Rumi Saffron

On sunny days in the fall you'll find Rumi's farmers dotting the Afghan fields of purple crocuses. For two weeks they pick from these flowers the crimson stigma which, when dried, turns into the coveted Rumi saffron. Prized for its honey-hay-like flavor and golden orange color, saffron transforms rice into paella, fish soup into bouillabaise and pork into golden ham.

Named after the 13th-century Persian poet, Jalal al-Din Rumi, Rumi Spice partners with Afghan farmers to bring top-quality, sustainably farmed saffron to customers around the world. Started by a team of US military veterans, Rumi began with a mission to cultivate peace in Afghanistan. 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. Committed to empowering Afghan women and bolstering the country’s economy, Rumi reinvests back into agricultural and manufacturing infrastructure.
