A must have saffron.

Honey Ice Cream - Made with the highest quality saffron from @herayspice, you can enjoy it on its own or with any number of our pastries here I enjoyed it with a Cardamom Almond Cake.



Been perfecting this fragrant rice dish with saffron from Herat, a far western province in Afghanistan where women rise before dawn to harvest crocus flowers.

But Salehi’s business model isn’t just about sourcing high quality saffron. “One of the biggest aspects of my company is helping farmers in Afghanistan. Because farmers need a lot of attention here. They are the ones who get the least amount of money in the cycle,”

Heray Spice imports saffron from a cooperative of 25 farming families from two villages in Herat Province. Salehi knows them all personally, and his company pays on average $400-$500 more per kilo than local traders.
