A certified B Corp, Rumi Spice was founded by a team of US military veterans looking to bring top-quality, sustainably farmed saffron to customers around the world. Among the most prized spices in the world, saffron has a complex flavor that is both semi-sweet and slightly bitter. Also known as Red Gold, saffron comes from the interior of the amethyst-colored saffron crocus and must be hand-harvested due to its fragility.
Rumi sources saffron from local Afghan farms and employs more than 1900 women in Herat, Afghanistan to hand-harvest the delicate crimson stigmas of the flowers. You’ll savor this coveted spice even more knowing this product is helping catalyze rural economic development and much needed job creation.
