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 ever the same, this "Lakatoro" bean was grown in the same region as our regular Mavea Vanuatu bean but offered today at a lower price and with limited availability. If it’s available, buy it quickly as it will sell out.

This is a very difficult bean to find. It's a vanilla bean with a taste like no other. In fact, the aroma and taste of this bean is reminiscent of ginger spice and nutmeg. You will also notice hints of cinnamon and sandalwood. No other vanilla bean has those characteristics.  

Like all VanillaPura beans, The Lakatoro(Vanuatu) vanilla beans are of the highest quality. They are plump, dark, extremely rich in oils. Light spirits like vodka, white rum and tequila are best when using this bean in your DIY extracts. But given the ginger and nutmeg undertones of this amazing bean, it is fantastic with spiced or dark rum as well, and perfect for specialty holiday extracts.  


(A small island within Vanuatu)

When you first open a pouch of The Lakatoro Vanuatu vanilla beans, your nose will be met with a burst of powerful vanilla aroma that is certainly one of the most bold vanilla beans that we have experienced. As the vanilla scent subsides, you will begin to tease out the spicy undertones that make this vanilla bean a favorite among pastry chefs and at-home dessert connoisseurs alike. Cinnamon, sandalwood, mango and floral, spicy sweetness will all present themselves to you.



(The location of Vanuatu provides the climate and unique soil to make this vanilla bean an entirely new experience.) 

After months (or even years) of extraction, your finished Lakatoro Vanuatu vanilla extract will demonstrate a sweet, spicy extract with notes of mango, cinnamon, sandalwood and subtle notes of nutmeg. 

These vanilla beans are very oily and rich with vanillin. They are usually between 6" and 8" inches long and have a dark brown color. Like all vanilla beans from VanillaPura, they are backed by our 100%, no questions asked satisfaction guarantee. 

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 6-10 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.
