Welcome to Kilimanjaro
Tanzania supplies creamy, sweet vanilla with buttery, spicy and woody undertones. The tropical climate and fertile soils are ideal for the Vanilla Planifolia species, the more commonly-known Bourbon-Madagascar variety rich in natural vanillin compounds. Whole pods of the genus Planifolia are the thinnest of the four types of vanilla, but packed with a flavor punch.
Tanzanian vanilla beans add sweetness and a delicate fragrance to baked goods and enhance smokey sauces, tangy vinaigrette, spicy curries, rich stews and creamy seafood dishes. The extract beans are perfect for vodka- and white rum-infused vanilla extract and homemade vanilla paste and sugar. The Grade A gourmet vanilla beans are long and slender and have a high oil and water content. They pair perfectly with sweet and savory dishes, health drinks, coffee and cocktails.
Vanilla is a fledging addition to the country's agricultural industry and provides a key source of income to rural farmers who have relied on cash-crop coffee farming for decades. The flowering orchids are cultivated in Kagera, Morogoro and villages lying in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro. The northeastern regions of Tanzania are rich with fertile volcanic soils and enjoy plentiful rainfall.

Beautiful juicy, smell good beans for my vanilla.
First time trying Tanzanian beans, they were moist, plump and smelled great. Native is good company to do business with!!
Beans were great quality and size and smelled amazing! Using to make extract and can't wait!
Absolutely the most beautiful smelling beans I have ever received! Smell like melted butter and brown sugar with a light chocolate undertone. Vacuum sealed and arrived very fast. This bean is definitely a new favorite.
These beans are long and lovely! They smell like heaven. They got lost in the mail for awhile but did arrive in good shape. They weighed more than the promised 2 ounces, even after the longer delivery period! Half are soaking in Vodka, the other half are in Rum. I can't wait till they're ready!
