Freezing leftover coffee now to add to flavor appropriate drinks later. Water plants slowly with ice cubes (keep ice as far away from plants as possible). For acidic loving plants, try weak coffee cubes occasionally (watch carefully for signs it's too acidic). Fill with water to root many tiny cuttings with small footprint. Good "lid" if tray is to organize tiny items - use transparent shower cap or leftover-food cover with elastic on edge.
