Looking for suggestions and experience with doing cigarette smoke stink abatement for the small common area of a two family house.

I live in the upstairs of a two family house - 1920 victorian style - and the guy in the downstairs unit smokes like a fiend. The smoke doesn't really drift into my part of the house, but the foyer and stairway common area STINK of smoke. I think a full-on air purifier in the stairway area might be overkill, plus I'd have to find a way to mount it in the stairway (and probably have to run a new electrical outlet), so I'm looking for suggestions for things that have worked for a small space like this.
This is sort of a repeat of this
question from last year. I can't really complain to the landlord since I am the landlord. Has anyone tried the ground coffee trick? Does it work? I don't really care for the smell of most consumer-grade "air fresheners".
