VanillaPura's V. costaricensis Costa Rican Vanilla Beans are of the highest quality and boast a flavor that is unique to the central American region coupled with a rich vanilla taste found only by this incredibly rare species of vanilla. These aren't the smokey and spicy vanilla beans from Mexico up north, nor are they the extra sweet and fruity vanilla beans from Ecuador down south. These big and beautiful V. costaricensis vanilla beans have a taste all their own, with notes of mocha, caramel, raisins and super sweet vanilla. It's a beautiful vanilla experience.

We named this vanilla bean after the beautiful Costa Rican town of Grecia built around an old, beautiful church building with a culture committed to living every day to the fullest. Pura Vida!!

The Grecia beans from Costa Rica

These beans were very plump and long-8 1/2 inches, and only 4 beans to an ounce. They smelled heavenly, like chocolate and caramel and very bold. I put one ounce in Platinum 7X and 1 ounce in Captain Morgan White Rum. I think I should have purchased more as they smell so good and I'm sure they will taste great.
