Cranberry beans

Sweet  •  Velvety  •  Plump 

 

These striking red-and-cream marbled beans are beloved around the world, especially Northern Italy. And for good reason: we love their plumpness, nutty flavor, and velvety smooth texture. As a bonus, they produce a rich, meaty broth, making these beans one of the best choices for stews and other brothy dishes. They hold their shape well, so try them in pasta and salads too.

 

Looking for heirloom and organic beans? You're in the right place. There are plenty of nuances when it comes to beans, and our beans are from recent harvests, packed with flavor and nutrition, and grown by climate-conscious family farms.

Nutty  •  Smooth  •  Supple 

 

These small, versatile beans come top of mind when thinking about Mediterranean-inspired dishes. We love their smooth, firm texture and mildly nutty flavor, making them a great candidate for really, anything from hearty soups to herby salads. They readily absorb flavor and pair deliciously with lots of garlic, skin-on chicken, and fatty meats like chorizo or pancetta.

Nutty  •  Smooth  •  Rustic

 

The ancient, knobby chickpea is a beloved staple across the globe, including the Middle East, India, Africa, and Europe. And rightfully so! These beans are incredibly versatile, adding creamy body to soups, curries, salads, rice, and pasta. What’s more, they can be transformed into hummus, falafel, or a crunchy snack.

Bacon-y  •  Creamy  •  Firm 

 

Popular in Central Mexico, these smooth, leather-colored beans are like a firmer, creamier pinto. We love their dense, smooth consistency and bacon-y notes, which pair perfectly with salty, tangy, and spicy flavors. These beans are one of the best choices for refried beans, frijoles de la olla, and other Mexican-inspired recipes. Serve on its own, or alongside grilled chicken.

A note from
our co-founder, Lesley

After spending 15 years working in agriculture and learning about the role that beans play in human and soil health, it became clear to me that beans are the perfect food. As I cooked my way through as many beans from around the world I could get my hands on, I knew I had to share the love.
