There is a certain magic to vanilla. For bakers and brewers worldwide, vanilla in the background adds a depth of flavor to so many recipes. Many recipes also allow the vanilla to take the foreground to become the world’s favorite ice cream. Although connoisseurs prefer chocolate in the United States (but only slightly) over vanilla, every chocolate recipe contains a touch of vanilla to bring out the richness.
Vanilla Bean Kings offers the best vanilla products in the world. With the highest quality beans, you’ll discover an incredible flavor profile and indescribable scent. One whiff, and you’ll realize what every vanilla extract you ever encountered was supposed to smell like! A heavenly buttery aroma with a rich, black or dark brown color with an oily outside surface gives a hint of the magic. The interior of the vanilla bean is where the magic is. Millions of tiny, black vanilla seeds await.
Our traditionally cured fresh vanilla beans develop a full, complex vanilla flavor made of over 200 organic compounds. The entire process takes 6 to 9 months after pollination. Vanilla processing and curing is a true art form.
Vanilla Bean Kings offer beans triple inspected through their journey to the United States. First, our farmers inspect each pod with their generations of wisdom and experience. Then the second inspection takes place before the bulk vacuum sealing for transport to ensure no mold has developed. The final inspection is completed at our warehouse moments before packing your shipment. We check the aroma, quality, and appearance a final time. After the final inspection, we vacuum-seal your vanilla beans in a beautiful custom industrial vacuum pouch to a tight 28 HG vacuum.
Perfect for making homemade vanilla extract or KAHLUA, vanilla bean ice cream, cake, cupcakes, cookies, and Creme Brulee. These beans are also a top choice for homebrewers and master craft brewers in a brewery! Bonus points for using the spent vanilla beans after making extract for creating vanilla sugar!
Storage: Vacuum-packed/sealed bag preferred to ensure fresh beans otherwise wrapped in a ziplock bag inside an airtight container such as a glass jar. Shelf Life of approximately 2 years if properly vacuum sealed.If you have more questions, check out our Vanilla FAQs for all the answers!
