This superior quality organic saffron is hand collected in Kozani, Greece. Saffron from the region carries the EU PDO designation (Protected Designation of Origin) due to its particularly high-quality color and flavor. Kozani Saffron (also known as Krokos Kozanis) gives dishes a delicate aroma, a subtle spicy flavor, and a beautiful yellow color. Using Krokos Kozanis saffron is like using an expensive perfume; a little bit has an incredible effect, and it should be used sparingly.
Kozani saffron has a guaranteed coloring strength of 230, on the saffron grading scale which ranges from 80 to 250.
Saffron has an amazing ability to add intriguing flavor and color to a variety of dishes, ranging from breads, pastas, rice, and even sweets. A little goes a long way—you rarely need more than pinch or two. To extract the flavor and color, try steeping the fronds in a little water or cooking before adding to your dish. Saffron is very high in antioxidants, so I also enjoy adding a pinch to my herbal teas for an added boost of flavor and nutrition.

Greek saffron?! How wonderful. Delighted.
Most beautiful saffron I have ever seen
This is the most beautiful and deeply colored and fragrant saffron I have ever used. It makes my expensive Spanish saffron look a little pale. Even the cooking odor makes me feel like I am on a mountain in Ikaria.
Excellent easy ordering and quick delivery. Very nice subtle taste in rice and quinoa.
