Ayocote Blanco beans (organic)

Earthy  •  Velvety  •  Rustic 

 

These flavorful white beans are worthy of celebratory occasions in Mexico, commonly savored with pork and pickled jalapeños. We’re big fans there is something special about the large size, complex earthy flavor, and velvety smooth texture. These beans work equally well with Mediterranean flavors, just like their cousins the Corona and Gigante. Whatever the cuisine, they add body and creaminess to dishes where size matters salads, saucy dishes, and gratins.

Mayocoba beans

Sweet   •  Buttery  •  Hearty 

 

These delightful yellow beans are beloved in Coastal Mexico for refried beans, and perfect for tacu tacu, a favorite in Peru to use up leftover beans and rice. We love their smooth, buttery texture and rich golden broth, making a brothy bowl of these beans a meal in and of itself. They have a mildly sweet flavor and are one of our top picks for recipes calling for white beans, where their creaminess can shine.

Harvest information
on every bag

Unlike beans at the grocery store, ours are sourced directly from farms and delivered right to you, with harvest information on every bag.

Grown with home cooks in mind

We obsess over quality and partner with forward-thinking farmers and researchers who are committed to growing for flavor and nutrition.
