Experience

Amazingly fresh spices. I love that they have a recipe developer in-house who is always sharing delicious recipes. On a 35,000 ft level, I also love that they have thought about every aspect - 1. fair trade (paying farmers and their employees really well) 2. only working with farmers that have regenerative practices (no chemicals, replenishing soil, etc) 3. recyclable packaging 4. treating their team and their customers well 5. and, of course, product!

Not a tumeric expert so can't judge the quality too critically (though it's nice), but overall, I like the mission of the company and the look of their products.

Feedback

As others have mentioned, the price is a bit on the higher end (though not unexpected).

They really are high quality spices, and I love supporting farmers and avoiding the notoriously exploitative spice trade. That said, I wish they had more 'basic' spices and offered more options to someone who isn't cooking Indian food every day. That and smaller sizes would be nice, because it's hard to go through that much of any one thing!

Feedback

Maybe I'm too particular but I wish all of the jars were the same size, to make organization easier. I also wish they'd sell or at least recommend a spice grinder.

So happy to see brands like this emerging. Raising awareness about the spice trade, fair pay, quality, etc, Diaspora has done so much more than offering amazing spices. I've tried the Cardamom pods and turmeric, and I have to say, you can taste the difference in quality! I love that Diaspora educates and does storytelling so well. They also come up with new/different products quite often, so keep your eyes peeled!

Feedback

It would be great to see more of a consistent variety of spices- as many of these, I use more sporadically.

I regularly use their turmeric for cooking, and it really blooms well with black pepper. I cook a lot of Indian food, and it truly is worth the price. I would love to try the other spices, but the steep price point is limiting.

Feedback

While I understand that the spices are ethically sourced and the brand does a great job of price transparency, I find it hard to pay $12 for spices that I am not using regularly.

High quality, purpose driven company, with a badass team behind it. Yes, these spices are more expensive, but they're fresh, so you don't have to use as much as other spices that have gone stale. Every spice/herb I've tried of theirs is through the roof incredible.
