Re: ugh. my first exotica experience..
Some recommendations i can give are Orange Coals from Hookahcompany, Coconut Tabs from HookahCompany, Coconaras, or Golden canary coals from Hookahcompany.
They are all natural except the Canary coals, i recently was given some and they are very great coals. The Coconut Tabs are relatively cheap and light quicker then coconara, but don't last as long.
