One of several spices in the ginger family called black cardamom, korerima grows wild throughout Eastern Africa. Cultivated extensively in Ethiopia where it is used in many fundamental spice blends, korerima is similar to green cardamom, but with deeper flavor and notes of smokiness. We are proud to source this directly from a women’s farming coop in Bonga, Ethiopia. Try in coffee, on citrus fruit, or in stews!
