The Seattle based headquarter was started by Darush Dolatabadi-Amiri in 2003 under the name of Persian Saffron Imports. The saffron company quickly gained prestige through its ability to offer high-quality products. This led to an abundance of customer praise and recognition and the company continues to grow. Now known as Cyrus Saffron, the saffron spice is highly sought after by many fine restaurants and establishments around Puget Sound. As they continue to expand nationally the family started growing saffron in Eastern Washington with high-quality saffron harvesting annually. They encourage saffron enthusiasts to purchase products through the website or on Amazon, until you can find them in a store near you.
