nearly 45 percent of mushrooms from China, and there is a need for more local suppliers of gourmet mushrooms, said one researcher.
Coffee lovers have a new way to ensure they are getting the perfect brew - by listening to it roast. New research by coffee aficionado and underwater acoustics expert Associate Professor Preston Wilson from the University of Texas, Austin has shown that the cracking sounds emitted during the bean roasting process could provide the foundations of an automated roast monitoring technique.
