Our Story

The Beginning
Grand Opening
Community
Cookbooks Galore
Crown City Affogato
New Ownership
Previous store owner, Roberta Schwartz, was visiting her daughter in Bethlehem, PA and was inspired by a specialty store called Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Tap Room on Bethlehem's quaint Main Street. As an artist, she was displaying at an event called Art Walk, and was fortunate enough to meet the "Seasons" owners, and was completely smitten with the store, and the concept.
T"I love to cook," Roberta says. "And I knew the store, that featured fabulous olive oils and vinegars, would be perfect for Coronado and give me just the creative outlet that I so wanted." Roberta opened "Coronado Taste of Oils" which sells oils, vinegars, pastas, sauces, spices and accessories. "Visitors love the product as a souvenir of their time here."
Coronado Taste of Oils became a dedicated member of the Chamber of Commerce, and began to get heavily involved in local events and fundraising efforts. Roberta soon became a member of the Board of Directors, and the specialty foods store proudly showcased all that Coronado has to offer to all patrons that visited the store!
Now open for six years, the business flourished. The staff had written six cookbooks, and had been doing cooking classes for four years – taking people beyond the salad dressing - The cookbooks have recipes that range from cocktails to entrees and desserts using oils and vinegar. Online sales of the cookbooks began to soar, and they are now a store classic.
Neapolitan ice cream with balsamic vinegar and amaretto at our store became famous on the Coronado Food Tour. This amazing dessert, created by the staff, is called Crown City Affogato Float, and is a "must-try" if you are a Coronado first-timer. Staff makes the affogato (which means drowned in Italian) with vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate balsamic (yes, there is such a thing!) and Frangelico liqueur.
New owners, Mike and Ruth Ann Fisher proudly take over ownership of the store, and are excited for the next Chapter of Coronado Taste of Oils. Learn More.

Why We Do What We Do

Healthy Dietary Choices

There are extraordinary health benefits with consuming EVOOs and balsamic vinegars. The Mediterranean diet has been deemed as one of the healthiest diets in the world and both olive oil and balsamic vinegars are at the core of this diet.

Olive Oil Keeps the Heart Young

A diet rich in olive oil may actually be able to slow down the aging of the heart. Arteries have a number of problems as the heart ages, but in a recent study, researchers discovered that a diet rich in olive oil can improve arterial function in the elderly.

Keeping Customers Happy

With every new patron that visits us online, or walks through our doors gives us a chance to educate about the health benefits of fresh olive oil. Every flavor profile excites the palette, and enhances every dish your kitchen has the pleasure to cook.

If cuisine were to be defined by just one taste, it would be that of subtle, flavored and aromatic, extra-virgin olive oil.
