Industry Knowledge: Cubebs originated from the West Indies, with the best product coming from the Java, Indonesia. Cubeb peppercorns taste strongly aromatic, pungent and somewhat bitter. It's a flavour much like Black Peppercorns but with more complex herbal tones. Cubeb peppercorns are grown extensively in coffee plantations, like those found in the Java, where they can be well shaded and supported by coffee trees. These traditional origins are what give the Cubeb Peppercorns their complexity and rich flavour profile, something that cannot be imitated well elsewhere. Cubebs should always be bought in their peppercorn form, not as powders, where they can be diluted with other substances. Our peppercorns are 100% natural, free from dilution and not genetically modified in any way - they are produced to be enjoyed to the same degree as they were centuries ago, as a luxurious spice.
*INDUSTRY SPECIFIC TERMINOLOGY.
Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
