We are sometimes able to offer one-time low prices on products in limited quantity. When we do, we offer them as "special buys". Special buy offers have their own name to help us distinguish and separate inventory. While no two vanilla beans are exactly the same, this "Kokopo" bean was grown in the same region as our regular Popondetta Papua New Guinea (PNG) bean but offered today at a lower price and with limited availability. If it's in stock, buy it quickly as it will stock out.

Welcome to Papau New Guinea, home to one of the most vanillin-rich vanilla beans on our planet. This is a one-time special buy offering for one of our customer favorite vanilla beans from Papua New Guinea. We named this bean after a city in PNG called Kokopo. 

VanillaPura's Kokopo Vanilla Beans are of the highest quality and boast one of the highest vanillin content levels of all vanilla beans. They are plump, dark, rich in oils and have a bold traditional vanilla aroma and taste when used in your extracts. Virtually any spirit will do when making vanilla extracts with this exquisite vanilla bean. 


When you first open a pouch of Kokopo vanilla beans, your nose will be met with pure vanilla bliss. It is one of the most rich vanilla experiences that we have encountered. It's a simple, elegant, fruity and traditional vanilla experience, much like Sumatra or Tongan but naturally a powerful, almost double-fold scent. The people and cultures that produce these amazing vanilla beans are proud of their heritage and the sweetness emanating from their country through this amazing little spice.

After months (or even years) of extraction, your finished Kokopo extract will demonstrate a bold and pronounced vanilla aroma with enhanced, traditional vanilla sweetness. This will be one of the sweetest vanilla extracts in your cupboard with universal application to every type of cooking.

Our Kokopo PNG vanilla beans are very oily and rich with vanillin. They are usually between 5" and 7" inches long and have a dark brown color. They are very fragrant and are often the choice of chef's for their outstanding traditional vanilla experience. 

VanillaPura vanilla beans are all shipped vacuum sealed for freshness and should be stored unrefrigerated in a cool, dry and dark place.

Very nice product

Susan Murphy
great vanilla

I am having a great vanilla extract day. I just put 1 oz of Kokopo PNG into 4oz of Eagle Rare to try it out. I plan to put the other 3 oz into Capt. Morgan White Rum for the sweetness. The Beans were soft and foldable to fit into the bottle. Fingers smell great.
The smell is filling up the house. Raw Cane Sugar will fill the bag to future baking enjoyment. Keep up the great beans and have a great day.

Wonderful smell

I just received two ounces of these lovely beans. Good amount of oils in the bag, great for sugars, and to the hands. Smells of creamy, buttery, sweet vanilla with a hint of fruit. I put one ounce in Skyy vodka and I ounce in Barcardi Superior Clear Rum. Nice beans with 8 beans to the ounce. I did cut off most of the top tips to put in the sugar bag for more flavor but made sure there was still .85 ounce of beans to extract with 8 ounces of liquor. Wonderful smell on my hands even after washing them. Love them.


I just received 4 oz of these beans a few days ago and made 2 bottles of double fold extract. I made with rum and decided not to use the sous vide method this time and try making it the old-fashioned way. I'll have to wait for a year to see how it turns out, but luckily, I've made so much extract I have other varieties to try.
