I just saw these for sale in a local DIY store (in the UK) and purchased a bag on impulse. Haven't used them yet.

Hey Matt;  Thanks for sharing !  Don't know what they cost, but what a great way to use coffee grounds ! Being near Seattle, we are confirmed coffee snobs here , and consume fresh roasted whole beans every morning. We currently save our coffee grounds to till into the garden... BUT  maybe I should build a press and feed our rocket mass heater with coffee instead of cord wood ! Let us know how they work.

The bag I purchased is identical to the one in the video.

The bag cost me £6.99. Contains 16 logs and weighs 7.9kg (17.6 lbs) - that's not a typo, it's really heavy.

They're manufactured in London (according to the bag).
