So no nutrients and it doesn’t grow, add nutrients and it does? I’m confused how coffee is any more special than any other ground up fruit pits?

I think they focused on coffee grounds because so many people drink coffee and the grounds go to waste. Not many people are grinding up peach or apricot pits every day

It's not just nutrients.

The grounds provide a lattice for the yeast to grow on & also nutrients. The important part is the process uses industrial waste instead of diverting more useful or harmful products.
