Instant coffee as fertilizer?

I have heard that coffee grounds are a great natural fertilizer so I am wondering if this instant coffee I have could also be used. I am trying to find a use for it.

It's regular so I will use it. But you know, it's a good idea to use things even if you can afford to throw them out. If my instant coffee is perfectly good, why go to the store and buy some other fertilizer, spend more money and have to dispose of more packaging? Thanks, though! Appreciate the response!smiling smiley

I don't have a compost bin but it looks like it's too late for fertilizing much, LOL! I am currently growing broccoli and beets, which can survive a frost. Oh and carrotssmiling smiley

I've used some mushroom bouilliony type stuff I have before as a fertilizer for my houseplant. It seemed to perk up after.
