    I have tried putting coffee in my roast beef for kind of a nutty flavour. It wasn't bad. I also put in smoothies sometimes for a coffee flavour once in a while. That's about it!

    yes I use it to exfoliate my skin - it works very well and gives your skin a healthy glow.  I also use it as an ingredient in some of my homemade soaps because it is naturally deodorizing.

    I have used a little in cakes I was baking for a mocha effect.

    You can also put the used coffee grinds in your garden as plant food.

    I use the grounds on hydrangea and azaleas as a form or fertilizer.

    I got a recipe off the splenda website for a chocolate cake called "Died and Went to Heaven Chocolate Cake" that calls for coffee as one of the ingredients. It is super delicious.

    I have put coffee in marinades, sweet tea, desserts (brownies, tarimisu, cookies), and like someone else stated, smoothies.

    Sure!  Coffee is a great dye as well as adding important nutrients to plant soil when disposing of the grounds.  Besides having my morning cup of java and waking me up it is wonderful in some desert recipes, like cakes, cookies and icing!  Works well for marinade on tough meat!
