Uganda is an ideal location for vanilla production as one of the very few regions with two distinct dry seasons per year providing extremely fresh vanilla all year round. A smart choice for customizing sensory profile and highlighting specific notes grace to high tech. Using a fusion of patented technology, deep knowledge of plant metabolism, and a data-driven approach, these unique vanilla beans are not only the most vanillin-concentrated in the market, but also inspire a lot of new possibilities.


Choose your vanilla profile between *Brown Notes : The essence of vanilla rounded out with the robustness of deep, chocolatey scents and nuts roasted on an open flame. *Caramel Notes : Roasted sugars and smoky caramels typify this sensory profile, bringing to mind freshly-baked pastries. *Vanilla Floral : A romantic yet fresh profile, made with sweet flower and fruit aroma notes, a specialty for perfumers.

* Vanillin crystals is the natural end expression of the benzenoid crystal that matures inside the pod. Within properly cured vanilla pods vanillin functions as an important conservative, and its content should be high enough before curing and refining in order to stimulate natural immune resistance to mold and create delicious dark fragrant vanilla smell and flavours. Vanillin crystals are a natural concentrate and a sign of excellent quality of the vanilla pods.


You can recognise them as they shine in the light and look like white spines or literally shiny sharp glass-like tiny “diamonds” of vanilla, such as the THC residue on excellent marijuana plants.


When vanilla pods have this high vanillin content they can be kept for years under excellent storage condition, in glass tubes or glass jars well protected from light. Crystalline beans also have an amazing and powerful smell and tend to dry out over time so the smell and flavor packs into the plant matter but does not diffuse aromatically through the air without interaction or extraction. The flavor literally soaks deep into the skin and seeds and retains inside the pod.
