Extract B-grade beans?

Thanks for your informative site. A few of your top vendors don’t seem to sell extract quality beans at least not by glancing at their website. Where do you typically buy your beans from if you’re making extract? Are you using grade A or grade B?

Thanks,
Eric

I use grade B whenever possible, but grade A work great too! I’ve even thought that using grade A beans gave more depth and flavor to the extract, but not everyone agrees.

  1. Hi,
    Of course by using any kind of grade beans for extracts, with the tahitian vanilla, you have the same perfum: but the vanilla is the first smell and the alcohol after. I am Tahitian Vanilla Producer on Huahine island in French Polynesia.
