Le Comptoir des Poivres

For several years we have been looking for products of an unsuspected quality with the same philosophy: search for products directly on the production site, refusal of any chemical treatment on the plant as well as on the product and a fortiori any irradiation (hypocritically called ionisation), making sure that the people working in these plantations work in optimal conditions, demanding numerous sortings to keep only the exceptional grains or berries, refusing any long storage and routing the products without intermediaries, i.e. with a maximum traceability We are proud to be grocers and wish to give back to this profession its letters of nobility. Le Comptoir des Poivres is a grocer and we are proud of it.

  • Real peppercorns
    <p>Le Poivre est originaire de la Côte de Malabar au sud-ouest de l'Inde. C'est une liane qui appartient à la famille botanique des Pipéracées.On en trouve aujourd'hui dans de nombreux pays de la ceinture tropicale. Le vrai poivre est issu des lianes tropicales de Piper Negrum dont on tire le poivre blanc, noir, rouge ou vert, et Piper Longum, le poivre long. D'autres se présentent sous la forme d'une baie portant une queue. Les faux poivres possède tout le piquant des vrais poivres. Certains sont plus doux ou plus fruités. Ils sont en fait issus d'une autre plante, bien différente du Piper.</p>

  • False Peppercorns
    <p>Les faux poivres possèdent tout le piquant des vrais poivres. Ils ressemblent véritablement aux vrais poivres ; d'aucuns sont doux, fruités ou relevés. Néanmoins ils sont issus d'une autre plante que le Piper Nigrum. Dans les temps anciens,"le Roi des épices" était une monnaie d'échange, longtemps réservé à une élite. Conscients de ce potentiel et de cette valeur, producteurs et marchands ont appelé les "faux poivres" les baies roses, baies de Sechuan, de Timut et autres épices, présentant elles-aussi un intérêt certain.</p>
  • Whole spices
    <p>Comptoir des Poivres offers a wide selection of whole or shaved spices. Turmeric, nutmeg, cloves, pistachios, aniseed and cocoa beans will delight cooks, pastry chefs and gourmets.</p>
