This cardamom is grown on a single estate in the cloud forests of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, a biodynamic farm using traditional organic methods. The farm emphasizes workers' rights, sustainability and fair business practices. The terroir is ideal for cardamom, which thrives in humid, high altitude environments with plenty of rainfall. The comparatively low temperatures in the mountains during the harvest season (November-January) ensures high levels of fragrant essential oils.

This green cardamom is bright and herbal, with warm notes of ginger and pine. Grind and add to cakes and pastries, or use whole in soups and curries for fragrance and elevated flavor.
