ZUMMO! Tinnell’s Has Freshly-Squeezed Orange Juice!

Oranges

Whoo-hooo!  We have been waiting like expectant parents and it is finally here: the Zummo Orange Juicer (CLICK HERE FOR NIFTY VIDEO)!

The Zummo is the latest and greatest state-of-the-art citrus juicer available on the planet.  Manufactured in Valencia, Spain (the orange captal of Europe), the Zummo is the only juicer available on the market that prevents any of the bitter oils from the zest or pith of the orange from getting in the juice.  The end result is an orange juice that is absolutely sublime!  It is lower in acid and sweeter than any commercially available orange juice and, being an unpasturized product, it hasn’t been “cooked” so it is a much fresher, more flavorful product (the lack of paturization does, however, limit the juice’s shelf life to 3 days).  The Zummo also has the distinction of being the only orange juice pressing machine in the world to have achieved “ISO14001” green acredidation.

Zummo Citrus Juicer at Tinnell’s Finer Foods

 

Although these machines are ubiquitous in Europe, their presence in the U.S. is mostly limited to large metropolitan areas.  Until now, as far as we know, the closest one to the Roanoke Valley is in Charlotte, North Carolina.  The owner of Tinnell’s Finer Foods – Rett Ward – has had an interest in getting one of these machines since he purchase the neighborhood grocery from his Grandmother in 2000.  The final decision to purchase one was made when Ward recently attended the National Restaurant Association trade show in Chicago this past May.  When he saw one operating “up close and personal” he knew we needed one at Tinnell’s!  It arrived June 14th and we started selling juice on Friday the 15th… the response is tremendous!

We use boxes of fresh Valencia juicing oranges.  While Valencias are known for their flavor and inherant sweetnesss, the special “juicing” variety has an even sweeter, fresher-tasting profile and yields a better product.  We are picking them up fresh every week and are making the juice on a daily basis in order to ensure the best juice possible.  Currently we are selling half-gallon containers for $8.99.  We will also be offering quart and pint sized containers in the immediate future.
