Vanilla grows as a vine, climbing up an existing tree or pole. The distinctively flavoured compounds are found in the fruit, which results from the pollination of one flower. Each flower is pollinated by hand individually. Inside the pods is an oily liquid full of tiny seeds.

Cured and massaged throughout the drying of the pods to perfect the shape and texture of the bean. This process takes a lot of time and experience to achieve the most result with the highest vanillin content. Our farmers are mostly on the island of Zanzibar.
