Coconarna


Appearance: About 1in wide 1 in long 1/4 thick. Coarse and black

Lighting: You have to use a coil burner to lite these and they take around 6-7 min.

Smell: A slight smell while lighting

Taste: Barely noticeable while smoking

Duration: They have a longer life since they are compressed coconut around 45min maybe an hour with a windcover.

Price: ~13$ for 84 Pieces

Ash: Typical ash for a coconut coal, small with a grayish white hue. Its gets all over the place!

Heat: Higher heat then normal but typical for a coco coal. The sides can go out if you dont flip them enough. If they do go out good luck relighting them without the burner.

Overall: 8.5/10 Great coal for the money, they set the bench mark for everyone making a coconut coal.

Coconara (Cube Formula)

Look: Cubed piece of charcoal. Black in color.
Lighting: Takes ~4mins depending if it's windy or not.
Smell: Does have a faint marshmallow smell.
Taste: None.
Duration: 1hr 15mins - 1hr 45min. Depending on how many drags are taken or just the specific coal itself.
Price: 14.95$ 108pc
Ash: Very little ash. Ash sticks on the charcoal very well.

Overall: 8/10 The original formula was the first coconut coals I've ever used so they will always be special to me. These cubed ones however do work fairly well, but I'm just not as interested in them as the original formula. They (cubed) do last way longer and give off less heat than the original which are pluses (especially for tangiers).

CCNs, the old flats and the cubes, get a 10/10 from me. The new flats I've yet to try. I've got three boxes on the way.

the old flat ones were great; hopefully the new flats are equally great (never a huge fan of the cube, although they worked fine)

Oh yeah I knew that Stuie. Just had some cubed ones left lying around. Haven't got to try those yet though. Hope they are as good as before.

These are my goto for coals. I will always use these before anything else. I always keep two boxes on hand. I would suggest everyone to give them a try.

Coconara

These are some of the best coconut coals on the market, hands down. Iíve never had any problems with these. They last just as long, if not longer and ash way better than their competitors.

10/10. No complaints about these coals whatsoever.

too hot for tangiers, but great for everything else. No smell or taste to them at all. I like the new chronics a little bit more because they seem cooler. Regardless ccn's are great.

9/10
