Therefore, next time you reach for the coconut, do not worry on how to open it, for we have prepared a tips that will maximally facilitate and give answers to all questions about opening the coconuts.

Bottle opener

The first tool that will be required to open a coconut is a simple bottle opener.

To drain off the coconut water, you will probably need to expand the holes take a little bit, and you can do it with the help of a screwdriver. Coconut water is not tasty as you would imagine it to be, but it hydrates the skin and provides energy, and therefore is very good to drink.

Place the Coconut on kitchen board as it would not be all over the kitchen and start hitting it by the side of the until the hard crust cracks. Now it is necessary to separate the bark of the coconut, and you can do it without problems. To leave us a clean white coconut flesh, mind you just strip away the brown crust that the knife.
