Not what I expected


When I saw "coffee" firestarter I thought it would smell remotely like coffee. It doesn't at all, it's almost kind of a sickening perfumey smell. I bought it sort of as a fun novelty thing for camping but it's really kind of overpriced for what it is.

We have a firepit on our patio and my husband is always looking for little stcks to use to start the fire. This product is so clean and easy to use.....and the scent is delightful!

Not fragrant in wood stove


We were really excited about these because both my husband and I love the smell of coffee but are not coffee drinkers. We use a wood stove in our home and we've used half of the pods now and none of them have given off a coffee scent. While still in the package, they smell a little like coffee but we couldn't smell anything while they were burning. They typically started the fire well as they last a long time, but I can buy regular fire starters to do that.



Maybe would try the other scent


This smells nothing like coffee, it smells like sugar or maple syrup only.

Great Gift But Packaging Was Torn


I ordered two and the packaging on one arrived ripped. This was unfortunate because they were birthday gifts for my dad and brother-in-law (avid campers and coffee drinkers). Have not heard if the gifts have been used yet.
