Bio-bean Coffee Logs Review: An Alternative To Burning Wood

by Mars

Bio-bean sent us some Coffee Logs to review as alternative to burning wood in our stoves this winter. We used them over Christmas, and you can see how they fared in our Coffee Log review.

We mentioned in the video that it may be permissible to burn Coffee Logs in smoke control areas in the UK, but at time of writing and recording, there was no clear answer either way because DEFRA doesn’t have a category for non-wood biomass and fuels.

If you live in a smoke control area, we would strongly recommend that you check with you local council that it’s OK to burn these, so as not to incur a fine.

We don’t live in a smoke control area, and we burnt the Coffee Logs on our Chesneys Beaumont wood burning stoves in our living room and kitchen diner.

Another great review! Did the fire smell of coffee?

Thank you Ron. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on which side of coffee smells you sit on) they don’t emit a coffee smell while burning. That would have been awesome, but sadly not the case.

I’ve used them before. I think they are great if you want the odd fire and cannot get a source of UK sustainable hardwood and the packaging is good too but I wouldn’t use them if I was having fires everyday as they would be too expensive.

Thank you for your comment Tabula Rasa, and we agree with your assessment. They’re just too expensive to burn everyday. We’d get through a bag a day over the cold winter months, making it unaffordable for us.
