What is the best use of coffee grounds in planting your raised beds?

We got several bags of used coffee grounds from Starbucks recently and were wondering how best to use them in our raised beds. I know they are good for mulching, but we don't mulch.

    Only use the coffee grounds on plants that are acid loving.

    Get an old lidded wood box, fill with garden soil and the coffee grounds, use it for composting all your food waste, put in damp shady area. Make it your worm farm. Use for fishing, add to garden, sell to local nursery or bait shops.. You can order your worms on line.
