This Grade-A vanilla bean from Papau New Guinea, is one of the most sweet, floral and delicate vanilla beans that we have encountered. This vanilla bean is of the Tahitensis species, making it more floral, fruity and sweet. We named this bean after Kerema, a beautiful, quaint, tropical port town on the Central Western side of Papua New Guinea (PNG).

VanillaPura's Kerema Vanilla Beans are of the highest quality and boast one of the most bold, floral and sweet tastes of all vanilla beans. They are dark, rich in oils and have a predominately strong vanilla aroma and taste when used in your extracts. Light spirits like vodka, white rum and tequila are traditionally best when making vanilla extracts with this exquisite vanilla bean. 


When you first open a pouch of Kerema vanilla beans, your nose will be met with a fruity and floral sweet vanilla aroma. It's a simple, elegant, fruity and traditional vanilla experience. 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 Kerema PNG extract will demonstrate a strong vanilla aroma with enhanced, floral, fruity, cherry sweetness. This is a must-have extract in your cooking arsenal with applications in fruit-based pastries, pies, homemade ice creams and more.

Our Kerema PNG vanilla beans are very oily and rich with vanillin. They are usually between 4" and 6" inches long and have a dark brown color. 

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

On average, there are 5-8 beans/oz depending on the moisture content of the specific batch of vanilla beans. There can be as few as 5 beans or as many as 20 beans. Pricing reflects current market conditions and will be updated as market prices change.

This makes the best extract

I’m so glad I found this vanilla bean. My extract is the best I have ever made. I’m overjoyed at the flavor that came through with my double fold Kerema PNG. Must buy more. It’s excellent.
