Introducing our Hybrid Grade A Madagascar Vanilla Beans, the gold standard of vanilla, sourced from the lush and fertile region of Madagascar, an island paradise renowned for its exceptional climate and unique biodiversity. These exquisite beans are hand-selected for their superior quality, tantalizing flavor profile, and enchanting aroma, making them the ultimate choice for discerning chefs and passionate home cooks alike. Upon opening the package, you'll be greeted by the unmistakable, rich aroma of our Madagascar Vanilla Beans, characterized by their deep, creamy sweetness and delicate hints of butter. This captivating fragrance sets the stage for the unparalleled flavor experience that awaits.

Vanilla beans originated in Mexico and are sun cured for months using the traditional drying method. They are now found all over the world from places like Madagascar to Indonesia to Papa New Guinea PNG farms. Gourmet Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans are the highest quality beans in the world and have an incredible flavor profile. The scent consists of a heavenly buttery aroma with a rich, black or dark brown color and an oily outside surface. The interior of the bean is where the magic is at and consists of millions of black, tiny vanilla seeds that are waiting to be scraped out.

Our beans are cured using the Mexican curing method to develop the full, complex vanilla flavor made of over 200 organic compounds that artificial vanilla (Natural Vanilla Flavor WONF) cannot properly replicate. The entire process takes anywhere from 6 to 9 months after pollination and our farmers in the SAVA region have turned vanilla processing and curing into a true art. The species of vanilla is a hybrid called the Tsy Taitry. 

Our grade A vanilla beans are ~6 - 7 inches in length and are handpicked to ensure proper qualities. There are so many recipes that can be created with these magical beans! They are perfect for making homemade vanilla extract or KAHLUA, home cooking or baking, desserts such as vanilla bean ice cream, cake, cupcakes, or cookies and are a top choice of professional chefs for making desserts such as Creme Brulee. Our beans are also a top pick for home brewers or those who own a brewery! Homemade KAHLUA or Vanilla extract is also a very popular gift and can be made using a simple vodka infusion method! Bonus points for using the spent vanilla beans after the extract making process for creating vanilla sugar!

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