Other Tempe stores worth checking out are Haji Baba, A&A Smoke, and Tobacco Plus(+). The only place locally that I have found Tangiers is near downtown Phoenix but the store charges $25.00 per 250 gram. OUCH.
Yeah i thought Cafe Istanbul had tangiers but they sure dont =( Thanks for the info about the other stores though.
Do any of those places sell Coconara coals by any chance?

Glad your Cafe Istanbul transaction went well sans the old man. He's never yelled at me for sniffing shisha (he has to several other people I know). He yelled at me because I took a leaky KM hose back. He was furious and was claiming that there was no leak but there was. Also, I bought a KM vase from their store. I took in my KM Pear and KM Chiller stem to find one that fits. He takes the stems from me, puts electrical tape on them and then tried to charge me extra for the electrical tape. When i tried to get my stems back he yelled "you!!! sit down!!!" I'm 6'5" and being yelled at by an old man half my size was humbling. I had someone translate for me, saying that this is something that I already know how to do for I have been smoking hookah for 8 years.

Anyways, I took the vase home, tried it once, and noticed that the opening of the glass has a noticeable curve. I took it back, battled with the old man for about 5-10 minutes, and finally walked out of their with a better vase. I've been going to Cafe Istanbul since they first opened and I noticed he is getting more and more grumpy as the years go by.

Cafe Istanbul used to carry coconara once upon a time. I go to Nana's Smoke Shop in North Phoenix (my side of town).

There's a closer place to Cafe Istabul for CoCoNara called Memos. You might want to check it out if you're in the Tempe area- It's on the SE corner of McClintock and Broadway. They sell SB and AF there, too.

I'd definitely recommend trying AF 2 if you're a fan of any double apple flavor. I got some to try and ended up going through 200g in a week.
