Rice farming was brought to the wetlands of the Spanish Mediterranean coast by the Arab invasion of 711. Today, Spain is only second to Italy in rice production in Europe. Calasparra is well known in Spain and worldwide and was the first rice to be awarded with the Denomination of Origin, a guarantee of the finest quality.

Calasparra is the quality identification for the southernmost rice growing area between Murcia-which borders in the north with the Valencian community and in the south with eastern Andalusia and Albacete in Castile-La Mancha. There are thousands of rice varieties in the world and they are categorized by grain length. Our Calasparra rice is a short-grained rice. Short-grained rice is also called pearl rice because the center of the grain has a white mark that contains extra starch. The pearl flavors the other ingredients and absorbs the stock.

Bomba is the very best Calasparra from Murcia. The grain is smaller than our other Calasparra varieties, it retains its body and bite while absorbing three times its volume in liquid and expands in width rather than length. More difficult to grow than other varieties, bomba can be hard to find in the U.S. and even in Spain. It might cost a little more, but your paellas will be perfect every time.

Bomba Rice
Makes for delicious paella
By Arizona Rose
from Show Low, AZ
on Oct 21, 2013
Perfect every time
What can I say? Without the proper rice, paella isn't paella. This Bomba rice absorbs the flavorful liquid so well, while still maintaining its structure. It also helps form a beautiful and flavorful socarrat (bottom crust).

Delivered as promised
This rice was pretty good and expanded quite a bit. My only reservation about the proportions listed on the box, 3 cups of liquid to 1 cup of rice. That portion turned out to be a little to generous as I also sauteed the rice in fresh sofrito, so next time I will use a 2 to 1 ratio of warm liquid and see what happens.

Bomba Calasparra Rice
Great choice for making paella in an open pan. I was able to cook all the rice and not burn the bottom layer, it all cooked evenly. Great taste, which was partially my doing!

Excellent Bomba Calasparra Rice
Liked everything about this rice. Will buy/use it for Spanish paella always.

Good Rice
Perfect for Paella. Absorbs the right amount of broth without getting soft. This is wonderful stuff. Better than Jasmine for Paella. Not as good as Vialone Nano for Risotto but it still makes a good Risotto. Just not quite as creamy.

Perfect for paella and risotto.
I've used this rice at both a paella party and for a risotto dinner. My friends raved about it both times!
