A spice company based out of Somerville now has plans to establish a permanent storefront in Cambridge. Curio Spice Company, which sources spices directly from farmers and toasts them whole before grinding and packaging them into blends, will open a shop on Mass. Ave. near Davis Square, according to Scout Cambridge.
Curio’s founder, Claire Cheney, started the company in 2015 with a goal of providing high-quality, organic, and fair-trade spices to professional chefs and home cooks alike, according to the company’s website. She has spent the last two years growing her business in a shared kitchen at Taza Chocolate and will expand into the space at 2265 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge.
Before now, Cheney has sold spices at farmers markets as well as places such as Sofra Bakery & Cafe, DeLuca’s Market, Cambridge Naturals, and Formaggio Kitchen. The shop could open by the end of October.
