After we have taken you in our previous blog articles to the origin of our idea to market vanilla, we would now like to introduce you to the latest addition to the cumpa range.
We have a very special relationship with the origin Peru. This is where our journey began, and from where we have sourced the majority of our coffee since the beginning. Besides the finest specialty coffee, Peru has much more to offer. A valuable product that traditionally grows there, like coffee, is a very special vanilla, which is now part of our assortment, the Vainilla Pompona.
We sell our vanilla in whole pods in milk glass packaging. We offer bottles with 1, 2, or 4 pods. The weight of a pod can be between 10 and 12g. We repack the pods from the original vacuum packs into the bottles with mouth guards and gloves and attach the banderole.
Our neutrally designed glass bottles make the vanilla suitable for both your own use in cafés and for sale to end customers in your stores. On top of that we also offer the pods packed (sealed in large bag airtight).
Please note that we only sell the vanilla to resellers and not to private customers.
Please wash your hands thoroughly and dry them thoroughly before taking out the vanilla. Always keep the jar closed. Don’t worry if you find small, whitish to cream-colored crystals on some pods. These are pretty much vanillin crystals. If you are unsure about the quality, feel free to contact us.
If you notice that the vanilla bean has rough, almost woody nicks on the outside, it’s almost like an organic certificate: ants have bitten into the shell here. It doesn’t harm the fruit, but shows that the orchid was produced in a functioning ecosystem.
Slice the pod lengthwise with a sharp, pointed knife. Unfold the pod and scrape the seeds from the spaces. The seeds will put the typical black dots in your food. Our tip is to never throw away the empty pod. There is still a lot of vanillin and other flavorings in here! Use the empty pod by adding it to the dish (especially when heating). Before serving, simply remove it, rinse it with cold water, pat it dry with paper towels, and then store it dry for the next use. You can use this “vanilla recycling” many times, as the flavor will only diminish very slowly. Also the preparation of vanilla sugar or a vanilla essence are well suited to get the maximum out of the pod.
