Disappointed

You should really put on your website that these may come split in half, for the price we are paying that should be mentioned. I called and asked the lady and she didn't seem to care, so I buy my beans elsewhere now. I was extremely disappointed when they came split in half, I don't split my beans until they're done extracting, this would've been nice to know before I wasted my money. My business wouldn't have survived 30+ yrs if I conducted business in this manner. Thank you for listening. Have a nice weekend!

Peruvian Vanilla Beans

The company was very responsive. I bought 4 ounces of beans. When I saw that the quality was there,I bought an additional 4 ounces. I am making extract from different beans in different alcohols to determine what I like best. Now the wait begins.
