Grown in intense heat and sandy soil at the edge of the Thar Desert, Diaspora’s newest cumin is something special. Most recipes that call for cumin also have coriander. They make great spice partners—this cumin even more so, with its heady base notes of licorice, smoke and even the aroma of fresh rain. It’s a true standout.
Founded in 2017 by Sana Javeri Kadri, Diaspora Co. is a direct trade, single-origin spice company that works to dismantle the longstanding commodity spice trading system by working directly with Indian farmers and in so doing, put money, equity and power in those farmers’ hands.
