Java Log

Like so many people that live in cold places, Rod Sprules was entertaining himself one night by playing with fire. After compressing coffee grounds and candle wax together, he threw it in the fireplace and—voilá—Java Log was born. With about 25% more energy per unit than wood, the coffee log produces a flame that’s about three times as bright, with significantly less soot and 14% fewer CO2 emissions. Plus, by using the waste of a popular product, Java Log helps reduce mass in landfills. $34.94 for six. Thanks for the tip, Brad! ::Whole Latte Love [by MO]
