SF Source: Berbere?

Two weeks ago the NYTimes Magazine had an article about the next big flavors by the brothers Lee.

Marcus Samuelsson of Aquavit in NYC suggested that an Ethiopina brick-red in color, sun dried chili based spice was the next big thing. It's a combination of red chilies similar to serranos, toasted ginger, cardamom, garlic, fenugreek and cinnamon. Best used as a rub on chicken, duck, fish. It sounds amazing.

Was wondering if anyone knew of a SF source for this spice.

Article is no longer available online or I'd link it.

I'd prefer to buy it locally but if there's an online source I'll do it. Maybe a good Ethiopian local restaurant?

Moving well into obsessed-level with this mission, thanks!
