The Exotica doesn't ash as much as other natural coals but does more so than Coconara. As for the smell and taste of Exotica, I only notice that when they are not fully lit. Once the black is gone and they turn white/gray, they have no taste nor smell and burn for a very long time. And they are square and won't roll off your bowl.
exoticas last longer for you? your the first ive heard say that. my cocos can last well over an hour usually pushing 80 mins with a wind cover

I have to respectfully disagree on the comment ion bold. Exoticas during use just end up to be a pile of ash. It's not the worst thing, they are ok for the $$$, but I don't think that's an accurate comment. The ash left after using exoticas are about the same mass as the coals themselves before lit, well almost.
I won't go into the coco vs ch though as it would be to biased. Thanks guys for discussing this.

I had to ash my coconara coals as much as my CH coals.

If you check the video in my sig, you can see the review I did. I also managed to get the CH to light faster than coconara ones.

Pain in arse to break to usable sizes. And in my experience the ashing has been a problem.

Ultra fine ash that blows away if you look at it wrong. Super messy. Up side is very cheap compared to pressed coals. As to the original posters question I'll just stay out. This thread has already crashed off course into a CH vs Coconara issue.
