Since its discovery, coffee has had a large increase in its consumption, nowadays those who do not usually drink a cup of it, whether at home, at work, coffee is present at the table of many. By the time coffee was born, we know that real wild coffee was born in the interior of Ethiopia. This work was developed from February to October 2019 in the city of Manaus-AM. For the elaboration of the vegetable garden an area was delimited in the urban area in the north of the city, and parallel to this measuring 1x1,20 m was composted using the coffee residues. Instead of disposing of it through the sewage system, which harms both residential plumbing and the sewerage, because the accumulation of sludge in the pipes generates fungi and damages the PVC pipes. Coffee grounds are a product with great potential for use in vegetable cultivation, it is a great outlet for mainly domestic reuse offering an outlet for reuse and avoiding inappropriate disposal.
