Tahiti 80 extra pieces

Every June, the halaus come together for a Polynesian dance recital which is open to the public. In her 29 years of teaching, Auntie Fran has never missed coordinating this annual event, having to perform twice with her arm in a cast from injuries sustained in artistic dance roller skating injuries – a long-time recreational activity she has since given up for the sake of self-preservation.

Do you like things with a little attitude? Maybe you like motorcycles, tattoos, leather, and prefer classic rock over top 40 music? Pistols & Roses might be the slot you're looking for. This gritty game has edge and elegance, with icons like clubs, hearts, spades, and diamonds. There are multiple ways to win with pistols, bullets, and revolver chamber icons, as well as a scattering seven icon and a wild rose. Give Pistols & Roses a shot!

All that have change; now you can only travel with a board bag that is 158 linear centimeteres or 62 linear inches, thats the size of two boogie boards. No more free surfboard bag from LATAM. If your bag exceeds 300 linear cm (118 linear inches) it has to go through cargo......

Beans reviewed: Tonga, Mexico, Madagascar, Extra Long Papua New Guinea Planifolia, and PNG Tahitensis.
Grade: Gourmet/Grade A beans.
Cost: provided these beans for review, free of charge.

A reader recommended that I check out . I'm glad I did. is great source for exotic vanilla beans. Beans from Mexico and Tonga are currently listed, but I'm told they will soon add vanilla from Indonesia, Tahiti (tahitensis), Uganda, and Hawaii. I sent out an e-mail, and Brent of responded right away. He used the magic phrases that make any DIY'er tingle -- first, 's goal is to support the vanilla enthusiast community (thats us!), and second, were can I send samples . The samples arrived promptly with some exotic vanillas, and the LONGEST vanilla beans I've seen so far.

All the beans from are gorgeous and truly gourmet. They are uniformly plump, moist, and oily. Check out my close-up shots to see the different characteristics of each variety. All the beans reviewed in this instructable are excellent, but the Beanilla beans are the cream of the crop, close to perfect.

Tonga Planifolia (Grade A - $45 per 1/4 pound)
is the only vendor selling beans from Tonga, to the best of my knowledge. Vanilla is an emerging export from Tonga and the industry is just getting started. These beans are almost golden (but not as light as the pictures seem to depict). The skins are amazingly soft and supple. The aroma is more floral than the typical Madagascar bean, very soft and smooth. The oil in the Tonga vanilla is especially 'thick' and fatty. It's so thick that the caviar log could withstand substantial handling without falling apart. Often caviar is crumbly, but this was almost like vegetable shortening. Much higher-than-average caviar yield.

Mexico Planifolia (Grade A - $ per 1/4 pound)
Beautiful vanilla beans with striking reddish "cat's eye" streaks. Check out the close-up pictures to see for yourself. The aroma is very dark, even woody. These have the firmest skin of the five Beanilla bean varieties.

These aren't the only Mexican vanilla beans on the web, but this is the only vendor (with beans from Mexico) that responded to questions (emails) about their beans -- is thus the only source I can recommend. UPDATE: reduced their prices, they now have the best priced "real" Mexican vanilla beans I've seen.

Extra Long PNG Planifolia ("Gourmet Bourbon") (Grade A - $40 per 1/4 pound)
Huge beans, some are almost 9"! By far the longest vanilla beans I've ever seen (January 2008, check the latest Longest Bean Awards ....). Shockingly huge! These beans are from PNG, but have a much different aroma than other PNG beans I've reviewed. The smell is a combination of bold old-school chocolate licorice and coffee. I've read that bigger beans ripen longer and become more pungent -- perhaps that accounts for the strong aroma. I'm excited to extract these beans -- only the difference between planifolia and tahitensis has been similarly pronounced. Remarkable! So incredibly different from any others reviewed in this instructable.

These are also some of the "roundest" vanilla beans I've ever seen. Sometimes beans are paper thin, even 'plump' beans have a wide and a narrow side -- these were perfectly round and firm, but not tough. Caviar yield was obviously very high, twice as much as a similar number of average sized beans. The caviar was a bit like clay -- not fatty like the Tonga beans, but still moldable and cohesive.

Indonesia, Tahiti (tahitensis), Uganda, and Hawaii (Grade A)
According to Rob Conley (CEO):
"Soon we will be offering ... some other vanilla bean varieties, including Indonesian Vanilla, Tahitian (Tahiti) Vanilla and Ugandan Vanilla. We have also been working closely with farmers from Hawaii for the last 2 years. We are hoping that the crops will be ready to cure by mid 2008 so we can offer genuine Hawaiian vanilla to our online customers."
