Saffron comes from the
Arabic za’faran. It has been known since antiquity in the Eastern
Mediterranean. It was first brought to Spain in
the 8th century by the Arabs.
Saffron is considered to be the world’s most expensive spice. During various periods, Saffron has been worth more than its weight in gold.
For thousands of years Saffron has been linked to beauty, elegance and good taste. The warm, spicy, exotic, sweet aroma of Saffron has perhaps the most unique signature comparable to none other.
