Cozier fires with Java-Logs made from recycled coffee
As a long-time coffee junkie, I was excited to learn about these packaged fireplace logs made from recycled coffee grounds. The Java-Log, by Robustion Products, Inc., is the product of an ingenious discovery by engineer Rod Sprules that coffee grounds burn hotter than regular firewood. Better yet, Java-Logs also emit a "faint, sweet aroma," create less soot and CO2 emissions, are easy to light, and make use of what would otherwise be pure waste created by our coffee-loving culture.
You can pick up a Java-Log for about $3.50 at Whole Foods, as well as other grocery and hardware stores.
