Guatemala is one of the countries where vanilla is grown and harvested, and its beans are highly sought after in the culinary world. The vanilla beans from Guatemala typically exhibit a rich and creamy flavor with floral and spicy undertones, making them prized by chefs and bakers alike.

History of Vanilla Cultivation in Guatemala

The history of vanilla cultivation in Guatemala traces back centuries and is deeply intertwined with the country's rich agricultural heritage and cultural traditions.

Vanilla orchids are native to Mesoamerica, including parts of present-day Mexico, Guatemala, and other Central American regions. Before the arrival of Europeans, indigenous peoples such as the Maya and Aztecs cultivated vanilla orchids and used them for various purposes, including flavoring chocolate drinks and perfuming the air.

Like other types of vanilla beans, Guatemala vanilla beans are used in various culinary applications, including baking, confectionery, and flavoring desserts, beverages, and savory dishes. They are also sought after in the production of vanilla extract and other vanilla-based products.

The Vanilla Bean Rarity Index > Tribal Vanilla

The Vanilla Bean Rarity Index classifies beans according to their rarity based on location, farmer and vanilla bean type. These Cribbiana Vanilla Beans from Guatemala are grown by a few small growers and have extremely limited production per year. Hence, they are categorized as the rarest of all vanilla beans in the index and are classified as Tribal Vanilla.

Storage of Vanilla Beans

Vanilla beans should be stored in a cool, dark place in an airtight container, separate from other spices. They should be kept away from heat, moisture, light, or air.

Overall, Guatemala Cribbiana vanilla beans offer a distinctive taste and fragrance that can enhance a wide range of culinary creations, making them a sought-after ingredient in the world of gourmet cooking and baking.

I have yet to open these little gems.
But, I have to say, they are the cutest things yet. They have such a beautifulredish oil you can see surrounding them. It will definitely make for some wonderful vanilla sugar, I'm sure. Will be keeping it separate from the other sugars when it's done.
Can't wait to get these cuties swimming soon.
