Beyond their delightful flavor and aroma, our Tanzanian Vanilla Beans also embody a commitment to ethical and sustainable farming practices. We source our beans directly from small-scale Tanzanian farmers who employ environmentally responsible techniques, ensuring that each bean contributes positively to the local community and the environment.

 Our beans are triple inspected throughout the beans journey from Tanzania 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.   


  • Traditionally Cured Gourmet Planifolia Vanilla Beans from 2023-2024 Crop
  • Average Length: Approximately 4 – 7 Inches (13 cm – 16 cm)


Storage: Vacuum packed/sealed bag preferred to ensure fresh beans otherwise wrapped in zip lock bag inside an air tight container such as a glass jar. Shelf Life of approximately 2 years if properly vacuum sealed.

One of my favorites!

These are one of my favorite beans. These have the buttery smell we're all familiar with, but also have a distinct around that makes it special from the Madagascar beans. I haven't had the pleasure of trying the extract yet because my first batch is still 6 months from being done, but I have enjoyed the vanilla sugar I've made from the bags. Yum!

The Tanzania vanilla beans we purchased were great. The price was great, the shipping was easy and quick, and the flavor was perfect for what we were trying to achieve. We will certainly purchase vanilla beans from VBK again.
