Hand-picked by Afghan women in the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains, Wild Black Cumin is a bit earthier and mellower than grocery-store versions. Its flavor is remarkably well rounded compared to the bitter harsh flavor of raw cumin from grocery stores. Because it is foraged from the wild, this cumin has unique flavor characteristics and a more concentrated flavor from its native terroir.
Founded in 2015 by a team of U.S. Army veterans who served in Afghanistan, Rumi Spice partners with more than 350 small village farmers to source hard-to-find Afghan spices. The company has provided jobs for more than 3,700 women and works to boost local agricultural economies. Every step of production, from harvesting to packaging in BPA-free glass bottles, is done in Afghanistan so that locals receive their fair share of the profits.
