Pure Black Bourbon Vanilla Powder from Madagascar – 20g

$195 by pod

The vanilla orchid is native only to Mexico and relies on a rare black Mexican bee to pollinate naturally. In 1841, a French owned 12-year old slave on Île Bourbon (now Réunion Island) discovered how to hand-pollinate vanilla orchids. Shortly thereafter vanilla plantations were introduced and became commonplace on the island of Madagascar.  It is a vine of which some thirty sub-species have been identified. The vanilla market has products of different origins with marked differences:
• Mexican vanilla (vanilla fragans) with its subtle chocolate, spice and fruit fragrance
• Tahitian vanilla (vanilla tahitensis), has a low vanillin content and strong aniseed aroma with notes of prunes.

Le Comptoir Des Poivres has worked on an even higher quality new product range.

For several months the company have been pooling their skills, and they have sought out products of unquestionable quality using the same philosophy – they look for products directly at their production locations, they refuse any chemical treatments both on the plant and the product and any irradiation (hypocritically called ionisation), they ensure that the people working in the plantations work in optimal conditions, they require many selection processes to keep only the most exceptional grains or berries, they refuse any long storage and transport the products without intermediaries, that is to say with maximum traceability.

“Since my rural childhood, my life has been a perpetual search for authentic flavours, either while pottering round vegetable gardens, on walks through forests, local markets, at auctions, bakeries, grandmothers’ or mothers’ kitchens, in master cooks’ kitchens or even on trips across the world.
I’m someone who is eager to discover new sensations, scents, textures, flavours, not just to own them, but also to share them.
I like to tell stories about the wonders that surround us and the passion of men and women who give the best of themselves to bring you something exceptional.
My objective: to source the best, the most exclusive, the most authentic and most surprising and then narrate, share, transmit and astonish…”
