 Our beans are triple inspected throughout the beans journey. 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.

Excellent service, quality vanilla beans

I've been ordering from VBK for several years now and have never been disappointed. Always fast shipping, and excellent quality vanilla beans (and they have other stuff, too!). Highly recommend!

These Ecuadorian beans were superb!! The aroma intoxicating!

Plump , oily fragrant beans!!


New to product seemed ok


Top notch beans! Oily and plump with good length. These are going to make an amazing extract.


The smell is amazing. I made a half batch of paste for the first time and it turned out awesome. Now to wait a month for it to set and age.


Beautiful big moist beans. These will make amazing vanilla!!


Such a great deal! Not my first order from this company! Definitely one of my favorite places to shop.

Lovely beans

Just got my co-op ordee of Ecuadorian beans. They smells wonderful and look plump. Ill make some vanilla extract with them soon. I do lile that a free label was included with the co-op ordee. However, the magnet was unnecessary as I already have one from my last co-op order. I do hope its not included in every co-op because I won't know what to do with these magnets, one is enough.
