Cafe Rhizae (SP0060)

Status: COMPLETED November 2011 - January 2012

This project created an innovative protocol on how to grow gourmet oyster mushrooms from spent coffee grounds. They collected used coffee grounds from McGill cafeterias and area cafes, which was used for their experimental research to grow edible mushrooms. Coffee grounds were composted at the end of the growing period, and the findings of their research are now the property of SPF and can be disseminated to any student interested in growing mushrooms from their used coffee grains.
