The perfect finishing spice for your delights Caviar Chili

Carefully handcrafted

The KOOURMEE Caviar Chili is cultivated with love and care in the Marchfeld in Austria.

At the beginning of the year the fastidious and demanding chili plant is carefully cultivated. In order to develop optimally, it requires perfect conditions for germination, requiring a lot of attention and sensitivity. The original variety of our gourmet cultivation comes from Central America and needs a lot of warmth and care to feel comfortable.

Optimal conditions in the polymer tunnel

Until the summer the chili plants grow into bushes of about 1m in height.

The polymer tunnel protects against rain and wind and ensures that temperatures remain high. Vibrant foliage, small white star-shaped flowers and the first still green fruits are the best signs for a successful harvest in late summer and autumn.

Time for even more manual work

From the end of August, the ripening fruits turn orange, giving them their bright colour.

The harvest season takes several months, as only some of the fruits are ripe at any one time, with others still green as well as new flowers forming at the same time. The harvest is purely done manually. Each chili berry must be picked individually, ensuring the plant is not damaged. Harvesting season lasts till October or November at the latest when European autumn ends. The frost-sensitive chili plants do not survive the winter, so everything starts all over again in the new year.

Slowly and gently

As soon as the chilli is harvested, it is spread for air drying.

During this phase a large part of the weight evaporates and the KOOURMEE Caviar Chili unfolds its versatile aromas and taste dimensions. The bright orange colour of the berries remains and the KOOURMEE Caviar Chili gets its final look.

Tina Urban, Schlemmerfee

I've always found chili too spicy.
Because of the biting hotness in my mouth I could not taste anything else.
KOOURMEE Caviar Chili is completely different:
It has a subtle, pleasant and fruity pungency that fades after a few minutes
while retaining its flavour.
Spicy food is finally a pleasure to eat!

Legendary

Myth Chili

According to legends, the Aztecs and Maya used chilli as a luxury food in Central and South America over 8000 years ago. Christopher Columbus brought it to Europe as an exotic spice in the 15th century, where it was initially only available to the ruling elite.

It is said to have an aphrodisiac effect and is called a natural happiness and slimming agent, as it is said to release endorphins stimulating circulation and metabolism.
