Yes, coffee grounds are good for the garden. Some people add them to their compost, others use them for vermicomposting (composting with worms) and others use them straight into the soil. All are great ways to use them.

They are good for all plants. Acid loving plants do best with unwashed grounds, but rinsing them makes them ok for all plants.

How you use them is really a personal preference. Here is an article on using them in the garden that will help you decide which methods are best for you.:
