Calasparra Paella Rice


This high quality Calasparra rice is the perfect rice for paella and all sorts of other Spanish rice dishes. This variety (balilla x sollana) is highly absorbent taking up approximately 2.5 times its weight in liquid, so it can really show off the flavour of a good stock.

It is produced by Cooperativa de la Virgen de Esperanza, which consists of 160 small local cultivators of rice, in the village of Calasparra in Murcia, on Spain's Mediterranean coast. This rice is cultivated on the Moorish built river terraces where the fields are irrigated by the clean, fast running waters of the rivers Segura and Mundo.
