About

Our California Coast inspired products include personally handpicked contents combined with handmade ingredients. This incorporation of the Central Coast of CA ensures excellent pairing, which are typically your farmers market finds. We believe in spreading our love for avocados by using fresh, sustainable, and locally sourced ingredients, all while creating a new and better way to experience it. Our Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is cold-pressed from hand picked, grocery store quality Haas Avocados. 








At Central Coast Avocado Company, we are inspired by the active outdoor lifestyle that is in sync with California’s Central Coast. We are fortunate enough to call this incredibly innovative place our home. At our core, we have a passion for great tasting, healthy food - as well as natural, sustainable products that are made from locally sourced ingredients.  Our mission is to provide versatile, healthy oils which will enhance your healthy lifestyle, just as they do ours.

The foundation of our company mission started when we became aware of the versatile health benefits of extra virgin avocado oil. The further we looked into what was already on the market, we quickly became frustrated as we found most of the products were either refined or imported. 

We then were fortunate to partner with a team that produces our oil as naturally as possible using sterilized cold-press technology. The cold press technology is free of chemical solvents, which are an integral part of many other oil production processes. Cold pressing allows the avocado oil to retain its nutritional content, aromatics, color, and flavors.

We are pleased to bring you what we feel is one of the finest avocado oils in the world. We hope that you enjoy incorporating this fine oil into your lifestyle along with your family and friends as much as we do.  

 We pride ourselves with passion and enthusiasm for our products - because we know how good they are. As confident as we are in our sustainable products, we fully understand it is the consumer who brings the product to life. No matter where you live, you and your loved ones are the reason we knew the production process of avocado oil - refined with chemical solvents and imported - needed to change. We've never shaken this sense of feeling that we owe it to our consumers to experience the finest extra virgin avocado oil on the market. We knew it could be done much better locally, and that is what keeps us working around the clock to find new ways to better serve our partners, consumers and our community.
 

Our goal for this Kickstarter campaign is to be able to raise enough funds to purchase our own pressing equipment. Thus far, we have been fortunate enough to partner with a third party who houses the rare equipment needed to cold press avocado oil. For the first few years of our business, this was a fantastic partnership. Here's the thing - the demand for a sustainable, true avocado mill is growing substantially each day. To give you an idea, there are only two fully functioning avocado mills in California with the proper equipment to produce the oil to the standard we need. As our company has grown and our products have become even more in demand, we came to the realization that in order to keep our company sustainable long term, we need to purchase the expensive, but necessary equipment. This will allow us to cold press our avocados and bottle on site. In doing so, we will be able to further enhance our production process by moving everything in-house.
 

We get it - as great as all that information is - why should you contribute to our campaign in order to help us come closer to purchasing this equipment? For starters, you should know this equipment is not just for the benefit of our company - the goal is much larger than us. We hope to fulfill the demand that we, along with many other avocado companies on the central coast desperately need. We will be able to partner with all kinds of sustainable companies to utilize this equipment, which helps keep everything local and sustainable along the central coast of California. We know this to be true because we have spoken to many of these companies and it all comes down to the amount of money needed to make this come to fruition. The equipment is a massive investment - with long-term return. The truth is - we don't want corporate investors to come in with their checkbooks and take over. We know first hand how valuable our premium oil and unceasing efforts are and we don't want to let the integrity of the company lapse. So, we are stepping out from the pack and going for it! We are doing our best to raise the money ourselves, and be one of the first companies to own and house this equipment. In doing so, we will be creating many jobs for locals. Come one, come all! We intend for the community, economy, and everyone in between to benefit from this facility in the heart of avocado country. Now more than ever, investing in a healthy lifestyle and what we are putting into our bodies, right down to the oils - is what separates us from large, corporate companies who import refined oil that has lost health benefits of the avocado due to the production and shipment process. Whatever the outcome of this campaign, we will continue to do whatever it takes to bring you the premium, health conserving avocado oil that you downright deserve. 
 





After eating countless avocados and fully integrating them into our lifestyle, we began to do A LOT of research in a commodity we have so much faith in. In full transparency, the health benefits are by far the top reason as to why we started this incredible mission. 

- Avocado orchards help renew our air supply and keep it fresh by absorbing carbon dioxide ad producing oxygen.

