“ALBADIA” is an extra virgin olive oil with a fresh, moderately spicy and intense taste. This oil is made with the olives from the first autumn harvests, to ensure the maximum rates of anti-oxidants in the oil.
The farm is located on the path of the Hijaz Railway and the station there had a man that sells coffee; hence the name "Gahawji" which means coffee boy in Arabic
High Vitamin "E" since olives are harvested when they are still green.
We use vented crates, and press the olives within 6 hours of harvest to ensure low acidity levels
Nurturing & Picking
The olives we used in this oil are a mixture of Local Roman (70%), Spanish (20%) and Kalamata (10%) olives, this mixture gives that light and smooth taste.
The trees have been nurtured and taken care of by generations of farmers, which have passed their passion they have for the land and trees, to the next generations.
During picking season families from the near by villages join us in this process, just like their grandparents did.
85% of the electrical energy used in the farms and oil presser is produced from solar panels
Water efficient watering systems are used in the farms
The farms and olive presser annually save:
3,820,480KG of CO2
412.04KG of NOx
12.07KG of SO2
We work with the ILO (International Labor Org) to make sure that all our farms are a fair work place
Some of our farmers are Syrian displaced families, we provide them with a decent environment to live in and a school for the children
Olive oil solid residues are used as a heat source in heating water for farms, leaves are used to make compost, and no disposables are used in the process
