Vanilla beans grown in Uganda are almost always of the Planifolia type. Like many other African countries, most farmers used to sell their green vanilla directly to large extract producers. Thus, few of them know how to do the work of preparation properly. We are far from the age-old traditions of Madagascar. Nevertheless, many of them try the change to carry out the transformation in order to increase their profit margin. What a good idea! In addition to bringing them a more decent income for their work, it allows us to taste the unique identity of this land: delicately chocolatey with round, creamy and floral notes of chamomile. Don't stop at the disconcerting nose of cowhide: their flavour is a real delight!
The crop we present to you comes from the family of Timothy Pulunmy. This young man is at the beginning of his career, but his respect for the product, his curiosity and his efficiency make him a very promising artisan. His pods are fruitier than the usual Ugandan pods: proof of an important advancement in the quality of his work. We can't wait to see what he has in store for us next year!
