Coffee is certainly a go-to when it comes to a beverage that will put a pep in your step, but it also gets used in so many everyday DIYs. To celebrate this magic bean, we’re launching our first-ever Coffee Speed Challenge! Any project that uses coffee in any way is eligible.

Coffee grounds in the garden? Take pictures and enter it to the speed challenge!

Made a woodworking stain from espresso? Document your steps and submit your entry!

Don't forget, all culinary entries are also eligible! Now, brew a pot of coffee and get to work!

The Coffee Speed Challenge is closed.

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Jan 6, 2020 and Jan 20, 2020 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Coffee Speed Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
