If you Google ‘Master’, you come across many definitions of this word.
In Spanish, a ‘Maestro’ is a male teacher.
Master is a teacher, but also a worker, an artisan qualified to teach apprentices, as well an artist, performer or player of great skill, or a great figure of the past (such as in science or art) whose work serves as a model or ideal.
In the olive industry, the job of the Maestro is one of the key positions in the factory. It is a mixture between a teacher, artisan and chef, but they are also a team leader.
The Maestro will be in charge of many details during the process; one of the most important stages will be the curing process during the harvest season.
This is a position developed after many years of experience; there is no course, book or training manual for learning about this profession. ARTISAN.

This is our small tribute to you Manolo. MAESTRO.
