What You'll Get
Olive oil can be a delicious dietary staple for humans looking for a heart-healthy alternative to butter or for cars looking to drop an unsightly spare tire. Taste the fruits of this universal emollient with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two 500-milliliter bottles of Three Olives olive oil from online market The Artisanal Kitchen (a $25.98 value). Shipping is included with this Groupon.
The Artisanal Kitchen's digital pantry is hand-stocked by proprietor Anna Zoitas, a judge for the International Fancy Food Show who has examined more than 2,000 specialty foods and beverages. One of the company's newest provisions is the cold-pressed Three Olives olive oil, an unfiltered, 100% extra-virgin fusion that blends a trio of distinct flavors. The arbequina olive pledges allegiance to Spain's Catalonia region and imparts a soft texture and a delicate flavor usually found only in cashmere sweaters. Palates detect a nuttier, spicier taste from the arbosana olive, a smaller cultivar whose high polyphenol levels are believed by some to reduce the risk of heart disease, and the koroneiki olive, indigenous to Kalamata, Greece, intoxicates the senses with its fruity aroma. Three Olives' mellow taste sets a versatile backdrop for cooking, dipping, or making dressings, although its low acidity level (less than 0.5 percent) renders it useless as battery fuel.

About The Artisanal Kitchen
Spending summers on her grandparents' farm in Greece whetted Anna Zoitas's appetite for globetrotting and healthy, handcrafted cuisine. After refining her palate on further travels through Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean, she became a judge for the prestigious International Fancy Food Show. There, she examined more than 2,000 specialty foods and beverages, many of which she now stocks in The Artisanal Kitchen's online pantry.
Carefully crafted in small batches, all of Anna's handpicked products come from all-natural organic ingredients, from extra-virgin olive oils and jams to kosher, gluten-free coffee made from arabica beans grown 4,000–6,000 feet above sea level—roughly the height of the Jolly Green Giant’s top hat. Anna provides quick, healthy recipes on the shop's website, many of which incorporate products—such as arbosana olive oil—that can help boost health and reduce the risk of heart disease.
