Ever wondered where used coffee grounds end up? Usually in landfill sites where, sadly, there is little eco-benefit.

Ground and Green, a South African start-up company run by Vincent Madiboho, saw an opportunity to replace the felling of trees for fire making, with coffee bricks made from used coffee grounds. Ground and Green collects used coffee grounds from Famous Brands franchise outlets like Mugg & Bean, and converts it into coffee bricks that burn with great flames…. but without smoke!

 Fast to ignite, and long lasting, they really are excellent for indoor fireplaces…. say goodbye to anthracite and wood smells!  Ground and Green also make firelighters from used coffee too… use them to light your indoor fire or to get the braai going.
