Coffee beans in container candles


 Share

Recommended Posts

A customer asked if I could put a layer of coffee beans in a container candle. I realize it would probably be better to use embeds but wanted to explore this idea first. Is it possible to put about a half inch layer of coffee beans and then crimp the wick above this so the candle stops burning before it gets to the beans?

I would not suggest this. What if the melted wax got to the coffee beans, the beans would float in the melted wax comming in contact with the flame and catching fire.

The only safe way to use real coffee beans in a jar container would be to double glass like a glass votive in the top of the jar container with the wax and beans around the glass votive holder. Sorta like the pic below only wax instead of gel.
