An invitation to travel

Épicéa ABC offers you the discovery of the flavors and the exceptional fragrance of vanilla from Madagascar.

The whole vanilla preparation process takes about 8 months. And is an integral part of Malagasy know-how from generation to generation.

It is very important to respect all the processing steps in order to obtain optimum final quality.

The vanilla once stabilized is rigorously selected by hand to offer the best of its potential.

Scalding

This step involves soaking the selected green pods in hot water at 60 degrees for 3 minutes.

Steaming

Vanilla pods are placed in crates padded with blankets to retain heat for 24 to 72 hours.

Drying

For 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the potential quality level (selection)

The vanilla pods are dried for a few hours a day in the oven first, then placed on racks in the sun before being put back in the shade for the best quality.

The ripening

The vanilla pods are placed in wooden trunks dressed with baking paper.

During the remaining months, in the secrecy of the trunks, the aroma will develop and develop under the rigorous and daily attention of the preparer.
