VanillaPura's V. planifolia Indonesian Vanilla Beans are of the highest quality and have a rich, dark aroma. It originates from the Papua region, which is the most eastern region of Indonesia directly above Australia and relatively near to Tonga and Tahiti. It's largest city right on the north eastern border is called Jayapura, a city name that we love at VanillaPura for obvious reasons!
When you first open a pouch of Indonesian vanilla beans from Papua, your nose will be met with dark, earthy vanilla notes that are bold and pronounced. As you bring an individual bean closer to your nose, the aroma will tease of dark chocolate with a smokey, bourbon-like accent further defining its perfect placement in your richest desserts. Finally, after months (or even years) of extraction, your finished extract will demonstrate a pronounced vanilla aroma with bold vanilla notes and subtle hints of caramel, cocoa and earthy, all-natural sweetness.
Jayapura Indonesian Grade B vanilla beans are a beautiful choice for vanilla extract. Drier than grade A they can still be pliable sometimes, but can often be dry and brittle and easy to break. They are usually between 5" and 7" inches long and have a dark brown color. These vanilla beans are a favorite among dark chocolate lovers. They are the perfect compliment to some of your dark and rich desserts. Their smokey undertones pair well with bourbon for at-home extract making.
VanillaPura vanilla beans are all shipped vacuum sealed for freshness and should be stored unrefrigerated in a cool, dry and dark place.
Papua Indonesia is located ideally for vanilla cultivation within the world's "bean belt". The rugged terrain of this area makes cultivation difficult but the soil and climate provide high harvest yields and exquisite tastes. These ideal climate and soil conditions have helped to make Indonesia the second largest producer of vanilla beans in the world, just behind Madagascar. As a country, Indonesia is made up of thousands of islands spanning 735,000 square miles surrounded by beautiful waters right on the equator. The broad expanse of land, climate and unique soil conditions across Indonesia result in an equally diverse vanilla offering. An Indonesian vanilla bean grown in one region is entirely different than an Indonesian vanilla bean grown in another region.
When extracted using VanillaPura's techniques with aged spirits, Jayapura Grade B Indonesian Vanilla beans are sure to enhance any culinary creation.
