Our extra virgin olive oil is always made from the first cold pressing.
Mt. Kofinas’s all-natural, pure extra virgin olive oil begins with olives hand gathered at their peak for maximum flavor. The olives are cold pressed (not chemically extracted) within only a few hours after harvest to assure superior taste and low acidity. Any oil below 1% acidity level qualifies as “extra virgin,” but Mt. Kofinas’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil has an acidity level between .2% and .4%. This is another reason why Mt. Kofinas stands out as a premium quality olive oil.
The result is a healthy olive oil with a distinct natural green color and a distinct, full flavor with grassy, fruity notes, and none of the bitterness seen in lower quality olive oils.
We assure you that our olive oil is not diluted or mixed with any other oil, before being imported directly from the village of Stavies to the United States. It comes directly from our grandparents’ groves, is pressed, and sent directly to our family in the United States. We guarantee our single source, so you can trust that it’s a quality olive oil. We are proud to offer this quality product directly from our family’s olive groves and are confident that you will enjoy the taste and richness as much as we do.
