Exploring the Tropical Culture of Tonka Bean

The Coumarou, a gigantic tree that sustains the green lung of the Earth, produces orange fruits reminiscent of mangoes in shape. When ripe, this fruit provides reddish, almond-sized oblong beans, which are dried for nearly a year and then soaked in strong alcohol for 24 hours. After this lengthy process, they are dried again and become black and wrinkled. Its aromas of sweet almond, vanilla, caramel, coffee for some, or "Amsterdamer" tobacco cherished by our grandfathers for others, are incredibly delicate. Its taste is warm and indulgent with a slight bitterness reminiscent of cocoa.

Tonka Bean, a Lucky Bean

In French Guiana, to make a wish, one needs a tonka bean in their left hand and a dead snake in the other. To make their wish come true, all they have to do is throw the bean into a watercourse and hang the snake in the highest branches of a tonka bean tree, the Coumarou, a Brazilian teak tree. The name "Tonka" comes from the Tupi language of the French Guiana Tupis.
