Announcing the newest addition to our product family!


Paprika and Spices

Great products are very hard to find – it took Khayyan two years to find this one!  We’re very proud to introduce the newest addition to our product list: Sweet and Hot Smoked Paprika.

You’ve tasted smoked paprika before but we’re confident you’ve never tasted anything like this paprika that we found in La Vera.  Why?  I’m glad you asked.

The cultivation of peppers for paprika was introduced in La Vera in the sixteenth century by the San Jeronimo monks of the Yuste monastery. Our paprika is a direct descendant of the original Yuste spice, and is obtained by grinding mature ripe and dried peppers and then gently smoking them over oak.

This centuries old process generates sufficient heat to dehydrate and smoke the pepper perfectly giving this exquisite Smoked Paprika its unique aroma and flavor profile as well as its vibrant deep red color.
