What are Esse Nuts?

Esse nuts are small to medium sized pieces of anthracite, a very hard and compact form of coal that’s been used since it was discovered in the early 19th century. Anthracite contains up to 98% carbon which is the highest carbon content of any coal. It also has the fewest impurities making it a very clean burning and popular choice of smokeless fuel. Anthracite has the highest energy density (energy stored per unit volume of coal) of any form of coal apart from graphite.

While anthracite is graded in different categories, Esse Nuts from are made from deep mined, high-grade Welsh anthracite. As well as being more dense and pure than other forms of coal, anthracite has a much lower moisture content.
