Buying rare Costa Rican vanilla Beans made easy with Slofoodgroup

     Long, supple, glossy, and notes of chocolate, raisin, dates and more these Pompona vanilla beans are sure to please. Three to four times the average size of most planifolia vanilla, Pompona is by far the largest player on the team.  These vanilla beans, while quite rare and elusive, are not for everyone.  Some people like just plain vanilla and that is fine by us but we support diversity.  If you are looking for some vanilla beans besides what's on the shelfs of your local grocery stores, give these vanilla beans a try.

What is Pompona vanilla? 

     Pompona vanilla is actually the first type of vanilla ever documented by western explorers found in mostly Mexico at the time. Now it can be found in remote parts of South America such as Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, and even Florida. It has been grown commercially but died off years ago in favor of vanilla planifolia commonly from Madagascar as planifolia give better yields in plantation system. Pompona vanilla can be used in baked goods, vanilla extracts, perfumery and medicinal concoctions. If you are looking to try something new, give these all natural, ethically sourced vanilla gems a try. We guarantee you will love just as much as we do.

Beans were great but we’re not the full weight I ordered

The beans were top quality and so was the packaging and delivery. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because they weighed under the 8oz I ordered. My scale is calibrated correctly. I realize it would be impossible to get exactly 8oz but I usually order from another company, who doesn’t carry beans from Costa Rica, and they always tip the scales slightly in the customer’s favor. I think that shows integrity and honesty. I received another order from them after I got my Costa Rican beans from Slofoodgroup and, as usual, they sent slightly over the weight of beans that I had ordered. I’m guessing and hoping this was a simple mistake and not business as usual on the part of Slofoodgroup
