  • Met the owner when he did a promotion of his goods and shop at the TUI Blue hotel in Olthos d' Aqua. Excellent. Brilliant guy who patiently explained to me the benefits of the Carob pods. How they were so important to his predecessors they would plant the tree then build the house around it. Why. Because the pods were so full of nutrients and had health benefits not dissimilar to dark chocolate. However dark chocolate contains caffeine whilst the Carob is caffeine free. So Carob powder in my yogurt smoothies from now on. Did not visit the shop but so pleased met the guy with his information. He also gave benefits of the local honey to also add, and I now wish I'd purchased. However did elect to also buy some local olive oil and hot piri marinade. (Well when in Rome etc.). Did not go to the shop which looks fantastic, but so pleased he came to hotel. The Carob boards looked great, but little costly for my budget. He said he was up late putting oil on them for this promotion and then up at 5am to make visit to hotel. The guy works hard and deserves success for these interesting and beneficial commodities.
  • Very good visit. Owner very knowledge and will explain all products in detail and nothing will be too much hassle! Enjoyed it, thank you for the information! Google mistakenly says its closed on Mondays however, that was not the case.
