Great vanilla beans!

Quick deliver and great bean. Making vanilla extract. Got plumpest Ugandan beans. The Tahitian beans are from Tahiti, not grown elsewhere, so a little more expensive, but worth it to get the best.

Satisfied

The vanilla beans smell good. I'm making vanilla extract, so can't really judge how strong they are until the extract is ready. Service was fine. Good company, so far.

Ugandan Vanilla beans

I just started my vanilla extract last night, so I won’t know for sure for quite sometime. But the beans smelled delicious, I was happy to find them at your site, and I love that the shipping was free!

Good Quality

I was originally looking for Madagascar Beans to use in my desserts for the holidays, but they weren't in stock. When I saw that this company were offering 10 Ugandan Beans for 15 bucks ($1.50 per bean), I ordered immediately. When my package arrived I was surprised at how similar these beans were to Madagascar. They had that same herbal smell with the addition of chocolate notes. The beans were very moist, the flavor was good, and the flavor stood up to baking. This was my first time purchasing vanilla through this company, and I will continue to do so from now on. I will try Mexican vanilla next.
