- Phenomenal Coals for the Right Setup review by Drew
RatingThese are amazing coals for the right setup. I've used them for years, and the burn is consistent, they don't fall apart, they always light. I love that you can just keep adding them to the bowl to light, instead of needing to light each round. They're pricey, but super high quality, and the only insta-lights that I would use.
You have to use them in right situation though. They're ideal for:
- travel hookahs or travelling
- small bowls (less than 25g - 80ft, Alien, Tangiers phunnel)
- shisha that likes low-heat (Tangiers comes to mind)
I would NOT use them with:
- heat management devices
- larger bowls (25g+)
- shisha that likes mid to high heat
Light them outside, there is a slight odor when they are lighting. And while they don't do well in a heat management system, a cover will help extend the burn time (they burn pretty quick). Match them with your Hekkpipe and you got a killer travel/beach/fishing combo.

- Not my favorite review by Chaz
RatingHappy you have coconut coals back in stock.
- Best coals! review by Kate
RatingUnlike coals on the market. Japanese style bamboo is the cleanest burn. Love these coals. I have compared coals for years and found my home. Thank you fumari for not changing the coals when a lower quality would be cheaper. It's all about the quality!
- My absolute favorite! review by Kate
RatingClean, odorless and easy to manage heat.
- Utterly disappointed review by Hookah Hans
RatingWorst coals I have ever used besides instants. Lit 4 of these suckers for my phunnel bowl and was barely able to get clouds not to mention they only lasted at best, around half as long as other coals I usually used (coco Nara, prestige, etc.). They are way too small, should be at least twice the size if you expect to have a decent sesh! Love fumari shisha but I advise to stay away from the coals! Big disappointment!
- Not that great review by Kiran
RatingI was expecting them to be really good coals but they barely made it up to my expectation. They are kind of odorless and clean in a way but I couldn't start up my hookah with these. I even put two charcoals on and it wouldn't work. It took me forever to even light up the coal to begin with. I'll stick to my Three Kings Charcoals... Sorry Fumari, I love everything else about you!
- Turning Japanese review by Smokin Joe
RatingI smoke with many coals and will never truly pick one because the way I pack a bowl can vary. But don't forget about these and don't assume because they're not the "hot" coal on the scene they are somehow not a good fit. I find that when looking for a low heat option these are a great compliment. Plus I like to smoke indoors at times and they are low maintenance.
