Our rich Sweet Allspice grows in cloud forests of Guatemala. Its warming, nuanced flavor is reminiscent of toasted almonds and baked fruitAllspice is the dried berry of a beautiful evergreen tree, and one of the few classic spices indigenous to the new world.

We get our sweet, rich allspice in micro-lots from the cloud forests of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. Our allspice is hand-harvested every October and November and dried. They’re grown on small plots in the cloud forests, where the altitude, high humidity and comparatively low temperatures create ideal conditions for beautiful allspice berries.
