 > Spanish Coupe - $12.75/gram
 > Spanish Mancha - $10.75/gram, $139.00/ounce

What is the difference between these two? Are "Coupe" and "Mancha"  
different regions in Spain? Or are these referring to different grades  
of saffron?

I saw a mention earlier of Iranian vs. Spanish saffron. How are these  
different? Is there some reason, other than political ones, that I  
might one type instead of the other?
