Default Re: Coconare - Overhyped

I agree with you. CocoNara's got a big push when the whole Exotica bad batch incident happened. All of a sudden the people that used to love Exotica's ran to CocoNara's, and some never looked back. I have tried Exotica's and CocoNara's and I prefer Exotica's. CocoNara's ash is weird, kinda like sand. Also I hate having to flip a coal so it doesn't start going out and giving a bad taste to my shisha tobacco. For my Egyptian clay bowl the heat they give off is either not enough or too much. 1 coal gives wispy smoke that's barely hot enough and 2 coals scorches the tobacco in 10 minutes. I do want to say that I'm still using Exotica's that were purchased from the original batch. When I run out of this precious supply I will wander around looking for a new coal. My first purchase will be Exotica's and if they aren't as good as I remember I will look for something other than the over priced, over hyped CocoNara's.
