Whole green cardamom pods


Alta Verapaz, Guatemala

In the high-altitude city of Cobán in Guatemala’s Alta Verapaz Department, the chipi chipi (misty rain) from the cloud forest creates the ideal microclimate of cool humidity to grow the world’s best cardamom, the third-most expensive spice in the world. Intercropped with other cloud forest comrades like coffee and cacao on a hillside family farm where our native grower is implementing new regenerative methods, the cardamom fruit, or pod, grows from vines that shoot from the base of a stalky, leafy clumping plant.

Tips for Success

  • Crush the pods and use them whole to infuse dishes with slow cooking.
  • You can also toast this spice to bring out nutty Smokey flavors. The compounds in cardamom disperse best in oil.
  • You can remove the inner seeds and grind them for a sharp flavor or grind the entire pod into a powder.


What is cardamom best used for?

“Cardamom pairs well with poultry, red meat, lentils, oranges, rice and other warm spices, like nutmeg and cinnamon. It’s ideal in curries, teas, baked goods (like this gorgeous bread) and sausages.” –

Is green cardamom the same as cardamom pods?

“In the case of green cardamom, both the pod and the seeds are used for flavouring.” –

What is the difference between green and black cardamom?

“The main difference between green and black cardamom is that green cardamom is smaller in size and has an intense flavor while black cardamom is larger in size and has a smoky flavor. Cardamom is a spice made from the seeds of various plants in the ginger family.” –
