You don't have to have billions in your bank account to feel like an unadulterated coal baron. At least not among the shisha lovers. Plus, you have the choice between eco-friendly natural charcoals and easy-to-burn Rapidly Inflammable Charcoals.
The advantage of the RZU is that you do not have to wait long for the coals to heat up to the desired temperature. Just take the lighter and the quick ignition mixture takes care of everything in seconds.
On the other hand, coconut or bamboo coals last longer and have no effect on the taste of the tobacco. The flame of your lighter won't do the trick here, though, and you'll have to look for a charcoal burner. You know, everything has its pluses and minuses.
