Olivier Rœllinger's words

C5 Alba Special cinnamon is very rare and difficult to source. Its flavor is very subtle and even more delicate than C5 cinnamon. C5 Alba Special is also less sweet than C5-grade cinnamon. 

Ceylon cinnamon contains Cinamic acid, which gives it a flavour that is both deep and refined. True cinnamon has a very characteristic taste, which is pleasant, warm and intense.


Like Pétrus and Yquem wines, this little stick of Alba is quite likely the best cinnamon that the world has to offer. It comes from very young, fine bark that teems with fresh-flowing sap. The quill rolls up in the sun from one single shaving, despite that for even the highest grade of C5 cinnamon the producers are allowed to assimilate several layers together to make the sticks.

Sri Lanka is a spice island paradise, especially when it comes to cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) is, in fact, native to Sri Lanka. We source our cinnamon from organic growers in the center and the Southeast regions of Sri Lanka. After the first cinnamon branches are harvested, the outer bark is removed to reveal the sub-bark which is the most fragrant. Peeling off the bark is an art. Each step must be performed by hand because no machinery could accomplish the task with such precision; the result is like a sculpture. Few growers in Sri Lanka have the skill to produce precious C5 and C5 Alba grade cinnamon.
