Cobanero Chili

Burlap & Barrel

$7.99

1.5 oz

Fruity and hot, with a hint of chipotle smokiness, this rare Mayan variety of chili pepper is only grown in the mountains around the city of Cobán in Guatemala. Spicier than a serrano and on par with cayenne, a little goes a long way in flavoring veggies, sauces, marinades, and chilis.

Burlap & Barrel

New York, NY

Burlap & Barrel sources their single origin spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms, bypassing brokers and middlemen who drive prices up and quality down. Founders Ethan Frisch and Ori Zohar visit farms personally and spend time with farmers, learning firsthand about the economic, social, and cultural factors behind their farming methods. Burlap & Barrel then supports these farmers by providing purchase commitments to give greater financial security, sharing knowledge from across their global farmer network, and expanding on-site value-added activities such as sorting, grinding, and packaging to increase farmer revenue. Burlap & Barrel works with their partner farmers to identify unique varietals of spices that are often overlooked by the commodity spice industry – as well as valuable byproducts – to maximize the farms' earnings. Plus, in selling these spices, Burlap and Barrel highlights the areas they come from, bringing attention to sustainability and ecological needs and practices in other parts of the world.
