Our Organic Greek extra virgin olive oil is cold pressed from early harvest olives, called “agourelio” in Greek, which means the olives are collected when green and raw.
The higher chlorophyll content in unripe olives makes the oil greener and richer in healthy polyphenols.
Olive oil must have a polyphenol content of 55mg/kg to be considered Extra Virgin.
Martha Stewart writes "One whiff and you almost imagine you're walking through the olive groves. Taste it and it's so fresh it almost burns the back of your throat, which is thanks in part to the more than 500 milligrams per kilogram of polyphenols that occur naturally in this olive oil. (Most olive oils have about 55 milligrams per kilogram.)"
MindBodyGreen says Kosterina has "the most robust taste" of any they've tried.
Aromatic, light, rich fruity flavor with a buttery finish.
Our olives are of the Koroneiki variety. They are grown and cold pressed on the island of Crete.
