Veracruz Mexico Map

Currently, the Mexican vanilla bean is one of the most expensive and sought-after beans on the market due to limited supply. 

Our Veracruz Mexican vanilla beans are harvested along the Gulf Coast in the Veracruz state just north of the Yucatan region, where the climate is amicable and the soil is rich with nutrition. These factors make real, Mexican vanilla beans one of the most delightful and elegant vanilla beans on the planet.

When you open the package of Veracruz vanilla, you will immediately notice a dark-chocolate-like rich vanilla scent, followed with a spicy vanilla kick. As you remove the beans from their pouch, you will smell an earthy mocha vanilla with a notes of caramel and toffee. If you use these beans to make extract, you will taste and smell a strong, concentrated, sweet, buttery vanilla with soft notes of vanilla spice, some mocha and a hint of chocolate toffee. 

Our farmers work hard, hand-pollinating each orchid, to deliver a beautiful and sweet vanilla bean. 

Veracruz Grade A Mexican vanilla beans are usually between 6" and 7" inches long and have a dark brown color. Typically there are 6-7 of these beans in an ounce. They are perfect for making homemade vanilla extract, home cooking or baking. 

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

Mmmmmm! Veracruz Mexican

I recently received the Veracruz Mexican Vanilla Beans for the first time. These beans smell SO good and they're plump and oily. Did I say "Mmmmmm"? I purchased them specifically to make the Mocha Vanilla Extract (pg. 96 in 'The Art of Extract Making' book). It's only been extracting for about 9 days and it already looks and smells scrumptious. At one month, I'll remove the cocoa nibs and coffee beans, then let the beans continue extracting for another 11 months. I'm really looking forward to this one.


They were beautiful beans for my extracting
