Coffee grounds can be beneficial to your Pepper plants, but too much can lead to your plant having lots of leaves, but no peppers.
Aim for 1/2 inch of coffee grounds around the perimeter of the plant and work into the top soil. This amount should be sufficient for 2 months.
There can be other issues causing the plant stress.
