Ingredients: Premium Vanilla Beans - Vanilla Tahitensis (Tahitian variety)
The story of these vanilla beans starts with a Belgium retiree, who decided to settle in Ecuador. His hobby was vanilla beans, so he brought a few plants. After a while, he gave up, and decided to give a friend of his, a small farmer nearby, some plants. This farmer became fascinated with the cultivation and process of this wonderful plant. As his production increased, and his techniques improved, locals started to buy his vanilla, and he soon expanded to provide bakeries and small manufacturers. Now, available in Europe and North America, these vanilla beans are a delight for everyone around the world.
Enjoy the journey of this artisanal vanilla from the Ecuadorian Andes.
STORE IN AIR-TIGHT CONTAINER
CocoaSupply is an INGREDIENTS supplier. For that, the appearance of products is not as important as it is to have the most cost-effective shipping options to our customers to make the ingredients the most affordable without sacrificing ethical integrity and quality. Therefore, our products are shipped everywhere without refrigeration regardless of weather conditions.
This, however, can cause FAT BLOOM and some melting together in some cases. BUT THIS WILL NOT AFFECT THE USABILITY of these ingredients. For that, we do not refund, exchange, or accept claims based on fat blooming, melting, or the appearance of the products. Otherwise, we would not be able to deliver products during warm weather.
Please note that fat bloom looks like greyish/whitish lines or spots on the chocolate/paste. It also has a sandy/crumbley texture. Once re-melted, it can be tempered again and can be used without any difference.
