Coffee is a popular drink for many people. For some it means a caffeine kick in the morning that lets us start the day productively. For others, coffee is a ritual where family and friends get together, share, and discuss problems and worries. Almost every household has a filter coffee machine, but more and more people want to buy a fully automatic coffee machine.
But coffee or coffee grounds and the caffeine it contains can do much more than just taste good.

1. Face mask:
Coffee or coffee grounds in face masks work wonders. Because the antioxidants counteract the skin aging process. The contained caffeine stimulates blood circulation and makes the skin look fresher and younger. The coffee grounds from the professional coffee machine act like a peeling that removes dead skin cells.
Simply mix 2 teaspoons of coffee grounds, 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a mask and apply it evenly to the face and neck. Avoid the eye area. Leave the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.
2. Hair treatment
The antioxidants contained in coffee from the professional coffee machine protect against hair breakage. A coffee hair treatment restores strength and fullness to dull and fine hair. The caffeine promotes hair growth by stimulating the hair roots. But be careful: coffee has a coloring effect, so this hair treatment should only be used on dark hair.
And this is how it works: Simply prepare a coffee as usual with the professional coffee machine and let it cool down. Now massage this, including the coffee grounds, into the scalp and hair and wait 20 minutes. Then rinse your hair thoroughly with lukewarm water.
3. Eye mask
