This saffron is of the highest quality with subtle nuanced flavors that are ideal for cooking Bouillabaisse and Tagines. This saffron is sustainably farmed and sourced directly so it is a product that is both delicious and good for farmers and the planet"

    "The Rumi Saffron is so fragrant and intoxicating with a stunning intense floral scent. It has raised the level of quality and sophistication for Saffron. The saffron gives such an incredible hue of amber crimson. I am happy to be supportive of the efforts of Rumi bringing this Saffron to America that has been hand harvested by women using traditional methods from Afghanistan."

Our Mission

The Best Spices are from Afghanistan

Our saffron threads, nurtured by Afghanistan's unique climate and terrain and harvested with care, offer an unmatched depth of flavor, setting them apart from any other.

Afghanistan's diverse landscape, from the soaring Hindu Kush mountains to the arid plains surrounding Herat, provides an ideal environment for cultivating some of the world's most exquisite spices. This land, nurtured by hot, dry winds and a semi-arid climate, yields unparalleled saffron, renowned globally for its high crocin content, vibrant color, and intense flavor. Beyond saffron, Afghanistan's wild foraged spices, including rare varieties like wild black cumin, are a testament to the purity and richness of the land.

At Rumi Spice, we cherish this connection to Afghanistan, not only for the exceptional quality of its spices but also for the opportunity it presents to empower local communities, preserve traditional practices, and foster sustainable economic growth.
