sweeter // brighter // better for farmers
We are excited to announce the launch of our new Nicaraguan Turmeric, sourced with our friends at Burlap & Barrel. Our mission is to establish relationships with farmers, increase supply cycle transparency, and bring more attention to the quality of spices.
Botanical name: Curcuma longa
Origin: Guirruca, Nicaragua
Harvest date: February & March 2019
Processing: hand-picked, cold water washed, sun-dried
Farm type: Single farm
Health: 7.92% curcumin
Directly traded from a single farm in Guirruca, Nicaragua. We pay farmers a higher price than the commodity market, which means more money in the hands of the growers.
We maintain transparency along a short supply cycle: we know the farmers, the growing conditions of the spice, and the wages paid to the people involved.
Higher quality than your typical commodity turmeric, Our Diriamban Turmeric is grown without pesticides and is certified organic. Freshly harvested twice a year, it’s hand-picked, cold water washed & sun-dried, delivered to use whole and ground in house per batch.
Health forward - 4x the curcumin level of your average turmeric. Curcumin = the good stuff. It’s anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and aids in digestion.
