Olive oil is the synonym for a healthy life, healthy cooking and for general well being. Our passion for exquisite olive oils come from respecting nature, farming, cultivation and enjoying this unique natural product.
Coffee has been around form the 12th century and is one of the world’s most consumed hot beverages. The Arabica and Robusta beans are the most common making 99% of the traded coffee worldwide. Ethiopia was the cradle of the coffee we know today, but owing it to corruption, clan wars, etc. Ethiopia does not make 5% of the worlds production of coffee.
Alcohol has always been a product with a history. Used as medicine, drugs, cleaning and social status, we have a variety of exclusive brands which are not available in general stores.
How it all started…
The idea to this platform started a long time back, before the internet was part of our lives in 1991, after a visit in South Africa. We tasted plums and olives from a private farm called “Friesland” owned by a german sailing enthusiast. We never found that special taste again and there it was, the idea of getting these little exclusive products from around the globe.
Years passed, jobs came and went but friendships stayed and evolved. Today we have a superb network of top chefs all experts in their fields on business, working a head chefs in 5 star hotels, catering companies or even the high end super yacht industry. After a great gig in the south of france in 2018, we decided to start up this challenge in bringing the world on tastes to you. We hope you will enjoy what we have to offer.About us
