Learn How to taste the EVOO

Music and movement in the sensory memory

To taste an extra virgin olive oil is to look for the rhythm. Each oil gives us unique and different notes. Taste means finding this music and that dance that plays in your senses. Or a harmony. Or a silence. Or an impact. A rhythm that you recognize and remember.

In Molí Coloma olives are selected at different times of their maturity. And with them is composed the pentagram of flavors, the melodies that have consecrated our character.

In the EVOO melodies, there are three unique sounds, which differentiate them from all other oils: fruity, bitter and spicy.


The olfactory sensations that, when tasting the oil, we associate with aromatic traces that evoke the ripe green olive, the green apple, freshly cut grass, artichoke, some tropical fruits or the tomato.


Plays another role in the melody. It imposes changes in the dance of flavors. Bitters are select, exotic, exquisite. Like chocolate, black coffee.


Caused by the intensity of the phenolic compounds, the “spicy sensation” is perceived in the mouth and especially in the throat, to a different degree by different people. That feeling should not be confused with the hot peppers that characterize some dishes.
