Diaspora Co.'s Jodhana Cumin is smoky, with the aroma of fresh rain (not kidding!). It pairs perfectly with their Nandini Coriander, balancing out its bright floral notes with the cumin's heady base notes. Grown in the scorching high temps of the Thar Desert, it's the fruit of intense heat and sandy desert soil.
The Vishoi family has been farming cumin organically for the last five years in the district of Jodhpur. The Jodhana Cumin is grown alongside groundnuts, wheat, and fenugreek, and farmed using vermicomposting, natural pest repellent, and fermented fertilizers. Mangilal Vishoi's dream is to build a resource center to provide bio inputs to other farmers and help grow the regenerative movement!
