La'ie, O'ahu, Hawai'i 

La'ie Vanilla is a family business producing beautifully aromatic Vanilla beans here on O'ahu. Because the natural pollinators for the Vanilla orchid are not present on the Hawaiian Islands, each flower is hand pollinated to produce fruit. The beans require a careful drying & curing process to reveal their highly coveted flavor & aroma.

We incorporate freshly dried beans by slicing the pods to release the tiny, sweet scented speckles of Vanilla and infuse them into various sweetly scented formulations. Read more about Vanilla here
