PDX Coffee Shop- Large
PDX Coffee Shop is usually in our #2 or #3 spot for best selling candle. (Except at Ramadan markets, where we always sell out). When we moved to Portland from the East Coast, I noted that there are a plethora of espresso machines... but also an abundance of bear claws and pastries and sumptuous muffins... I tried to capture this with a blend that mirrors the experience of sitting in a cafe, writing, people watching, and sipping your quad shot oat milk latte.

Like all of our tin candles, this is a vegan, paraffin free coconut wax blend candle. The cotton wick is lead and zinc free. Our premium fragrances are phthalate free, paraben free, and there are no Prop 65 ingredients. There is an eco-dye from renewable resources to give a light brown tint to the wax.
Our candles that have embeds are marbling are done by hand, so expect variation from the pictures of the photo.
Net Weight: 12 ounces

Candles preform their best when we play by their rules! Here's our recommendations:
-Always burn in sight, and away from anything that could knock it over: kids or pets, for example.
-Burn away from draft prone areas like around fans or windows
-Never burn for more than 4 hours at a time, but do burn it until the melted wax reaches the sides. If you burn the candle for too short a time it could "tunnel" and the wax will build up on the sides.
-Always trim your wicks to 1/4 inch before lighting. If your wick is too high it can start too soot, and burn too hot.
-Stop burning your candle when you're down to the last 1/4 inch of wax in the bottom of the container. You can use the remaining wax in a melter. On our instagram page, we have resources for how to clean your vessels!
