Spanish extra virgin olive oil from Cuchi Organics [giveaway]

Recently I've been seeing and hearing positive things about olive oil and the Mediterranean diet, and in the USA Today in particular. Did you know olive oil helps reduce the risk of breast cancer and heart disease?

But first, I just tried the extra virgin olive oil from sisters Maricarmen & Alina at their Etsy shop, Cuchi Organics. Their passion is sharing their creations with the world and making sure we care for our planet and our bodies. That's an admirable passion if you ask me.


The sisters are from Spain where they left 10 years ago. Maricarmen is now living in United States and Alina is in Germany. While they may be far a part, they still feel very close. The name Cuchi Organics honors the memory of their mother - Cuchi was her nickname.

And I love this olive oil. Let's face it, unless we're at a restaurant and we're being served bread and olive oil as an appetizer, many of us probably don't consider it for our diet. But we need to make sure we're consuming the right kind. I'm not talking about store bought.

From Forbes:
Here’s the hard truth: the olive oil in your pantry, the one you bought for its health benefits and for some sliver of the seductive Mediterranean lifestyle, is most likely a scam. A scam, meaning it probably contains less actual olive oil than you’d ever imagine. A scam, meaning it’s likely been mixed with colorants and other less expensive oils like sunflower-seed oil. A scam, meaning you really have not been getting what you paid for.

About that taste? Prepare yourself. Real olive oil – the good stuff – will be powerful and peppery and it will catch in your throat. You may cough, your eyes may water. But these are in fact good indications that what you’re tasting – finally! – is authentic. It is also full of the reasons, especially flavor and health, that we were drawn to olive oil in the first place.

Check out what else you need to know here. Basically, you want to get organic olive oil that's extra virgin and produced with wholesome methods. And Cuchi Organics is here to help!


If you're like me, you'll love the oil with bread as a snack or before dinner, but it's also great for pasta and rice. All you need is a tablespoon for one serving. For optimal freshness, keep in a dark place at room temperature or keep it in the fridge up to two years.

So let's give away a jar of olive oil, shall we?! Cuchi Organics is graciously offering a 3.4 ounce jar of organic Spanish extra virgin olive oil to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.
