Are there any herbs that do *not* like coffee grounds-rich compost for amending their soil?

I have a much higher percentage than usual of coffee grounds in my little compost area, with all the cold brew I've made this summer (NB, try this: https://bluebottlecoffee.com/preparation-guides/new-orleans-iced) . I need to repot or otherwise tend to my herbs this evening, but don't want to give them soil they don't like. Thanks so much, everyone. ;o)

Most herbs prefer lean soils. Having said that, many prefer well drained soil which is promoted by adding compost. I've attached a spreadsheet prepared by UC Davis that includes herb specific information that you should find useful. http://ceyolo.ucdavis.edu/files/141222.pdf
