I thought this was a fun take on an old technique for making fire lighters.

Be sure to enjoy your next camp fire coffee !

Egg carton
Cotton wool
Wax
Used, dry coffee grounds

I added layers of cotton wool and coffee into each cup of the carton:
- Cotton wool, Coffee,
- Cotton wool, coffee,
- and finally cotton wool on top:

With the layers in place, I'm pouring wax on top:

Finished product!
With the cotton wool on top, its easy to fluff up and light.

Once lit you do get a (slight) coffee aroma …. or perhaps that's just wishful thinking ...
