Ave Costa is a producer of raw organic* olive oil.
Our family-owned farm is located 300 meters from the Ionian Sea, where the exceptional quality of soil interacts with the unique microclimate of the region.
Each year in the first days of November, we collect the olive crops using a traditional labor-intence process, and transfer them in the same day to local industrial facilities, equiped with the latest Swedish stainless steal machinery, for cold press olive oil extraction.
This process is engineered to ensure the minimum degree of fermentation, and superior nutrient and acidity profile well above the minimum requirements for "extra vergin" olive oil. Having end-to-end control over the cultivation, extraction, and bottling process, we are excited to bring this premium "single malt" to the conscious consumner.
Organic certification from an EU-accredited certifying agent is a 3-year process, and will be granted in 2021
Single variety "Koroneiki" olives.
Manual harvesting before they reach full maturity.
Same day transport, maximum 24 hours until extraction. Industrial machinery from Alfa Laval.
