Java Log – Coffee Fire Starter Log

I saw this two years ago, &&& wanted to try it. But I had other fire logs at home already, & last year it wasn’t cold enough for a fire. 

Finally!!!!!!! 

I was going to buy a pack, but it was more expensive than most other fire logs. Broken down it was $5.75 per a log, Sold seperately each is also that price, & only 4 came in a pack. I did like that each would burn for 4hours. The other starter log pack I was looking at was a pack of 6, 2-3 hour logs and broke down to about $2.50/$2.95 a log.  I was happy that I did not have to buy the pack of Java logs and I had the option to buy one log seperatly. 

I was curious if it actually smelt like coffee. After further reasearching, i found that the company says that some customers are able to smell a faint coffee odor, however that the log is made with coffee grounds because it is more environmently friendly & burns off less chemicals, as well a burning brighter than other Fire logs. 

I was excited to pay at the register & get home to light it up and enjoy the fire. 

It lit up quite easily, & did last a while. I didn’t smell any coffee odor. So for those who are buying it hoping that it gives off the coffee smell, save yourself the money, and brew a mug of coffee instead. For those who prefer a cleaner burning fire log & love being environmently friendly as well as purchasing recycled products, this fire log is a great pick.  I enjoyed the fire it made, & 4 hours is a great length to veg out on the reclyner and binge watch netflix with the family. 

I believe I will buy these logs seperatly, instead of the pack, since I am not really saving any money by buying the pack & usually I burn 2 hours logs. I did enjoy the product however and love the thought that I am burning coffee grounds. 

Don’t have a photo of the fire it produced, was to busy enjoying the warmth of it with my family.
