There are more expensive oils, but the price is for the packaging, because they are collected by hand, because of marketing …
In Prima Mensa there is only one reason: The Quality of the Oil
And it is not an assumption, they are facts:
Acidity, below 0.2º. Yield: below 8%. Olives: more than 100 years. Variety: Hojiblanca from a very exclusive area of the “Olivar in San Miguel” in Puente Genil (Andalusia). Production: less than 1500 litres. System: First Press and Cold Extraction.
But it’s best if you read the words of Augusto, one of our clients. His review left us feeling emotional:
I am 85 years old…
Since I was a child I have always been passionate about good olive oil. I remember that when I was 12, in a small village, I loved to visit the oil mill, “a cylinder rotating and crushing the oils as it moved around itself. : “”cold pressed oil” I hadn’t come across it since then …… nor tasted it….. only now thanks to you.
A gift for you, for your family, or for your friend, enjoy the most exclusive oil before it runs out.
We are confident that you will enjoy this marvellous Oil, otherwise, you can return it.

Making a quality oil is no easy task.
Not even the decision to make a quality oil is easy.
Any olive farmer can decide to make oil. Normally they belong to a cooperative, which presses all of the partners’ olives together and sells 99% of its production in bulk. Who do they sell to? Large factories that mix olives of different grades; to other countries like Italy and Greece who handle the olives in the same way; etc. etc.
The courageous have their own oil press or their own brand. They produce extra virgin olive oils with an average oil yield of 22%, which means that for every 100kg of olives, they get 22kg of oil. The olives are harvested at an advanced stage of ripening to achieve the maximum yield possible.
The most courageous produce a purer extra virgin olive oil, choosing the optimum moment of ripeness to achieve an extremely high quality oil, with an average yield of 16-17%. This is the case with Arraigo, a premium olive oil with incredible flavour.
And those who cross that fine line between bravery and madness, like the farmers at San Miguel’s Olive Grove, choose to make the best extra virgin olive oil they possibly can:
- They select olives from the best location within their olive grove.
- They harvest the olives at the optimal stage of ripeness in terms of product quality, when the olives are en envero, just starting to change colour. This stage of ripeness only lasts a week and the fat yield is only 12%, which means they obtain almost half the amount of oil than from the first ones.
- They labour over the finest details of each step in the process: pressing, extraction, storage, bottling…
And on top of all that, they offer this oil to us at bulk prices.
“But why?” you may well be wondering…
Out of love. Love for their land, love for our most cherished of agricultural products, and because for four generations, they have been making oil that nobody in their own country appreciated…
That olive oil, Prima Mensa, now has a place at your table. It doesn’t come from a big supply chain, nor has it passed through 4 or 5 different factories and warehouses before being sold.
It is quite simply the purest olive juice, offered up to your kitchen by San Miguel’s Olive Grove.
We do not sell to anyone else. No supermarkets, no department stores, no retail chains…
It is for this reason that Prima Mensa is the best Pure Extra Virgin Olive oil out there, there really isn’t anything else to it; not a single penny of its price is dedicated to any other pursuit.
Simple, honest and pure. From San Miguel’s Olive Grove to your table.
Once again, many thanks to the farmers of the San Miguel Olive Grove. Without your trust and love, this would have never been possible.
