I'm a convert

I've been making my own vanilla extract for over a decade and used to buy my beans based on reviews at a Infamous Global seller. Was never sure what I would get. Then I found this company! The beans were beautiful! Fragrant, moist but not too moist, easy to cut open to expose the seeds and each Bean was six to seven inches long. I'm a happy extract maker! 💝💃🥳

High Quality Vanilla - excellent customer service.

Slo Food group team takes great care of their customers. Received a broken bottle of Vanilla and it was immediately handled. Received my replacement bottle within 3 days.
This extract is used to make our Tahitian Vanilla Cakes!

An Industrial class bourbon type of vanilla beans 

While most people think of gourmet vanilla when they think of Madagascar vanilla, the truth is, more than eighty percent of all vanilla world wide is actually a red type vanilla. It is the red vanilla that is generally used by manufactures of vanilla extract because the vanilla beans are lower in moisture content, contain more vanilla beans per pound and better suited to their purposes.

Things to know about vanilla from Madagascar

Vanilla beans in Madagascar are harvested once annually during the months July and August when vanilla is ripe. Vanilla is grown in light but shaded conditions and interwoven directly in forests and maintained by local villages in the area. Upon harvest it takes an average of three to six months for vanilla to be fully dried and conditioned for export.

Great product, seems excellent for extract

I’m using it to make double-fold and triple-fold extract (mostly as gifts for my extended family). Since I’m doing such high concentrations, I had to cut the beans pretty small to fully submerge them. Since they are not very moist, that was more of a challenge than I was expecting. A few of them were hard enough that when I cut through them they popped and scattered a little bit. That is entirely my issue, not yours. Next time I do this, I’ll use a different internal process, and hood over the chopping area so I don;t have to chase the pieces :) . My layman’s guess is that since they are fairly dry, that I got more of the essence since the moisture was reduced. The weight of the overall product was exactly on. The extract (2 weeks in) already smells wonderful, and is darkeneing up nicely. I suspect that in a year, this will wind up being quite excellent. Thanks for a great product!

Will never buy whole beans again!

They were shipped super fast, vacuum sealed, and the vanilla makes SOOOOO much faster with loose cuts! It’s rich and dark within 10 weeks. By 12 weeks it was even darker. Four months was deeeep brownish black! I’ll buy from them forever!

So far so good

So this was my second try and getting the beans. They came this time but I am sure that I added the apartment number to my address. My mail man left a really snarky note on my package about that fyi. I havent done another order so havent been able to check it. I just got my jars and alcohol to get started this weekend. Thanks.
