Our exquisite single variety and single estate organic extra virgin olive oil is produced from the famous “Koroneiki” olive on the south coast of Cyprus. Organic production methods are used for this smooth olive oil, without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. The olives are handpicked and taken directly to the olive mill only a few miles away, where they are cold pressed during the same day of harvest. Only one pressing of the olives occurs, unlike some mass produced oils which are re-pressed multiple times in order to extract as much as possible. This causes the acidity to rise and results in much lower quality, flavour and nutrition in the oil. The olive oil is bright green in colour and very aromatic. It has a fresh fruity flavour with a slight peppery finish on the palate.

 

Handpicking our olives means we pay greater attention to the olives that are used in the production of our olive oil. This is important as we only select the olives that will give our extra virgin olive oil the best flavour, and leave behind any that may be rotten or not yet ripe for pressing. Another benefit of handpicking is the care that is taken when plucking the olives from the tree, unlike mechanical methods that bruise the olives during harvest and causes the oil to become more acidic.

 

It is best used raw over fish, vegetables and fresh salads as the main ingredient of a Mediterranean salad dressing. The fresh flavour also makes this great as a bread dipper.

About The Producer

MELLONA

 

On their blossoming farm on the south coast of Cyprus, Mellona crafts its totally natural products. Surrounded by citrus, olive groves and vineyards, the unique climate and soil characteristics of this land means Mellona is able to produce agricultural products of exceptional quality.

 

They believe that nature is the perfect food producer. Food, as made by nature, may not have the best shape or the most tempting colour or may not be able to keep for a long time. It surely has though the best flavour and it is perfect for its purpose: to give the body the nutrients it needs in the most effective way.

 

They also know that nature is nature-friendly. Keeping the production process as natural as possible results in a lower impact on the environment. So natural, organic, raw foods are not only good for you, but also for the planet.

 

Mellona strongly believe in the notable Mediterranean diet. For them, it’s not just a vague idea but a real guide for developing their products and recipes. In every Mellona jar or bottle, you will find food as close to what nature produced as possible. You’ll also find a bit of sun and Mediterranean aura.
