Spicy & Sweet Berbere Packs a Punch

What is Berbere?

The backbone of Ethiopian and Eritrean cooking, Berbere is a spice blend that encompasses the beautiful and distinctive flavor of the North African region. Spicy, peppery, and mildly sweet, our Ethiopian Berbere packs some serious flavor.

How to use it

Use this flavor-packed blend to complement the inherent sweetness of any pork dish, or craft a traditional Ethiopian creation like Doro wot (Ethiopia's version of curry). Sprinkle some on roasted vegetables or whisk into olive oil for a spicy dry rub on beef, chicken or whole grilled fish.

Yummy spices, great customer service

I ordered two spices for myself, Berbere and Saffron. Both arrived within two days' time. I had mistakenly not included an eligible discount in my order ( technology idiot that I am), contacted customer service. The problem was addressed and the discount was added very quickly. I am impressed with the great service and grateful to have had such a good experience. Spices arrived well wrapped and protected in the shipping box. The berbere is delicious, the saffron threads made a great saffron rice. The website has useful tips and recipes, too! Thanks!

Good stuff

I hadn't cooked with berbere before and it was a very tasty experience akin to an Indian food taste. I came in about 2 days after I ordered it.
