Green or early harvest oil is the first juice extracted from the youngest, greenest olives or olives in veraison. It is a high quality oil obtained through a mechanical process of first cold extraction at less than 27ºC and, as we said before,from green olives from the early harvest.

The objective of this type of extraction is to avoid altering its flavor and properties, obtaining anoil with its maximum content of polyphenols and natural antioxidants beneficial to health. These first cold-pressed or, more correctly, cold-extracted oils are the healthiest extra virgin olive oils.

This early harvest product is characterized both by its more bitter and spicy taste and by its extraordinary aromas, flavors and nuances. These characteristics that achieve the fruity flavor are essential characteristics of the best extra virgin olive oils and are obtained thanks to the harvesting of green olives obtained during the early harvest in October.
