Rumi Spice saffron packs big flavor in just a small pinch. 1 gram is enough for 74 dishes of paella, and you'll only need 8-12 threads when cooking rice or risotto. It's that potent. Warm, nuanced, and a little sweet, use it to add deep flavor and bright colour to your dishes.

Rumi brings ethically sourced spices from Afghanistan in order to boost rural economic development and bring new jobs to Afghan farmers.

Separate the glass jar and metal lid and recycle both in a curbside bin. The plastic tamper seal is recyclable through TerraCycle by following our special instructions.
These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

How it does good

Connecting Afghan farmers to the global market

Over 80% of the population in Afghanistan depends on the rural agricultural economy. With this in mind, Rumi strives to build demand for Afghan spices and create a global supply chain. The success of the spice industry brings jobs to farmers and the women who harvest and process the spices. By empowering Afghan farmers and building out the country's agricultural infrastructure, Rumi directly impacts Afghanistan's economic development.
