When you walk by you are lured in by the amazing smelling samples. We sampled the chipotle, and the garlic and herb both were very fragrant and beautifully balanced. You can use them to cook with or for yummy appetizers laid out with bread and cheese. They also have a variety of spice blends to choose from.
If you want the finest, freshest olive oil you can purchase, Mt. Kofinas is the place to go! Never in my life have I had olive oil that was recently picked and pressed and then shipped directly over from Crete. It's the best olive oil I've had. They carry regular and infused oils, along with their vinegars. I love their white peach vinegar. It works great with pork! They also have recently had an exclusive honey only produced on the island. It's rare that you buy olive oil from the actual family that grows and produces it. It's awesome hearing the owner, Nick Semertzides, tell about his families olive grove in Stavies. He has such an enthusiasm when talking about his products. It's a must visit when at Findlay Market!
I don't normally get to meet the farmer that grew the olives for my Greek Olive Oil, but with Mt. Kofinas their family owns the trees. Super cool!
I just bought the 2nd bottle of the White Peach Balsamic Vinegar! WOW! Just drop a little on your WATERMELON cubes for a dessert!! Guests and family RAVE. Did I say RAVE!?! YES! RAVED ABOUT IT!!!
A whole new taste SENSATION!!! You can thank me later, folks!!
Purchased a sample bottle of basil infused olive oil and a sample bottle of balsamic at a recent flower/patio show and was blown away. I thought all olive oil was the same ... and I was wrong! This is just amazing stuff. Mix them together on a salad and you will never go back to bottled dressings. Just ordered several more bottles to stock up (free shipping too).
My daughter picked up some of their oil in Oxford and it is wonderful. I stopped during a visit in October and sampled the oils and vinegar, needless to say I didn't leave empty handed. Will be giving as gifts to family this Christmas. Delicious!
