Sēti means ‘female’ or ‘woman’ in Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia, and this blend celebrates two women-owned co-ops where many of the spices in this blend come from. Our berbere is medium hot and deeply flavorful - an iconic blend for making Ethiopian cuisine. Use it for stews, meats and veggies.
