Cumin Seed, Ground

Believe it or not, all cumin is not the same. Our Michelin star chef customers across the country agree. While they can get cumin a little cheaper from other sources, they choose to pay a bit more for ours. 

Why? Because our cumin is incredibly fresh and aromatic. My partner Divakar sources the best in small lots, we bring it in direct, and sell it quickly.

(BTW, this is the ground version of our cumin seed. We also sell whole cumin seed in a couple of sizes.)

But be warned. When you open a tube, you might be susceptible to having some of the following immediate reactions:

You might immediately notice fragrant notes of lemon and mint.

You might immediately want to cook an Indian, Mexican or Middle Eastern dish.

You might immediately want to learn more about cumin. So you might look up "cumin" on Wikipedia and see that cumin is the dried seed of a plant from the parsley family. That might remind you of the late, great Elvis Parsley. I mean Presley. 

You might immediately yell aloud: "Cumin get it!"

I’ve been cooking with sawdust!

Woah! So fragrant and nuanced are these seeds. Compared to these seeds, my old cheap cumin now smells and tastes like dust.
The seeds are also easy to toast and easy to grind in the smallest Milton Modern Mortar & Pestle. I love toasting/grinding them with coriander to make my dishes pop!

My new source for spice

The cumin is robust and fragrant, and the packaging is lovely. Super easy transaction and shipping. This may well be my new source for spices.

Best speices I've ever tried!

I haven't used the cloves yet but the speices I did try are phenomenal. (I am sure the cloves will be as good) One thing that really blew my mind was the cumin seeds. The aroma is strong but clear and accentuated by the minty and lemony hints. Will definitely come back for more.

Great spices!

I have purchased several different spices and they have all been so fresh, fragrant and flavorful. Love this company!

All worth it

I received the pepper blend, cumin, and tikka masala. The difference between grocery-bought and this is no comparison. So much more flavor!
