Spanish Saffron in Glass

One of the world's most treasured spices

Quick Overview:

Safinter is synonymous with premium saffron. Not all saffron products are equal! Accept nothing less.

Quick Facts

Origin: Spain
Unit Size: 1 g.

The Flavor Experience

Safinter has been commercializing saffron for over a century and their techniques remain true to their original methods. Because saffron is so delicate, all harvesting is done very gently by hand. Safinter handpicks their saffron at dawn and only during October when the Crocus flower is in full bloom. The whole process - from selection to harvesting to packaging - is carefully executed by hand. As evidence of their premium quality, you can see that, in the Safinter bottle, the saffron filaments remain joined at the base and display only a consistent, bright red color. Certified ISO top quality.

The Story

Safinter is one of the world's oldest and largest producers of Spanish spices that hail from the La Mancha region. Since 1912, the Gonzalez family has sold top-grade saffron from Albacete, a Spanish city in this famous area that has become famous for its superior quality saffron. They export their handcrafted products to gourmet markets all over the world.

Usage Tips

For the best results preparing rice, potatoes or pasta, first crush some saffron threads in a mortar or mash the threads with a spoon on parchment paper. Then, soak the crushed saffron in warm water for about 20 minutes. Add the saffron and water solution to a pot of heated stock, then add the rice, potatoes or pasta. For sauces or reductions, add the crushed saffron directly to the liquid and shake vigorously.
