A Caffeinated Candle Collection Project

No reviews yet

One of my favorite feelings in the world is curling up on my sofa in the early morning and sipping a hot cup of coffee while I have several candles burning. The scent of coffee combined with the candles’ glow makes me feel cozier than anything else. I’ve been brainstorming ideas for our upcoming The Candle Issue, so I’ve had candles on my mind. It was during one of those early mornings spent on the sofa that I thought to combine coffee and candles. Rather than make a scented candle, however, I wondered if the warmth from a burning candle could release the scent of coffee beans. I was delighted to find that it could.

To do this, simply place a candle in a vintage tart tin. I used vanilla-scented tea lights and votives. Pour coffee beans around the candle. Once you light the candle, you will notice the vanilla scent and the coffee aroma filling your room.

Note: As your candle burns, the wax will melt, filling the tart tin. To clean out the tart tins when I was finished, I froze the melted candles and was able to pop the hardened wax and coffee beans out of the tin.
