Rancho Gordo Rio Zape Beans - 16oz

Country of Origin: United States
Region: California

Steve Sando began the Rancho Gordo company, based in Napa, with the goal of promoting native new world specialty foods, with a focus on beans. Steve reminds us native foods from the Americas are worthy of celebration. The freshness of Rancho Gordo beans offers insight into the pure and individual flavors hidden within each type of bean. 

This was one of the first beans to open Steve's eyes to the wonders of heirloom beans. With flavors similar to Pinto beans, you might also detect notes of coffee and chocolate (at least Steve did!). This is a dense bean that brews a dark liquor when cooking.
