Mushroom cultivation is one of the efficient ways by which residues can be recycled and also improve food supply with high food quality to the humans. Cultivation of shiitake mushroom has increased tremendously throughout the world because of its abilities to grow at a wide range of temperature and utilized various agro-based residues as well as its medicinal value. Therefore the present study was designed to primarily assessing the cultivation of Lentinus edodes on abundantly available solid wastes (Coffee husk) for conversions in to foods which otherwise is left for natural degradation and also provide necessary information for their further utilization. As result revealed, Lentinus edodes was cultivated on coffee husk through yielding much of fruit body. Therefore, Lentinus edodes is one of the best mushroom that can be convert this solid reside in to therapeutic agent contain foods.
