Olivier Rœllinger's words

I was introduced to this pepper variety by Kerala growers in February 2018, at the height of the peppercorn harvest. It is a lovely peppercorn with hints of herbal bouquet garni notes.


Karimundi peppercorns are as small as Jeerakarimundi. Kuriyilamundi peppercorns have a long finish and a subtle, aromatic bouquet.

In Kerala, almost 15 years ago, 17 growers agreed to harvest, select, and sort by hand their peppercorn crops according to their botanical variety instead of their size. It was a gamble that went against the grain of previous custom.
We work with sustainable producers who respect the region's biodiversity. All the peppercorns are gathered by hand on small (3-acre) jungle-farms in the middle of the forest where coffee, cocoa beans, cardamom, coconuts, and bananas are also grown.
