Introducing our premium Vanilla Beans from the enchanting landscapes of Peru – where the Andes meet the Amazon, creating the perfect cradle for some of the world's finest vanilla orchids. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of flavor that defines our Peruvian Vanilla Beans, handpicked and crafted with passion to elevate your culinary adventures.

Grown at high altitudes in nutrient-rich soil, our vanilla orchids flourish in the unique microclimate of Peru, producing beans with an extraordinary depth of flavor. Each pod is a testament to the meticulous care and attention given to every step of the cultivation process.

Our Peruvian Vanilla Beans boast a tantalizing aroma characterized by sweet, floral, and creamy notes, adding a sublime complexity to your recipes. Whether you're baking, brewing, or creating savory dishes, these vanilla beans impart a signature touch that will captivate the senses and elevate your culinary artistry.

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 Peruvian Vanilla Beans are some of the highest quality beans in the world and have an incredible flavor profile. 

Our beans are traditionally cured 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 have turned vanilla processing and curing into a true art. 

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 Peru 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.
