Here’s a great idea for used coffee grounds (besides my garden.)
There’s a new product working its way out onto retail shelves called Coffee Coals, a charcoal briquette made entirely of spent industrial coffee grounds. Through a guarded, proprietary process conducted in a facility in West Lafayette, Ind., grounds are transformed into charcoal that contains no petrochemical additives or industrial binders. The coals are bound instead using a natural, edible binder, and because they burn hotter than conventional coal, only two pounds of coffee coal is required to heat a standard backyard grill as opposed to 3.5 pounds of the conventional counterpart, the company says.
