Olivier Rœllinger's words

Kuriyilamundi is a hot, bright Indian black peppercorn with a bouquet that oscillates between grassy flavor notes and fragrant hints of mace and a long finish.
During the 2019 harvest, the Kerala growers we work with introduced us to this variety of piper nigrum. A few months later, we were thrilled to receive the first kilos of this extraordinary pepper.


Kuriyilamundi is a rare pepper variety that is grown by only a handful of Kerala farmers.

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.
