Tom Coco coconut hookah coals have officially landed on US shores! Made using 100 percent all-natural coconut husks, Tom Coco charcoals offer a consistent heat output alongside low ash content that provides smooth, long-lasting shisha tobacco sessions. Their all-natural formula ensures that each piece of charcoal provides clean flavor from your shisha that won't be affected by any chemicals and, due to being made using coconut shells leftover from the production of other types of coconut products, you can rest assured that no trees were harmed during the manufacturing process of these coals.
Tom Coco coals require the use of an electric coil stove or charcoal burner to properly light. Place your coal pieces 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 also light. Depending on the size of the coal you're using and the power of the burner, they will be completely lit after an estimated 7-15 minutes, or when all sides of the coal are entirely red-orange.
Tom Coco "mini cube" coals offer a medium heat, versatile charcoal that can be used with both traditional foil and heat management devices (HMDs). The "cube" and "big cube" shapes offer slight increases in overall heat output and coal longevity than the mini cubes due to their larger size, however, may be too large for some hookah bowls or HMDs.
Depending on the size of your hookah bowl and choice of shisha tobacco, we recommend using approximately 2-3 Tom Coco coals on your bowl at one time. Need help managing your charcoal? Check out our blog on heat management here.
