Yecora Rojo, a favorite of West Coast artisan sourdough bakers (i.e. Tartine) was developed by the International Maize & Wheat Improvement Center in Cooperation with the Mexican ministry of Agriculture in Mexico.

It was first received in California in 1970. Yecora Rojo is a standout performer for bread making; it is texturally smooth and lightweight, while exuding buttery and creamy flavors that enhance the end results of any baked item. Out of all the varietals we offer, Yecora Rojo is a Mill favorite, and staff pick!

    Beautiful flour. Made delicious sourdough. Tried the 00 think I’ll try regular next time for a heartier bread. Looking forward to trying other flours

    Amazing Pasta Flour

    We made ravioli out of the 00 flour and it was WAY better than anything else we've used. It revolutinized the whole process!

    Waiting for proof, but it's all good.

    Ordered multiple items, but haven't gotten to use the YRojo yet. My old house is too cold for good fermentation temps, so am waiting for proofing box my better half gave me for Christmas to arrive. Would love to review, but can't yet.
    Can say products seem to be top shelf quality and customer service is positively responsive. Baked a cake w/the Premium AP 00 flour and was pleased w/results. Looking forward to my first loaves w/ the Yecora Roja, & many more! Also, love the video lessons:most encouraging. Best wishes for 2021 & thanks again Barton Springs Mill!

    The flour is incredible! The bread we’ve baked was delicious and testy!

    Excellent for sourdough!

    I’ve been using this for sourdough pizza crusts and they turn out awesome!

    New pizza staple

    I'll never be able to make pizza without this flour ever again. It was so easy to work with, and there were more subtle flavors than I even knew what to do with. I found myself using fewer toppings so I could taste the dough more (and up until now pizza dough was just a vehicle for toppings).
