Our beans are triple inspected throughout the beans journey from Indonesia to the United States. First, they are inspected by our farmers who have hundreds of years of wisdom and experience growing these gourmet pods. The second inspection is before bulk vacuum sealing for transport and to ensure no mold has developed. The final inspection is done at our warehouse moments before packing your shipment. We check the smell, quality, and appearance if any mold has developed a final time. Once all of these are checked, we vacuum seal our vanilla beans in our beautiful custom industrial vacuum pouch to a tight 28 HG vacuum.
Storage: Vacuum packed/sealed bag preferred to ensure fresh beans. Shelf life is approximately 2 years if properly vacuum sealed.
