There is nowhere else I'll go

There is nowhere else I'll go for olive oil. It's super fresh, labeled with the harvest date and the free fatty acid percentage, so you know how high the temperature can get before the oil starts to smoke. I've found you can get these oils hotter than with lesser quality olive oil. Also, they provide the polyphenol count, which I love because I go for maximum antioxidants in my diet. You can sample everything and they bottle it for you depending on what size you want. My husband and I have been going there religiously about every other month for the last 2-1/2 years, and it's so fun to try new oils as they come in. They really range in flavors: grassy, earthy, fruity, tropical, spicy, bitter. I haven't loved them all, but I do love how wildly different they can be. The store also carries balsamic vinegars, most of which are infused with different flavors. I recommend the espresso, which is so good, I sometimes just pour it into a spoon and drink it. Or like a normal person, I use it in marinades or mixed with a little sugar to macerate berries.
