      For exceptionally well priced vanilla, there's an importer on Valencia near Liberty that does web sales at Even with shipping I think you'd be hard pressed to beat their prices and quality, for either vanilla or saffron. In the past, I've picked up stuff at the shop, but they don't do that anymore. They do sell through an ice cream store across the street. I forget the name of the ice cream place.

        Agree is amazing, just wish they were more convenient.

            Compared to 1 bean for $3.99 at Berkeley Bowl!

              Actually compared to 1 bean at Andronico's, $10 but it was a beautiful bean in it's own glass sarcophagus.
