Online sources for quality saffron

durhamois | Feb 7, 201508:17 AM     13

Over the past few months, I have cooked with saffron from Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, A Southern Season (a large specialty food store in Chapel Hill, NC), and my regular grocery store. I find I am getting wildly different results in terms of flavor and color using saffron from these different sources. Can anyone offer a recommendation as to an online source for the highest quality saffron threads available? And for comparison's sake, what are some recommendations for the best value in saffron (i.e., the best quality for a moderate price)?
