Our Comoros vanilla beans are a rare and exquisite ingredient, hand-picked and expertly cured by local farmers from the volcanic islands of Comoros. These beans have a unique and complex flavor profile, with rich, creamy vanilla notes and subtle hints of chocolate and marshmallow undertones.

When used in culinary applications, our Comoros vanilla beans provide a depth and complexity of flavor that is hard to find in other vanilla varieties.

This enchanting fragrance will fill your kitchen and transport you to the tropical paradise of Comoros, where each bean is lovingly cultivated to perfection.
Our beans are triple inspected throughout the beans journey from Comoros 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.
