Sweeter and spicier than the typical supermarket cinnamon, this Vietnamese heirloom variety will up your baking game. It's also a treat on yogurt or in smoothies.
Burlap & Barrel partners directly with small farms to source single-origin, biodynamically-grown spices.
Why we love it
You probably haven't had this cinnamon before. Grown in the Vietnamese mountains, it's not widely exported or stocked in traditional supermarkets. But oh, it's a sensory delight. Sweeter, spicier, and generally more potent than most cinnamons, you barely need a pinch to enjoy the flavor. Sprinkle it on your baked goods (hello, cakes and pies) or use it as a topping for yogurt, ice cream, and more.
How it does good
Making a positive social impact and a low environmental impact
Burlap & Barrel sources their spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms. They visit each of these farms, spending time with the employees to learn about the economic, social, and environmental implications of their methods. Every decision they make is fueled by their goal to end inequality and exploitation in the food industry. They do this by connecting small farms to high-value markets, educating consumers about the impact of product traceability, and sourcing unique foods that are grown using biodynamic and organic techniques.
