  • Buy now for free shipping and immediate despatch


For centuries the Calasparra region of Spain has been famous for cultivation of high absorbtion short grain rice varieties.  Irrigated with pure mountain water fed from aqueducts first built by the Romans, Calasparra rice has a long maturation resulting in a dehydrated grain with superior absorbtion properties.  

This short grain rice of Calasparra is produced by the Cooperativa del Campo in Spain, and available for you to buy now on Saffrondust. 

This offer includes 2 x 1kg cloth bags of Calasparra rice totaling 2 kilograms and includes free shipping anywhere in Australia.  

Generally available only in specialist delicatessens and grocers, it is almost impossible to buy authentic Calasparra rice in Woolworths or Coles.  

For an authentic paella, a good paella rice is a key ingredient.  Substituting another type of rice will result in a paella with the wrong qualities.  Arborio rice for example is meant to be creamy, Asian rice is meant to be sticky, and a long grain rice such as basmati is meant to be fragrant.  A good short grain paella rice, however, will result in individual al dente grains which don't stick together, each having absorbed upward of 2x their own weight in delicious broth.  

Short grain rice has less of a rice flavour compared to long grain rice (eg Basmati), but instead absorbs all the wonderful flavours from the recipe when cooking, making it a great rice for stock absorbtion and perfect for cooking paella. 

Your rule of thumb when cooking paella is 100g of rice per person, so this 2 kilogram rice offer will result in around 20 serves.  



Saffrondust's rice of Calasparra is free delivery to Australian addresses, but does not ship overseas.
