What's Included?

Why We Love it

Our Whole Spice Gift Set is a passport to the heart of Afghanistan's culinary landscape. Every pinch of our floral saffron, every sprinkle of our peppery fennel, and every grain of our citrusy coriander tells a story of the rich soils, traditional farming practices, and the passionate hands that harvested them. And then there's the wild black cumin, with its earthy, piney notes, a true reflection of the wild terrains near the Hindu Kush mountains. To truly appreciate the depth and complexity of these spices, toast them whole and grind them fresh. The transformation in flavor is profound, turning every dish into a gourmet experience.

Social Impact and Women's Empowerment

Our mission extends beyond spices. Every purchase from Rumi Spice plays a vital role in empowering Afghan farmers, fostering sustainable agricultural practices, and supporting the economic growth of local communities. We take pride in creating opportunities and championing the roles of these individuals in their communities.

Central to our ethos is the empowerment of Afghan women. We employ them in various roles, from harvesting to processing various spices. This initiative provides them with direct wages and opportunities, fostering their economic independence and highlighting their invaluable contributions to both Rumi Spice and their communities.

Our Mission

The Best Spices are from Afghanistan

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.
