After harvesting, the beans undergo a curing process that enhances their flavor and aroma, resulting in the development of their characteristic qualities.

The Vanilla Bean Rarity Index > Tribal Vanilla

The Vanilla Bean Rare Index classifies beans according to their rarity based on location, farmer and vanilla bean type. These Costaricencis Vanilla Beans from Pacific Coast in Costa Rica are truly special, grown from only a few small growers with extremely limited production per year. Hence they are categorized as the rarest of vanilla beans grown anywhere in the world. According to the Native Vanilla Rare Index they 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.

Over time, vanilla will generally lose moisture as it evolves. If you follow the above advice, you will be sure to be able to keep your vanilla beans at their aromatic best for 12 to 18 months, so that your vanilla is still soft when you come to use it.

Experience the richness and complexity of Costa Rica vanilla beans, a treasure of the tropics that delights the senses and captivates the palate with every indulgent bite.
