The island country produces vanilla from the genus Vanilla Planifolia, which has a higher concentration of vanillin than beans from other regions. Madagascan vanilla is mainly grown in the humid northern parts of the tropical island, known as the Sava region. This is where you’ll find Black vanilla, the finest quality vanilla beans in the world. Bourbon-Madagascar vanilla beans have a higher-than-average water and oil content and an abundance of seeds.

The vanilla beans from Madagascar are known for their rich and creamy flavor, with notes of caramel, cherry, and almond. They are also characterized by their plump, oily appearance and their distinctive aroma.

Madagascar vanilla beans are typically harvested by hand when they are fully ripe and have developed their full flavor and aroma. They are then cured and dried in the sun, which helps to develop their complex flavor profile. The curing process can take several weeks and involves a series of steps, including blanching, sweating, and drying.

Dry Small Beans

This is my second order of the Sava Madagascar beans this month.
I will no longer purchase beans if this is the quality you are sending! Very very disappointed! I purchased 2 - 2 oz. Pkgs. only opened one. It’s just not good business .

Beans are very dry

Madagascar beans are my very fav. I love the Sava beans. Needless to say, I was very disappointed with this purchase of Mad beans. They were VERY VERY dry. No oils… just dry crisp beans. ☹️

Fell short

I love the smell of Organic Madagascar, Sava. I just can't say I love them. I purchased my 4oz package at the end of January, and processed them on my birthday (Feb 16fh).
They were not what I would expect from a grade "A" vanilla bean. My beans were sooo dry. I tip my beans, while trying to cut the tips they were so hard, they just flew across the table. Splitting them was also a big challenge. Out of the 4oz, I had at least half of them snap and break.
Not at all happy with the quality I received this time.
9n the plus side, the smell was wonderful.
I know grade "B" beans are amazing for extracting, but I also know that the price from A to B is can be quite a difference. Feeling I should of passed these up.

I love making this, it’s my third time doing it, these are also great gifts. Once you make it you don’t buy it anymore.

They were quite small. I ordered 10 beans, which usually runs close to an ounce. Will not order by the bean again, only by weight.
