Leafy-Green and Grassy

 
If you harvest and press olives early in the season, when they're still somewhat green, you'll produce a robust and peppery oil, full of pungency and a higher percentage of healthful anti-inflammatory attributes such as polyphenols (antioxidants).  

The certified extra virgin olive oils below will hit the back of your throat with a peppery, grassy aftertaste.  This is why they are often referred to as a "two-cough" oil.  

Use our robust and pungent oils on your stronger dishes, the flavor will come through.  Ideal as a way to really perk up a fresh baguette, pasta, pizza, or to add a definite zing to grilled vegetables or poultry.
