How is olive oil made?

Making delicious olive oil is a fairly simple process in theory. Pick fresh olives, crush them, churn the olive puree for a bit and then spin the puree to separate the oil. If you don’t use any heat or chemicals anlong the way, and the olive oil tastes great at the end, you’ve got Extra Virgin Olive Oil! Of course there are many steps along the way that determine the true quality and specific flavor profile, but as long as you’ve got good, fresh olives and treat them with care, you should get EVOO. Check out the videos below for a look inside our process.
