Default Struggling with coconara's

Hey guys,

I'm in the UK and just started getting into shisha. Recently bought a KM 28" Cafe hookah and picked up some coconara's from here:

I'm using a large shallow egytian bowl, 3 cocos and Al Fakher tobaccos but I'm getting very weak smoke and not much flavour.

I have to use a gas stove to light the coconaras, which get fully ashed/red in about 10-15mins.

After about 5 minutes I have to turn the coals over as they go black (the side touching the foil).

Do I need to just be keeping the coals heated for longer or is there something else wrong? I have used swift lite quick lights which gives nice clouds but taste rank!
