Get the Pepper to your kitchen
Explore the Pepper collection
In 2014 we immersed on a learning journey to find the world's best pepper! We discovered that this spice is a whole universe of traditions, varieties and colors. Green, red, black, yellow, white, brown, purple. Long, really long, comet tailed, late harvest, flower peppers, berries, grains.
The type of soil, amount of sun, rain and vicinity to the ocean effects the flavors. The taste changes from valley to valley, region to region. Hot, tingeling, intense, lingering, exploding, mature, chocolaty, fruity. The aromas, sensations and experiences are thrilling.
It is time that we shared it all with you!
We bring the best tasting unique pepper in the world into your mouth and onto your dishes. We believe that in order to fully enjoy pepper it must be of the highest quality meaning; handpicked, sun dried, hand sorted, sourced and packed from someone that we know.
Every bite of pepper should welcome you to a culinary journey that brings you to the origin, to the hands that nourished the plant, the fingers that picked the fruit and back to your awakened taste buds.
First we find regions with unique tastes, growing methods and culinary traditions that sets our passion for flavor ablaze. Then we look for partners, farmers and communities that share our values and a willingness to co-create. We always work inclusive and with long term commitments.
After that starts all the hard and interesting work of actually getting a high quality product to the other side of the world while supporting organic farming, biodiversity and positive development.
