Grown using regenerative integrated agricultural techniques, Ea Sar Black Pepper is a combination of two heirloom pepper varieties, Vnh Linh and Trâu Xanh. Together, the two types of sun-dried peppercorns hit a perfect balance of fragrance and flavor. Coming from young, innovative farmers in Dak Lak, Vietnam, this pepper has notes of fresh herbs, dried fruit, and tropical heat. Burlap & Barrel has decided to name the new harvest of Ea Sar Black Pepper: "Robusta Black Peppercorn". The same pepper, new name! This new name honors the regenerative farming that farmers Dng and Thanh practice on their shade-grown coffee farm. The peppercorn vines are a companion crop to the Robusta coffee plants, providing shade for the coffee. Product of Ea Sar, Vietnam

Burlap & Barrel sources their single origin spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms, bypassing brokers and middlemen who drive prices up and quality down. Founders Ethan Frisch and Ori Zohar visit farms personally and spend time with farmers, learning firsthand about the economic, social, and cultural factors behind their farming methods. Burlap & Barrel then supports these farmers by providing purchase commitments to give greater financial security, sharing knowledge from across their global farmer network, and expanding on-site value-added activities such as sorting, grinding, and packaging to increase farmer revenue. Burlap & Barrel works with their partner farmers to identify unique varietals of spices that are often overlooked by the commodity spice industry – as well as valuable byproducts – to maximize the farms' earnings. Plus, in selling these spices, Burlap and Barrel highlights the areas they come from, bringing attention to sustainability and ecological needs and practices in other parts of the world.
Keep in a dry place away from heat and light. While spices will stay good for a long time, they don't necessarily "get better with age," so use them generously and often! Read more about Burlap & Barrel's spices HERE.
