Right a nice review. I have yet to find a review that convinced me to switch over from my affordable exoticas, which just so happen to work fine. Until I am convinced or try them, I am stuck on exoticas. Coconaras are more expensive, and I have little money to spend as it is.

If you think about it, are they any more expensive if they last longer. Wouldn't you use less over time? I am picking up a 16pc sampler to try.

thats true, and the one thing I like already over the exoticas is that they are pre-cut.

just break exoticas in half then break the pieces after you start them with tongs, its alot easier. the cocos have a very specific taste (very very mild) but i guess i have a sensitive palate, i taste it and dont really like it

Personally i use 3 Coconaras a session, most of the time, and i go through them like candy unfortunately. They are kind of like buying from Organic foods compared to processed foods.

It could just be where i live of course. Humidity affects coal performance.

maybe, because 3 made my AF Fruit cocktail harsh, then I took one off, and it smoked nicely

I still haven't tried those yet. I've been trying a few other coals before I give those a shot. So far no real winners for me. Although AF lump coals are quite nice.

I got some yesterday and am kicking myself for not paying the extra $ at the start instead of wasting $ on problematic coals, these are all I'll be using now they're so much better than exoticas in every respect imho.

so make sure you guys post up revieews because I am seriously on the fence about these.

I need to know about lighting? Do you light these and have a billow of smoke? It is smokier / more smelly than the old (yet, undamaged) exoticas? taste? Someone mentioned they can taste the coals?

Help
