Natural Charcoal

Made from Oakwood, Rosewood or Citrus Trees.
Once the wood is reduced to charcoal, it’s left in its original rough shape. In fact, the best way to determine the quality of the charcoal is to look at it—if you can recognize the shapes of real wood, you’ve got the real thing.
Lights more quickly.
Burns hotter (around 1,000°F), so you should make a smaller or more spread-out fire than you would with briquettes.
Creates less ash.
Imparts a purer, wood-fired flavor to foods.

Sawdust Briquettes (Japanese Charcoal, Indonesian Charcoal)

Made from the sawdust of hardwood trees.
Combined with coal dust and manually compressed into their characteristic hexagonal shape.
Slower to light, often requiring accelerants such as our organic firelighters.
Burns hottest (closer to 2000° to 2100°F).
Burns slowly due to the high calorific count, approximately 6 hours.
Smokeless making it ideal for use in indoor kitchens and Robata grills.
Packed in cartons, for easy stackable storage.

Shisha Charcoal

We have the highest quality range of Hookah Charcoal or Shisha Charcoal, made from 100% coconut shell. Our range has previously been referred to as Somalian charcoal, however, it is actually imported from either Nigeria, Indonesia or Vietnam. We have excellent quality at different prices.

Our Natural shisha charcoal is packed in 5kg bags for HORECA, we have multiple grades available depending on the budget and purpose required and are always happy to submit samples. We also promise that the quality of the items delivered will always match the sample provided and we never cut corners.

In order of customer favourites, the Nigerian shisha charcoal tends to lead, with the Vietnamese then Indonesian following. 

Our range is designed to pair perfectly with all brands of shisha/hookah pipes, Including Khalil Mahmoun.
