クツディモス
Koutsodimos’s organic extra virgin olive oil is produced exclusively by unripe chemically-free olives. It is truly a product that Greek farmers keep for themselves to put on their own table. KOUTSODIMOS Olive Oil is available for the first time in Japan.

KOUTSODIMOS FARM LOCATION

Located in the Corinth area of the Peloponnese peninsula, Mr. Koutsodimos olive groves are situated at a height of 500 meters and look over the village of Petri. The soil is clayish and the terrain has good inclination with a sunny slope. These three factors are crucial for good harvests.

MEET THE ARTISAN – KOUTSODIMOS

Mr. Koutsodimos’s olive oil is very limited in quantity. His farm has no more than 2000 trees for harvesting, along with another 3000 trees by his cousin. That’s all. A dedicated artisan, Mr. Koutsodimos hardly sleeps more than two hours per day during the harvest period and he can not meet his family – but the results are worth it.
Koutsodimos Farm
He has invested in the latest technologies for getting the best of his olives and is one of the small scale producers in Greece nowadays who dare to present their own brand of EVOO and find the customers who will love it. This is a very good news for all of us who love high quality olive oil.

CULTIVATION & PROCESSING

Very low acidity of 0.14%

The quality of olive oil is directly associated with its acidity level – the lower the better. This year was very successful for Koutsodimos, as his product’s acidity is just 0.14%! This excellent result shows the fruits were processed very soon after they were picked from the tree.

Certified Bio

Koutsodimos farm uses no chemicals on his trees. They are grown high on the hills above his village, tens of kilometers away from any industrial activity and car roads.

High polyphenolic content

Koutsodimos organic extra virgin olive oil is produced exclusively by unripe olives in their early stage of ripeness so that a high amount of polyphenols in the fruit will go directly in the oil. To ensure that, Koutsodimos processes the olives at only 22℃degrees. That is called cold press and guarantees the best results.

KORONEIKI

KORONEIKI & MANAKI OLIVES

Koroneiki and Manaki are the most used olive varieties in Greece. Koroneiki gives a pungency and green leaf aftertaste while Manaki is milder with a fruity taste. A specific combination of these two olive types results in a well-balanced and flavorful olive oil.

The organoleptic test results defines Mr. Koutsodimos’s product as well balanced, fruity and piquant.

MANAKI

BIO HELLES Certified

Rich in health-beneficial polyphenols

For products of oil containing at least 5mg of polyphenols (hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives) per 20g of olive oil, the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) has approved the use of the following nutrition declaration for polyphenols in olive oil (Commission Regulation (EU ) 432/2012) : “Olive oil polyphenols contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative damage. To achieve this effect, consumer’s should be notified that these benefits are obtained with a daily intake of 20g of oil.”

Koutsodimos olive oil qualifies with tests showing his oil contains 264.9mg of polyphenols per kilo (5.3mg per 20g).

ORFEY GARDENS & KOUTSODIMOS

When I first called Mr. Koutsodimos last spring, his extra virgin olive oil was already gone. It became clear to me that his product was excellent and would be sold out soon after it was produced. Later when I tried a sample, the rich taste and flavor confirmed something I already knew – I had found a treasure! This was a handmade product of the kind Greek farmers keep for their own table.

I am passionate about Greek extra virgin olive oil which only Greeks can make and eat. So I decided I would wait until the next harvest and bring that quality to Japan! After a whole year building a closer relationship with Mr. Koutsodimos, this amazing product is finally here for everyone who wants to try a unique olive oil.
