What to look for when buying olive oil?

The first thing that you need to make sure is that you're always buying "extra virgin". Avoid lower quality products such as "pure", "lite", "pomace" and "virgin" olive oil. Look for the harvest date and make sure the oil was harvested within the last year. For example if you're buying in 2020, then ideally you want to find oil that was harvested late 2019.

Olive Oil Lovers only features extra virgin olive oils and only of the highest quality. We work with some of the world's best producers and we have extremely strict quality standards.

Are all your olive oils new harvest?

Yes. However, there is a brief period (February to March) that both new harvest and the previous year's olive oils co-exist in our catalog, as this is the time period when new harvest olive oils begin to arrive in the United States. During these months you can find the previous year's olive oils on sale.

At Olive Oil Lovers you can easily tell the harvest date by looking at the product page of the olive oil you are interested in. Note that Fall 2019 is "New Harvest" throughout 2020.

Are your EVOOs "First Cold Pressed"?
The short answer is yes. The long answer is that "First Cold Pressed" is purely commercial term with no factual meaning. 95% of all oils, including most of the world’s best oils, are extracted using a Continuous Cold Cycle. The olive paste that results from crushing the olives has its oil extracted only one time with the temperature remaining below 75 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the intire process.
What happens if I buy and the products get damaged during transit?
We will exchange or refund your order. Please provide a photo and description of the damage and email us at help@oliveoillovers.com.
What is the best way to store a bottle of olive oil?
The two biggest enemies of an olive oil are light and heat. In order to best preserve a quality extra virgin olive oil, it is crucial to keep your oil stored away in a cool, dark place, preferably in a cabinet away from heat sources like a warm stove.
