Coffee Logs: full of beans

Coffee logs: full of beans

Launched a couple of years ago, Coffee Logs for woodburning stoves are now widely available online and more stove owners are switching to them because of their recycled content

Trees are better in the ground, so products that minimise the use of wood are generally good news. If you're a woodburning stove owner you may well have switched to Coffee Logs as a fuel source. Made by bio bean using waste coffee grinds, the manufacturer says they burn 20 per cent hotter than kiln-dried wood. £7.99 for a pack of 16, each log is made from the grinds left by 25 cups of coffee. The grinds used in this way generate 80 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions than they would going to a landfill site. Retailers include B&Q, Morrisons, Amazone, Ocado and Logs Direct. Don't expect them to imbue your dwelling with the aroma of fresh coffee though, as the briquettes are odourless when burned.
