Caps and Grounds Soy Candle


Caps and Grounds.  Celebrate your recent grad with the familiar fragrance of their favorite campus coffeehouse.  Soy wax coffee bean embeds on the surface. 100% soy wax candle with a wooden wick.

Available on backorder


Celebrate your recent grad with the familiar fragrance of their favorite campus coffeehouse with the Caps and Grounds soy candle!  Caps and Grounds is a mix of espresso, with a touch of sweetness, giving you a true coffeehouse aroma.   Caps and Grounds also includes a few embeds of soy wax coffee beans, which will burn off during your initial burn.  As the beans burn down, the brown color seeps into the melted wax pool and creates a nice latte color as the candle hardens after burning.  As each candle is prepared by hand, and in small batches, there will be variations in net weight and burn time.  The Caps and Grounds soy candle is an 8 oz tin candle with a minimum net weight of 5.5 oz, a typical net weight of 5.5-6.5 oz, and an estimated burn time of 35-55 hours.

Also available as part of the Graduation Candle Gift Set.

Burning Instructions
Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch. Keep wax free of any foreign debris. It is important that your initial burn last at least two hours and develop a full burn pool (from edge-to-edge) to avoid tunneling and difficulty lighting the candle in the future.  Never burn more than 4 hours at a time. Keep away from drafts. Discontinue use when only 1/2 inch of wax remains.

Safety Information
Follow the instructions to prevent fire hazard or injury. Never allow candle or product to burn while unattended. Keep out of reach of small children and pets. Allow candle to cool completely before handling. Always burn products on heat resistant, level surface. Do not burn around other flammable materials.

    What to get a friend who just finished her MBA? This candle, of course! I sent Amanda’s graduate gift box and it was really well received. Flowers are nice, but a candle set lasts for HOURS and makes the whole room smell like a cozy cafe. Highly recommend!

      I'm so glad your friend loved her gift set!
