Buying rare vanilla 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.

Plump Juiciness

Absolutely love these Costa Rican vanilla beans! They're gushing with caviar and are extremely huge. The smell is delectable and I'm about to buy some more, because I like them so much.

Great beans

I put my Pomponas in a jar with some nice white rum. Time will tell! I thought they'd be bigger.

Fantastic vanilla beans!

These vanilla beans have a great aroma and are soft and pliable. I have them in vodka to make a delicious double-fold vanilla extract.
