Alubia beans (organic)

$9.00


Nutty  •  Smooth  •  Supple 

 

These small, versatile beans come top of mind when thinking about Mediterranean-inspired dishes. We love their smooth, firm texture and mild 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.  Harvested: Fall 2021

Sourcing notes

The state of Zacatecas, northwest of Mexico City, has a rich history of thriving nomadic tribes as old as the Aztecs, and is the original site for some of the world’s first beans. Today, thousands of experienced small-scale farmers are Mexico’s leading producers of guavas, chiles, nopales, and, of course, beans– benefiting from the sunny, semi-arid climate and rich, red soils. We partnered with Armando Klein of Darmstadt Organics, who helped organize the farms in his community into a cooperative– so that they can benefit from shared resources and collectively innovate, like achieving organic certification and promoting crops that are important symbols of regional identity.

Great beans, wish for better packaging

My whole family (including 2 toddlers) love these beans! I just wish Primary beans came in something else besides plastic!

We're so happy to hear it! We absolutely hear you on the plastic and are excited to let you know that we've finally reached a scale that opens up new options for packaging. Stay tuned in January for the launch - we think you'll love it :)

Creamy!

I used these Alubia beans in a vegan baked bean recipe. I don't think I've every made baked beans before and these turned out so tasty and creamy and hearty! Looking forward to trying the other beans I bought.

Terrible customer service

I keep trying to temporarily stop my subscription to Alubia beans. I haven’t had any luck getting into my account. So I’ve tried asking for help directly and never get a reply. Plus every other bag of beans seems to have a petrified bean that could break a tooth. This is after inspecting the beans post-rinsing and soaking.

Hi there, thank you so much for reaching out about this.

We're so sorry to hear that you have experienced difficulties with your subscription. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience, as our small team works really hard to make our subscription easy to use and to respond to all communication we receive. Please direct all concerns to hello@primarybeans.com - we are always available to help you.

Regarding your feedback about the Alubia beans, always sort through any beans you cook with at home. Given the way beans grow, agricultural debris is always a concern. Our farm partners work really hard to make sure home cooks have a quality product to work with, but every once in a way, a rock or other debris may find its way into the pack. Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention.

Someone from our team will be in contact to resolve these issues for you!
