Madagascar Bourbon Ground Vanilla from LAFAZA
Sustainable Organically-Grown Vanilla Powder
LAFAZA Ground Vanilla is just that – pure ground Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans, no fillers. Whole vanilla beans are slowly dried to remove any moisture and then finely ground to create an aromatic powder that has all the flavor, warmth and richness of a vanilla bean but in an easy-to-use format.
LAFAZA Ground Vanilla adds a wonderful depth of vanilla flavor to baked goods, custards, ice cream or anywhere you would use traditional vanilla extract (one tablespoon of vanilla powder is the equivalent of two tablespoons of extract). Or get creative - add ground vanilla to rubs for meats, pan sauces for wild game or make a vanilla-scented cup of coffee by adding a teaspoon to your coffee grounds before brewing.

About the Producer:
Nathaniel Delafield and Sarah Osterhoudt, two of the founders of LAFAZA, had no idea what journey awaited them when they first traveled to Madagascar for the Peace Corps. After working closely with local vanilla and clove farmers, the husband and wife team fell in love with Madagascar, the people and the fragrant crops they were growing. Unfortunately, the farmers in the area were struggling to sell their vanilla for fair prices. Inspired by these hardworking communities, Nathaniel and Sarah began to develop a sustainable, direct-trade model that would benefit the farmers with fair compensation and protect the forests and the environment.
Nathaniel and Sarah joined forces with Nathaniel’s brother, James, and together started bringing vanilla to the United States. Thus LAFAZA was born. The Oakland, California-based company first started selling vanilla beans and making vanilla extract and then expanded their line to include their ground vanilla. As their business continues to grow, the three are committed to staying true to their founding principles—forests, farmers and of course, flavor.
