Meet the maker: L'Maya Gourmet Vanilla

Spanning three generations, Roco Import, producers of L’Maya, was established in 1970 to satisfy the different needs of the Latin American market. William Rosillo started to produce, import and export a wide range of goods for the home, kitchen and businesses – from coffee, to vanilla – for both personal and industrial use. In the last few years, vanilla has become one of the most popular flavours around the world and the uses of vanilla have increased extremely quickly. Daniela Rosillo has since taken over the company to focus on bringing more natural and high quality vanilla products to the British market.     Following traditional methods of production, L’Maya vanilla products are naturally extracted and handmade in Latin- American fields, where the tropical weather plays a special role in providing the same taste and flavour that has been used by the Totonacs and Mayans since the early 1400s. L’Maya prides itself on producing natural and sugar-free vanilla products to give your cooking and baking the very best flavour. Every 207ml bottle contains high quality vanilla bits made from around 7 vanilla pods, with low levels of alcohol and absolutely no coumarin. L’Maya vanilla extract is macerated for over six months to produce the purest vanilla blend with the best aroma and flavour, and it is available in different levels of concentration so you can create the most delicious cakes and bakes!   vanilla baking l'maya mexican
