There's also the cube Coco Nara Charcoal which burns at a slightly hotter temperature than the flats and increases the burn time. Keep in mind that both of these shapes require a charcoal burner. The quick-light options for Coco Nara coconut charcoal are shaped like discs and use an accelerant for light. But these also offer a lower level of heat.
