"2 pods for an exceptional taste journey to the island of Madagascar"

In the 17th century, Reunion Island was named Bourbon Island, the name of the dynasty that ruled France. During this century, Henri IV, Louis XIII and Louis XIV reigned, three direct Bourbon who were essential in the history of France. It is the name of this island, the first place in the world after Mexico that saw the development of vanilla culture, that inspired the name of the most famous vanilla. This appellation is only attributed to 5 vanilla-producing territories in the Indian Ocean, including Madagascar. If the 16-17 cm Bourbon Gold vanilla that I am proposing to you today has a royal name, it is clear that once you have tasted it, it deserves its rank. Let yourself be captivated by a fleshy bean, which has been matured for a long time and has a moisture content of 25-30%. Fall under the spell of its cocoa and fruity notes that will revolutionize your kitchen and give it another dimension. Today, Madagascar cultivates 80% of the world's vanilla production. It has become a very popular product, yet it has not lost that little bit of luxury that suits it so well.
Vanilla cultivation cannot leave any details to chance. Not everyone can become a vanilla producer. The steps are numerous, it requires a lot of patience and therefore, a lot of passion. In the Sava region, I have managed to meet producers who love their job and who do it well. Their 16-17 cm Bourbon Gold vanilla is a pure gustatory treasure that took them years to produce. If you're not familiar with vanilla growing, here are a few simple steps on how it works. First of all, you need a plantation of vanilla trees, a species of orchid, which will only produce flowers after 3 years. These are pollinated to produce pods... only 8 to 9 months later. Once mature, the pods are harvested. But the cultivation doesn't stop there. They must then be scalded, steamed, dried and refined. Refining is a specific process that consists of placing the pods in wooden trunks for months. It is there that your Madagascar vanilla beans develop all their aromas to offer you an incredible product.
Even if most of you are familiar with Bourbon vanilla, others are discovering this product. And what could be better than a batch of 2 beans for a discovery session. My only desire is to satisfy you with a high quality vanilla. I have selected the best producers for that. However, tastes and colours are not debatable. While some can't do without Bourbon vanilla, others can only see through Mexican vanilla. With these two pods, taste this product and give me your opinion.
