The creators of the world-famous Starbuzz shisha tobacco have crafted their own line of coconut hookah charcoal! Starbuzz hookahs offer both all-natural and quick lighting charcoal options. These coals make the perfect heat source when smoking their collection of world-famous shisha flavors. Whether you're looking for the clean-burning, long-lasting flavor provided by their Coco Buzz natural coconut hookah coals, the convenience and versatility of the Starbuzz instant light hookah charcoal, or the perfectly sized coal shape for use in heat management devices, Starbuzz is here to provide it all!
For the natural Coco Buzz coconut coals, you'll need to use an electric coil stove or charcoal burner. Place your charcoal directly on the electric coil or burner and turn it up to high. Once the bottom half of the coals are lit, give them a flip with your tongs so the other side can light. Depending on the size of the coal you're using and the power of the burner, these coals will be fully lit after approximately 7-15 minutes, or when all sides are entirely red-orange. Starbuzz quick light coals can be lit using a standard flame lighter. Using a pair of tongs to hold the coal, hold the flame to its edge until it begins to spark. The coal will begin to ignite and will be fully lit after approximately 2-3 minutes, or until the coal has turned a grey-ish red-orange color.
The original Coco Buzz "flat" coals offer a versatile, medium heat charcoal that can be used with both foil or heat management devices (HMDs). The Coco Buzz 2.0 "cube" and 3.0 "big cube" coals burn at a slightly hotter temperature with a slightly increased burn time than the flats, however, may be too large for some bowls or HMDs. The Starbuzz "Tri-Cut" and "Quad-Cut" coals offer a unique style of charcoal that is specifically designed for use in heat management devices. All of these shapes are natural coals and require the use of a charcoal burner to light. The "instant light" Starbuzz coals are "disc" shaped, features a chemical accelerant coating allowing them to be conveniently lit with an open flame, and offer a lower level of heat during your sessions.

Starbuzz hookah coals burn for an average of 45 minutes to one hour, however, this can be affected by several factors including coal shape, coal type, how often you inhale, and the overall level of airflow surrounding your hookah. Using a charcoal wind cover or heat management device can help increase the overall performance of your coals if desired.
If using the natural Starbuzz coals, we recommend using 2-3 pieces of charcoal on your hookah bowl at one time, depending on the size of your bowl and choice of shisha tobacco. If using the Starbuzz instant lighting coals, we recommend using 1-2 pieces of coal on your bowl at one time. For more information on hookah heat management, check out our blog here.