- Orchard trees lower air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves.

- Avocado tree roots stabilize the soil and help prevent erosion. 

- Avocado orchards can reduce storm run-off and the possibility of flooding. By slowing runoff and filtering rain water, orchards can improve water quality.

- Avocado orchards, due to their well-irrigated soil and lush green leaves, serve as a natural fire break for surrounding neighborhoods and businesses and can help firefighters slow or stop the rate of spread during wildfires.

Although classified as a vegetable in the USDA database based on common usage, avocados are considered a fruit because they fit the botanical criteria for a berry thanks to their fleshy pulp and large seed. 

Avocados were once a luxury food reserved for the tables of royalty, but now avocados are enjoyed around the world by people from all walks of life.

We know that avocados are a nutrient-dense fruit loaded with fiber, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, E and potassium. We also know that avocados are among the best foods to help fight stress due to their abundance of B vitamins. Last but not least, we know that avocados are down right delicious - and that is why we cold press them so that we can enjoy Extra Virgin Avocado Oil with every meal! There are plenty of interesting things people don’t know about this super food or as we like to refer to as "The Fruit Of The Gods." If these fun facts about avocados don’t leave you feeling more intrigued, they will most definitely have you craving this nutrient-dense treat. You're welcome!

Avocados are one of the only fruits that contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fat (the good-for-you fat) that helps boost good (HDL) cholesterol and lowers bad (LDL) cholesterol.

An avocado serving size is 50 calories, which works out to be 3 thin slices or 2 tablespoons mashed. They have fewer calories than the same amount of butter, mayonnaise, sour cream, peanut butter, almond butter, olive oil, and coconut oil — PLUS avocados have over 20 vitamins and minerals to upgrade your natural diet! Use avocado as a substitute in any meal starting today!

Avocados are naturally FULL of nutrition, so there's no need for special labels. They're packed with flavor; think of all of the meals you can transition tastefully with avocado oil!

SUPERCADO is what we should call avocados, because they're one of the most inexpensive anti-aging tools for your skin! Don't let its rough outer covering fool you — the inner smoothness and creaminess are what we need for youthful skin. With all of the nutrients, healthy fat and vitamins, an avocado tree could be the next fountain (tree) of youth!

Risks and challenges

We are fully committed to our Kickstarter Campaign. Through much trial and error over the last few years, we have worked through our obstacles and are capable of fully delivering our Kickstarter Campaign. We will hold true to our timeline to ensure each and every commitment is fulfilled.

At this point the only obstacle we potentially face is if you decide not to participate in our campaign. Therefore, you can imagine how meaningful it is to us by you making a pledge and being an integral part of this next step towards a better future. Help us better serve you and turn the next chapter here at The Central Coast Avocado Company! We are ready for you to enjoy our California Avocados.

We have spent the last 2 years researching, prototyping and testing our cooking oil, conditioning bars, lip balms & soap. After doing so, we believe the risks are relatively low. Nevertheless, there are risks in every project, especially when moving into new territory. At the end of the day, we understand that no company can improve products without venturing into new territory. To make better products, we must push the boundaries and find ways to do it better.

We have tried to outline everything below as best we can. If you have any other questions or concerns - please do not hesitate to contact us.

MANUFACTURING (PACK)
We are committed to our campaign and fully capable of manufacturing.

MANUFACTURING (Avocado Oil & Soap, Conditioner Bar, Lip Balm)
Our Avocado Oil is one of our biggest investments because quality is the most important to us. At the end of the Kickstarter we will be ready for production. We don't anticipate any major issues here.

DELIVERY
As we don't yet know the scale of demand for our product we haven't set up a fulfillment partner - so for now that fulfillment will be us (including our family and friends who firmly support our mission). We have investigated as best we can shipping rates, packs, and customs rates, but have not shipped at this scale before. We'll be doing our best to get your amazing Everything Avocado products to you as fast as possible!

UNKNOWN TERRITORY
Production could be delayed due to events outside human control, like flash floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, or other natural disasters.

We are excited about delivering our first products to our backers, and we will be completely engaged with our supporters during this process with full transparency. Any updates will be relayed in a timely manner, and we are open to any feedback or questions that arise along the way.
