A check of the quick ref shows chufa to be Cyperus exculentus sativa and the 
"nuts" to be nutlike tubers.


Sorry, I believed chufas were a local name for almonds! I tried to buy
horchata in Alicante two weeks ago, in the end of April, and all
stores and bars turned me off saying: "it's too ealy, come back in
Summer". Alicante is in the Valencia province, south of Valencia.
