Coffee Rinses

I recently read that coffee rinses on brown hair can enhance the richness/darkness of the brown over time. Has anyone tried this? I've read several different versions of the instructions online - if you have tried this, how does it work best for you?

    I've tried it....HATED the smell....stale coffee for days afterwards so I don't do it anymore. It did darken my hair a bit though. I henna/indigo now.

    Eeeek that sounds unpleasant. I love the smell of coffee but not stale coffee and maybe not on my head for days, lol. How long did you leave it on and how much did you rinse out? There are like eight million different methods listed online and if I'm going to try it I want to try eliminating the methods I know are going to be ineffective/smelly...
