Ordered 1/4 lb Tahitian beans. Bean origin Papua New Guinea. Bean family v. Tahitensis. I wanted beans grown in Tahiti, not v. Tahitensis beans grown in PNG. My mistake for not reading more closely. Nothing wrong with PNG, just wanted to experience the Tahitian bean hype for myself and expand from there. That said, the beans arrived within days of ordering, vacuum sealed in plastic. All beans were 6" or slightly longer, 9 beans per ounce. Decent amount of vanilla scent. Glistening. 2 oz were dark brown, appeared fresh with plenty of caviar. Those are soaking in rum. The remaining 2oz were drier, more reddish brown with significant dehydration. These were a different quality altogether, have been set aside and photographed. To date, I've ordered from 3 purveyors. After doing a side by side comparison, NV falls between my 1st choice and my last because mostly, I feel indifferent about my purchase. Pros: Seller's story. Price of beans. Fast and free shipping. Cons: Quality disparity within the same 1/4lb shrink wrapped package.
If it ever gets here I will be able to review it. Why it takes so long to get here is they must use the pony express for delivery.
According to your email, the delivery was sent 20 days ago but I have not received it.
This company never disappoints with their product. I am extremely happy with everything I ordered and it was a speedy delivery. Thank you!
Good quality, look great and smell amazing!
