We are pleased that we are able to offer you these absolutely wonderful unfiltered California olive oils. These olive oils complement well our premium quality Greek olive oils and allow us to provide you with more choices when it comes to quality olive oil. These oils are generally stronger in flavor than both our gourmet and our organic Greek extra virgin olive oils. If you like therefore stronger tasting olive oil, or if you generally appreciate quality olive oil, you will love these products.
Since these oils are made from a number of olive varieties
that are cultivated in California, they represent a broad range of tastes and flavors that will be definitely
appreciated by those who love olive oil. Each variety has its own distinct taste and flavor. The origins of these varieties are generally from Spain and Italy and therefore these olive oils will have more in common with Spanish and Italian olive oils than with Greek olive.
These olive oils are all cold-pressed and unfiltered. The olive paste is never heated above 75 Degrees Fahrenheit during the production process. This is basically room temperature. Although this relatively low temperature results in lower yield, it also preserves the nutritional and antioxidant value of the oil and results in a very tasty and high quality olive oil.
These olive oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure olive juice of the highest quality available. Again, they are stronger in taste than our Greek olive oils but they are trully quality oils. They are not mixed, blended or altered in any way with lower quality products as is often the case with olive oil found in the marketplace. The free oleic acidity of these olive oils is always below 0.5%, and quite often in the 0.2% range which is basically as low as it gets.
The cultivation and production methods used to produce these oils have been inspected and approved by our personnel. We have taken the time to visit the farms, to talk to farmers, to visit the olive mills and to insure that we bring you the highest quality California olive oil available. As a result, these oils carry the same 100% satisfaction money back guarantee that we offer with our Greek olive oil. We can provide this guarantee simply because we do not buy these olive oils in the open olive oil market. We buy them directly from the farmers. This means that there are no intermediaries involded and therefore we can absolutely guarantee the quality of the product.
By purchasing these olive oils, you are also supporting the Californian olive farmers and the superb work that they do in a relatively tough and highly competitive environment.
