Ayocote morado beans (organic)

Meaty  •  Velvety  •  Sturdy 

 

These majestic purple beans have deep roots in Oaxaca, traditionally served with smoky mole, and as a filling in masa street snacks. Complex and meaty, with a luxurious creamy yet firm texture, these beans make any meal special. Pair with similarly bold and assertive flavors dried chiles, earthy greens, and tangy cheese. We especially love them in dishes featuring their dark, flavorful broth.

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.

Nutty  •  Silky  •  Hearty

  

These long, creamy white beans are quintessentially Tuscan and savored throughout Europe. We love their gentle, nutty flavor and silky yet firm texture. They’ll hold up in just about anything slow-simmered soups and stews, pasta dishes, and marinated salads. They also make a luscious, super-smooth puree. Don’t skimp on the olive oil.

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.

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.

Sweet  •  Creamy  •  Smooth

 

These mid-sized beans with attractive pink-purple marbling are an old favorite in Central Mexico for brothy beans like frijoles charros.

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.

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.

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.

Michelet beans

 Mild  •  Creamy  •  Delicate 

 

These mid-sized white beans are essential to the French kitchen for thick stews like cassoulet. The texture becomes soft and creamy as the beans cook, and the mild, nutty flavor takes on whatever flavors you add. We love cooking them in homemade chicken stock, adding a richness that these beans can handle. Devour with a crusty baguette– the French way.
