coffee is better than shit

I liked this article on composting with coffee. It's about people ("compost specialists") at OSU composting with coffee grounds. Coffee grounds, if you've never heard of ththem before, are an abundant natural resource in western Oregon. The compost people said that when they substituted coffee grounds for manure in their compost the pile heated up much faster. Is it any surprise? I'm sure the fresh aroma of coffee wakes up those aerobic bacteria nice and early every day and keeps them going all day long.
