Candle Making Workshop 1.jpg


It started as a date. 

We went to a candle making workshop, and I fell in love with the creativity! I love candles, and this was a chance to create my own.

As part of the workshop, we were asked, if we were a candle, what kind of candle would we be? I responded I would be a coffee candle because I'm addicted! 

After the workshop, I got to thinking about actually making a candle that looks and smells like coffee. I figured, why not give it a try? The whole thing was an unplanned, serendipitous, fun thing that turned into The Coffee Candle Company!


Handcrafted in our own kitchen, our soy candles are made with natural ingredients. I make small batches at a time, and each candle has its own unique look. 

They not only make your own home smell divine, but make great gifts for those you love! Check my website regularly for new fragrances that I discover along the way. I always have something new up my sleeve!


I also wanted an opportunity to give back, and decided to donate part of the proceeds to Harbor of Hope Ministries in Benton Harbor, MI. I used to be a teacher in Benton Harbor, and the work that Harbor of Hope Ministries is doing with the young people in the city is near and dear to my heart.
