Coffee Beans

Hiya! I am wanting to do this and I'm not sure where I can find cheap bulk coffee beans. Any ideas?

    Bjs sells big bags of coffee.... Or costco. I'd just buy the cheapest one you find there... you might also want to consider putting something in those to hold up the candle, it will also allow you to use less beans! maybe some paper or a small paper cup?

    Costco, SAMs, Walmart, or the dollar store?

    Good idea Jenn! That way you only have to cover the top of the paper. Maybe you can ask coffee shops if they have any that they throw out? After a while they might get stale or something. I used to get the leftover popcorn when I worked at the movie theater at the end of the night to bring home. They would throw out like 2 huge trashbags full of popcorn, what a waste!

    We used coffee beans on our tables since we wanted fragrance but didn't want flowers. I just bought whatever was on sale for a few months before the wedding. But you can buy in bulk online too, and it doesn't matter what the quality is, because no one's gonna drink it anyway! :-) We burned vanilla-scented tea lights at our tables too. Smelled awesome...
