Our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is "an essential natural fruit juice extract,” a must in every kitchen. Truly RAW and absolutely pure, it exceeds the highest standards in the industry, outperforming "cold-pressed" and "extra virgin" olive oils on every measure of quality, flavor, and nutrition.
This exquisite organic olive oil is made on one of Peru's first organic farms and extracted from a unique strain of hand-picked olive. Truly cold-pressed in a traditional, slow process that never exceeds 70° F, this rich artisan oil is decanted (instead of being vacuum filtered) to protect its rich flavor and aroma. This process also protects the oil’s powerful nutrients, especially its nourishing fatty acids and heart-healthy polyphenols.
It's a difference you will taste: a balance of sweet, buttery notes with the satisfying spice of real olive polyphenols.

Truly Raw Heirloom Olives
Every olive is manually harvested and pitted. Table olives are cured with traditional "lacto-fermentation," using only sea salt and local spring water (instead of the fast, cheap & toxic chemical methods used in the modern olive industry). However olives grown specifically for olive oil production skip the curing process. While most other olive oils claim to be “cold-pressed,” they are usually produced at hundreds of degrees, destroying enzymes and vital nutrients. ELF’s oil is truly cold-pressed — production temperature never exceeds 70° F — and then naturally decanted to produce a living oil, ensuring excellent flavor and incredible health benefits.
Traditional Cold Press
At this point, nearly every olive oil producer would use a centrifuge or a hydraulic press, exposing the olive oil to incredibly high heat to accelerate pressing. Instead, our oil is truly cold pressed at temperature that never exceed 70° F, so all of the beneficial properties, rich flavor and heady aroma are preserved. The olive mush is painstakingly arranged in a traditional granite screw press. The granite slabs are slowly screwed together until every drop of oil has been squeezed out: a very, very slow process that is absolutely worth the effort.
Many producers would use vacuum pumps to suction their oil through filters (quickly and conveniently removing olive sediment). Unfortunately, this vacuum process pulls off many of the volatile aroma molecules, "flattening" the oil's aroma and flavor signature. Instead, our oil is painstakingly decanted.
The exquisite final product is bottled and carefully sealed from light and air for shipping to our air-conditioned facility in Southern California.
