MILL & MORTAR Ananda's Cinnamon
Real C5 quality cinnamon – delicate and aromatic from cinnamon farmer Ananda in Sri Lanka.
Mill & Mortar only sells real cinnamon from Sri Lanka (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) – simply because it tastes better. True cinnamon – great quality, great taste – has a sweet, warm taste and a delicate wafting aroma. All real cinnamon is hand-cut as opposed to Kassia cinnamon, which can be processed mechanically. In Sri Lanka, cinnamon harvesting is a recognised craftsmanship, often inherited in the family. Ananda’s Cinnamon and ALBA cinnamon are the highest qualities in real cinnamon and are derived from the thinnest and most aromatic pieces of inner tree bark. Only the most skilled and experienced cutters produce cinnamon of Mill & Mortar quality. Machine-cut Cassia cinnamon from Sri Lanka can be identified by looking at the ends that appear like tight-rolled cigars and that crumble between the fingers.

Concept & philosophy
The purpose of Mill & Mortar in all its simplicity is to tell the many amazing stories about spices and to provide the inspiration and the ingredients to spice up your food. We select most of our spices according to a principle we call ‘Product of Origin’, which means we are looking for:
1. Spices that look, smell and taste like when they were harvested.
2. Spices with an origin. We know when and how they are grown and harvested. We like to ensure that the process is sustainable; that the resources of the soil are not depleted, and that humans, animals or other ecosystems remain unharmed.
3. Unique products that can tell a story about people who work hard to create something unique.
The quality of the spice is paramount – we want our consumers to be inspired to use raw, organic products that enrich their lifestyle while looking good on the kitchen shelf.
