I love my coffee so have saved all the jars to use as plant pots just the right size for a lettuce or herbs and the glass really helps hold in the heat.

I never put holes in maybe just some sand/gravel in the bottom so they need less water - everything does okay.

Not coffee jars but my local has started using those single serving jam jars full of beer next to the pumps. It's because a lot of the customers prefer a darker beer or vice versa and can see at a glance the colour of whatever's on that day . They still do samples as well though.
Speaking to the landlady she scrounged a couple of dozen of these jars from a cafe as they were all destined for the bin.
