What seller do you purchase from? I know many of you have ordered from EBay, and I just saw that Olive Nation as Madagascar beans as well.

Also, do you primarily use Madagascar beans or another flavor or a combo of both?

I purchase from Hach&Ausmann.

Tried Penzeys and they were dried hard as rock. Not fragrant at all.

Tried other brands, not nearly as true or strong.

I purchased some wonderful beans from for an excellent price. My resulting vanilla is great.

The beans came with a recipe card and they also sent a sampler of some of the "higher grade" beans--enough to make at least another pint of extract.
