I was shocked by the high prices at this place, but the folks were helpful in getting me to understand pepper differences. They even showed me how to infuse a long pepper in gin. They also have "b" samples which are cheaper.

Dear tfizzle. Thank you for visiting The Kampot Pepper Shop. There are many reasons why Kampot Pepper is expensive. Very little of it is produced - less than 80 tonnes last year, just half a percent of Cambodia's, and only 0.016% of global, annual production. It is extremely high labour to produce to the highest standards, sorted by hand (corn by corn with tweezers!); it is 100% organically grown and we get very low yields; it is the only pepper in the world recognised as exceptional enough to awarded Protected Geographic Indication. There are also reasons why you can sometimes buy "Kampot Pepper" cheaper elsewhere. Some of it is counterfeit, some is mixed with peppercorns from other parts of Cambodia or from Vietnam, but much of what you find in and around Kampot is genuinely from a certified Kampot Peper farm but not sorted to the standards specified in the The Kampot Pepper Promotion Association's "Book of Requirement". (The KPPA is the body that is responsible for setting and monitoring Kampot Pepper production). I.e. they leave the "B" grade in the mix. As you saw, we do not do that but offer it separately as a lower grade product, NOT named "Kampot Pepper". At the Kampot Pepper Shop we are rigorous in following the correct procedures that make Kampot Pepper the best in the world and our prices are similar to other producers that market the highest quality, genuine Kampot Pepper. Indeed we are quite often a little bit cheaper. I am delighted the girls in The Kampot Pepper Shop looked after you well during your and gave you a useful introduction to pepper production. I hope that, despite the price, you did manage to buy a little for yourself and will get to realise how much difference using a good pepper can make to your enjoyment of everything that you eat. All the best, CHRIS & ALY

We looked in a couple of times before making a third visit to buy. The assistants were very helpful and encouraged sampling the whole range of salts, peppers and spices. There's no pressure to buy. We didn't visit the farm but made a few purchases on our final visit to take

Many thanks for visiting The Kampot Pepper Shop. Apologies for the slow response to your generous review. We would love to hear how the Kampot pepper Christmas presents went down So please come and visit again, but next time come and visit Bo Tree Farm which now has a fully up and running little visitor centre and cafe serving great pepper infused food. Tours of the plantation are complimentary to anyone who makes the effort to come out there! (Plus there are hammock houses to chill out in and a natural swimming pool to cool off!) All best, CHRIS & ALY

Dear Caroline, Many thanks for visiting our shop and for your flattering review! Nice to know that people coming here to The Kampot Pepper Shop go away feeling they have learned something new. Enjoy the green salted pepper. It is still a bit of an experiment for us, but the response to it so far has been enthusiastic. Awesome on a steak, sprinkled over fish or thrown into a salad... or just snack on it like peanuts. Quite addictive! Happy onward travels. CHRIS & ALY
