Default Coco naras

Ok so when i buy coals i get them in bulk. And i got 3 108 piece boxes, the 2 boxes were great. Good size and they were normal. But my 3rd box is just not as good. Some of the coals are half the size, they don't last as long and kind of loose their lite. They start turn black and smothering them self. Taking even longer to light. from about 7 mins to 10 to get red hot. And you can taste them, almost so bad its like using a QL. So is anyone else having these problems?

Yes I have had this problem with the newer coco naras they were my favorite, and the old batches still are. Coco have gotten worse and ******* hookah coals have gotten better so until coco nara steps up their game its ******* hookah naturals for me!

it could have to do with that whole drought rumor going around, i bet they are just scraping up whats left and throwing them in the boxes. i don't know i love my coconara's too but i do have a box of each ******* hookah nat and QL, so i kind of switch off between the each of them coco's one day, QL the next, and then Ch nats. i'm kind of hesitant now to order more coconara's because of the recent bad batch stories.

Coconaras, Shishaco, and CH Nats. All about the same, 2 cheaper than the other, and if you want to switch it up from time to time those are three very close coals. I actually have all 3 and switch it up every other day.

I bought my first box of Coconara's last month and sadly it was a bad batch. I have had the same problems as you guys. It takes 10mins to light, black spots remain even after lighting, and one side of the coal turns completely black and loses its ember. Very disappointing considering it was my first time using Coconara's and they were the best in the market.

I hope to get CH soon but it is a little too expensive to buy them as I live in the UK. Hopefully a UK vendor will be able to sell them!
