Purchase Gaya Mexican Vanilla Extract at Melissa Guerra

Vanilla extract can be found in numerous places-food, drinks, or even a scent. The Gaya Mexican Vanilla Extract is known for it’s rich, delicious taste and aroma, originating from the Totonac Tribes in the deep lands of Mexico. Trying to get your hands on this treat? Melissa Guerra has it in store for you!


How Gaya Mexican Vanilla is Made

The great idea sparked in Veracruz, where Meixcan Vanilla was born. The Gaya Mexican family has been producing this extract since 1877, making their mark in history as this delicacy became more known. The process begins with a vanilla orchid grown in the shade of either chocolate or citrus trees. After some growth, the beans are then harvested by hand and kiln cured. Sounds pretty simple right? As easy as it sounds, it was a tedious process, but eventually resulted in a rich, floral fragility that is quite commonly used today.


How It’s Used

I’m definitely an avid baker, so the 17 oz bottle of vanilla extract that Melissa Guerra offers is perfect for my kitchen along with my baking needs! For my happy hostess, I would for sure invest in some La Popular Chocolate to go along with your vanilla. This chocolate mix is great for making mole or hot chocolate. Add some vanilla and you have the perfect drink during the holidays! Also, from our spices department, try the Gaya Mexican Vanilla Pods. Their flavor is amazing and makes a great supplement to the Gaya Mexican Vanilla Extract.
