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. This "Moroni" vanilla bean is the same as our regular Sima Comoros vanilla bean but at a lower price and with limited availability.
If it’s available, buy it quickly as it will sell out.
VanillaPura's V. planifolia Comoros Vanilla Beans are of the highest quality and have a very unique aroma and taste profile. Given its location near Madagascar, it boasts all the traits of a sweet Madagascar vanilla bean. But underneath that classic vanilla aroma and taste, you will discover hints of chocolate, caramel and, yes... marshmallows. It's a soft note of sweetness and the word "marshmallow" seems to describe it best. It's truly a unique vanilla experience.
The Comoros islands are a very small and remote part of our world. Hidden on most world maps by the massive neighboring country of Madagascar to its East, and the continent of Africa to its West. Yet, there it lies in the Mozambique Channel with its beautiful capital city Moroni as the commerce hub of the country.

The Moroni Comoros vanilla beans are oily and high in vanillin content. These are plump vanilla beans, and are usually between 5" and 7" inches long and have a dark brown color. Great for sugars, salts and powders when dried, in addition to their excellent use in extracts.
VanillaPura vanilla beans are all shipped vacuum sealed for freshness and should be stored unrefrigerated in a cool, dry and dark place.
This is a group buy product. Group buy orders are combined with other customer orders and may have a lead time of 4-8 weeks. The result is a low-priced, gourmet vanilla bean. "Wait a little, and save a lot!"
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 15 beans. Pricing reflects current market conditions and will be updated as market prices change.
