Ground Vanilla Beans

Only the finest premium whole vanilla beans are used to make our Ground Vanilla Beans. They contain 100% of the beans flavor and have not been used to make vanilla extract prior to grinding. For customers looking for just a visual, we recommend using the vanilla bean seeds or specks in lieu of the ground beans.

Ground beans can be used to add flavor to ice cream, baked goods or any place vanilla extract is typically used. If you are using ground beans to replace vanilla extract in a recipe, they are twice as strong, so use half as much.

Silver Cloud’s Premium Vanilla Beans  

All the vanilla beans sold by Silver Cloud Estates are grown exclusively on the estates in the beautiful Nilgiri, or Blue Mountains of Southern India.  Since we grow our vanilla beans we have tremendous control over the quality of the beans and other vanilla products we sell.  It enables us to guarantee that the products are natural and produced in an eco-friendly manner.  No child labor is ever used to plant, grow, pollinate, harvest or process any of our products.
In the last five years, Silver Cloud Estates has become one of the largest growers of vanilla (Vanilla planifolia) in the world. The estate's elevation, rich soil and climate offer the ideal growing conditions for this tropical orchid and the plants have thrived. Today, over 100,000 plants are intercropped with tea, coffee, black pepper, cardamom and other spices.

The vanilla beans grown on the estate are high in natural vanillin; typically much higher than the beans grown in Madagascar, Papua New Guinea or Tahiti.  Vanillin, gives vanilla much (but not all) of its characterizing flavor and aroma. All the beans we sell are "premium" or "prime quality". Only the very finest beans, which are long,  have no visible defects,  are mahogany in color and an oily appearance, are graded as “premium” or ”prime quality".

We invite you to try Silver Cloud's Premium Vanilla Beans, Pure Vanilla Extracts, Vanilla Bean Paste and Vanilla Sugar. We believe if you do you will recognize them as among the finest vanilla products produced anywhere in the world.

Storing Your Vanilla Beans

Stored properly, your vanilla beans from Silver Cloud should remain fresh and pliable for a year or more.  After removing the beans from the vacuum sealed pack store them in an airtight container.  The temperature should be relatively constant.  Never refrigerate or freeze your beans, they will dry out and may develop mold.  Open the container every few weeks and enjoy the aroma.  This will  let the air circulate a bit, which helps prolong the shelf life.   Over time your beans might develop an edible crystal frost.  This is natural vanillin, which gives vanilla its characteristic flavor.  

Make The World's Best Vanilla Flavored Coffee

Add 1-2 tsp's. of Silver Cloud 's Ground Vanilla Beans to your coffee maker's filter with your favorite ground coffee. It will give your coffee a subtle, but delicious vanilla flavor.

For an added touch use a whole vanilla bean or bean segment as a coffee stirrer.  Your guests will love it!!
