Olivier Rœllinger's words

Jeekarimundi peppercorns are highly sought after in India because they have a robust flavor and are fiery hot. The international market eschews them, however, because the peppercorns are so small. Jeekarimundi peppercorns are so hot that they will make your eyes water when you smell them.


The Malayalam name "Jeekarimundi" means "as small as a cumin seed" and the Jeekarimundi peppercorns are much smaller than other varieties. It is the favorite peppercorn among pepper growers and harvesters.
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.
