I actually did this, not the exact brand of Folgers, but an instant
coffee. I can honestly say it had the same effect of color AS HENNA
W/O it, however a very unfortunate thing, my henna was fading after 7
days....when I was use to a three week presence of most every other
design. Very disappointing. Now if this was b/c of the coffee or the
exfoliation of my skin that week, I will never know, since I didn't
see enough change to incorporate it into my permanent recipe.

However, you may have luck, but take heed to what CCJ said about
caffeine, maybe decafe? ha....
