Kharaysin

“KHARAYSIN” extracted from the historic Greek olive, it produces a bold extra virgin olive oil with a complex taste that has a high amount of polyphenols that make pleasant bitterness of the oil stand out. It takes on a robust flavour.

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
