Coconara just resized their hookah charcoal boxes, increasing their 108-piece box to 120 pieces. Did we raise our prices? Nope! Same price, more charcoal. (Yes, we rule).
These unique, 100% natural hookah charcoals are made from compressed coconut shell and burns up to 3 times larger than any other natural coal. Eco-friendly and clean-tasting, CocoNara coals are easily lit on a stovetop and are the natural coals of choice for many hookah enthusiasts. This are not quick lite coals, which means that there is no additive chemical accellerant. Click here to find out what's so great about natural hookah charcoal.
This 20 piece flat charcoal box contains 1 box of 120 (FLAT) pieces of Coco Nara coal. This box of hookah coals will last roughly about 40-60 shisha bowls.

Note: You must be 18 years of age or older to purchase this product.
Definitely the most popular among the coconut charcoals - I found cubic form more practicable as it gives more heat - This charcoal is good but expensive - At home I changed to Ecocha which is cheaper, and sometimes I use Titanium -
As an avid hookah smoker of 6+ years, I almost exclusively used Coco Nara coals, that is until the last year - Every box I have bought in the last year has had the oddest, most inconsistent shaped coals you could imagine and they do not burn nearly as well as they used to - My local hookah supply shop told me their factory was bought out by Titanium coals and that was the reason they are now inconsistent - I switched to Titanium coals and have never been happier - I strongly recommend against buying Coco Nara coals, at least until they get their product sorted out -
Used to buy Nara - Not anymore though - Burns too fast - Very low efficiency
Having read most of these reviews, and having used 3 boxes of the new coconara coals I can safely say that they are just strictly worse - They don't burn as long, require more frequent ashing, and they don't fit as well in my lotus heat screen - That aside, having done my own research I've learned that the original kind of coconara coals still exhist, and are on this products webpage if you read it carefully - I believe they are called cocomazaya now, I hope I'm spelling that correct, and I think I will give them a try before I right them off for good because for a long time they were the best hookah coals I could find -
I'll keep this short: I just switched from 3 Kings quicklight to Coco Nara - It's a completely different hookah experience - 3 Kings: fast, convenient, short smoke time, weird chemical tang Coco Nara: lots of ash, smokes up the room when lighting, doesn't overpower the shisha flavor, long smoke time, CHEMICAL FREE - - - Pick your priorities
I got a 20 pack with my MYA Bambino purchase - I have never used non-quicklight coals before so I was excited to finally use the "end-all" of hookah coals - Sadly I was very disappointed - I even bought the "gold-standard" Walgreen's coil burner just to light them because I have a glass-top stove - Firstly, the smell of lighting them was like aa dirty campfire with roid-rage - It stunk up the WHOLE house and gave my wife a terrible headache - Secondly, performance-wise they didn't seem to burn anywhere near as hot as the QLs I've used and produced very thin and whispy clouds from being so much cooler - Thirdly they imparted a similar taste/smell to the bowl as they did while lighting - MMMMM, tangerine campfire! Halfway through the bowl I lit a three kings to supplement and got much better clouds and taste immediately - Maybe the QC is lacking or maybe I got a bum batch, but the most recent reviews indicate to me that this isn't the case - I'll be sticking to QLs and attempting to find a home for a massive kitchen appliance I should've never bought -
I've been a fan of Coco Nara's in the past, I recently switched to Titanium coals and have been extremely happy - I went back to try Coco Nara's again and have been severely disappointed with the quality - They quickly go out within 20 minutes and ash a lot -
This product is outstanding - Works well every time - Burns forever - Only one I use -
The new Coconara is absolutely horrible - It doesn't burn right anymore and the smell will ruin your bowl - It's shame because i loved this product
I've always loved coco naras and have never had a problem with them - However I've noticed that with this new box of 120 coals they give off a really strong smell when I start to light them up on my coal burner - I'm kind of hoping that it's just this one box that I'm having issues with other wise I'm going to have to switch to Titanium coals - Also they seem to ash a lot more than the 108 count -
These were the best a few months ago - Now they are the worst in the market - I think they changed their manufacturer or something -
In the past I have sang the praises of Coconaras natural coconut coals - I never had an issue with them before - Recently Coconaras started selling more per package then they used to and now they are talking about redesigning the box - To be honest I think it's more then just extra coals for the same price or a box art re-design - Since the change, I've been having problems with the coals - They are constantly cooling off at insane rates - Where I used to only need to flip the coals and blow on them maybe once or not at all I am discovering that if I do not keep a constant eye on my coals they can practically cool all the way off - I am not a newbie to this, I've been using Naras for awhile now and I used to swear by them, but lately they refuse to stay lit - I think try changed some way the coals are made, a cheaper way - Maybe I got a bad batch, I don't know, but in the future I may look into other natural coals cause these just aren't performing as good as they used to -
We've had our hookah for about four years now and we refuse to use anything but the coco naras - But, a few months ago there was a huge shortage in my town and I couldn't purchase them anywhere, not even online - When they finally got them back in stock they were horrible - Basically the equivalent to a quick light in my opinion - I don't know what they did to the makeup of them but they were not the same - I've found that the small boxes containing 16 pieces and the large boxes of 120 burn a lot better than the medium size box containing 60I believe - I hope they return them to their former glory or I may have to give up hookah :/
I have been buying Coco Naras for the past 5 years or so - These WHERE my favorite coals and have always recommended them - - However, the past few months they have plummeted in quality - Now with the new 120 boxes its even worse; out of 120 coals, I can rarely find two that look even similar in shape or size - - coals exploding, sparking, 1 out of 3 coals cracking in half or just crumbling - While lighting the coal now they REEK, I feel like I'm lighting up a charcoal grill! Last but not least, the ash - - its no longer a white or light grey - I tend to get a dark red, or mustard yellow color - - Its a shame to see such a well known name and what USED to be the best coal around, plummet to such a horrid state - - needless to say I am severely let down with the new Coco Nara's; I will not be buying these coals again -
What in the hell did they do to these coals - They came back with a new box and whats inside is a cheap product compared to what they were - DO NOT BUY this you will be disappointed - I will be sending my boxes back just bought ten and they are all this new junk - The cuts are terrible and way smaller - I'm mad that this didn't come with a disclaimer, because these coals are not what I have come to expect - Lighting them now smell seems off will update on taste
