Ethiopian Berberé is a hot and flavorful mix of more than a dozen ingredients.  It can be used as a dry or wet rub on roasted meats or tofu.  Add it to stews and sauces for a bold and full flavor profile.  Subtle flavored dishes such as beans, lentils and potatoes will be transformed into a true delight.  This is a hot spice which can be used judiciously or with recklessness depending on your mood.

    I have been using this blend of spices for some time now for making meatballs (veal, lamb or mix of both) and it is just delicious. I just add some salt, parsley, scallion and garlic...

    Intense Flavor!

    I used this to make Ethiopian Spice Chicken Stew from Eating Well. Their recipe called for 5 table spoons of this spice! Luckily I experimented with one and half and it had tremendous flavor and still and a slow heat. I have also tried the British Curry and love both products so far!

    Love It!

    I love this spice and especially that it is organic. I made the roasted butternut squash soup that was on the label and it is delicious; though I used 1 Tbs instead of 2 of the spice blend and that was the perfect heat for me.
    Love your company. I'm very happy to find such a nice selection of organic spices.

    I usually don't like much heat but this blend is a mind-changer. The vegetarian recipe I use it in is now one of my favorites.

    Nice Heat

    I used the Ethiopian Berbere to make Doro Wat (ethiopian chicken stew). It tasted good but nothing like the Doro Wat that an ethiopian lady made for me when I was visiting in the Middle East. I did enjoy the dish though. I will order it again - nice heat.

    I'm Ethiopian. "Ethiopian Berbere spice by Teeny Tiny Spice Co. is NOT Ethiopian flavor - not even close!

    Posted by Helen on 5th Dec 2014

    I was excited looking forward to tasting the spice in organic form. A good thought / idea, but this is certainly nothing even close to the original taste of our authentic spice.I'm Ethiopian - I know! Makes me wonder where on earth they got the idea that it was.

    As a spice on it's own is ok. But call it something else. It's actually offensive to me that it's said to be Ethiopian Berbere when it's not even close. A real disappointment.


    Hi Helen,

    We are sorry that you are disappointed, and that you are offended. We post all of the comments that we receive. If your intention was to provide us with constructive feedback, we just wish you said it in a nicer way. We are a very small company with a human face and we work very hard at what we do.

    We developed this blend based on thorough research of current and older cookbooks and recipe sources of Ethiopian Berberé spices from Ethiopian and African authors. We actually have several repeat customers from Ethiopia, who tell us that our Ethiopian Berberé tastes just like home.

    As with all ethnic/traditional blends, there are many variations...perhaps as many as there are cooks! We cannot match all of these different variations in one blend, but we do our best to stay true to each cuisine. It would be like someone trying to make a single spice blend to represent "American Barbecue" are not going to match everybody's idea of what Barbecue flavor is.

    Best Wishes,
    Ed & Thora

    Great Taste

    Posted by Angie Anderson on 30th Sep 2014

    I've never tried Ethiopian Berbere before, and bought this to use in a recipe, as it is not a readily available spice blend in my local stores. It had a great flavor, and a nice even heat. I think it would be great to use as a rub. The packaging of the product was very nice and they included a packet of a different seasoning (harissa) that I'm looking forward to trying as well.

    Wonderful flavour

    I have used this spice mixture in both traditional dishes that would use this spice as well as a seasoning on pork roasts. It just adds such a great "pop" of taste!
