No need to rinse the reusable filter each time once the original grounds are dumped.
The few remaining grounds won't hurt a thing when adding new coffee.

Once completely done with the coffee maker for the day, a quick rinse in the sink shouldn't matter a bit. We wipe out ours into the garbage with a paper towel before rinsing.

Starbucks gives away coffee grounds. It is a company policy. I pick up 20 pounds every so often. The only thing is they normally dump the filters in with the grounds so you have to pick those out. But coffee grounds are a great source of soil enrichment. It sure beats sending more stuff to the landfill. Also I never throw bags of leaves away. Those are great for the soil as well. It does not take much to grow really good tomatoes. A little work now and you can enjoy them in the spring.

Dried coffee grounds will make fire ants move out of their colony also.

I use a paper filter. I put the used grounds, filter and all in a bag with other "burnables" and toss them all in the fire at night. If no fire, I take them to the trash.

We have been rinsing the few remaining grounds down the sink for years. No issues with grey tank.

just be careful if you use them in the yard and have dogs ... there is a dangerous level of caffeine ingestion possible (& my dog would be prone to eating those grounds ....I just know it!). So mine go out front under the azaleas when at home

We have a dog and she has learned the hard way to stay away from fire ant mounds which is where we put ours.

I drink my coffee black and unadulterated which is why I don't drink Starbucks offerings (yuck). doesn't Starbucks use biodegradable filters?
