Favorite EV olive oil?

What brand of extra-virgin olive oil do you use in your kitchen?

I use Filippo Berio, and buy it in the 3 liter cans.

I use Filippo Berio. Costco sells it in the 3 litre jugs for around $18.

I have been using one called Dimitri that we picked up at a Greek festival. Unfortuantly the 3L can is empty and I am just about out. Suppose I need to run down to where they are (at least they are local) and pick up some more.

I have 3 or 4 different bottles going right now. One is Spanish, another is Italian (Calamata oil I think), and my favorite I brought back from Israel. I need to take another trip there because that bottle is almost done.

My favorite is Bella Terra Truffle Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil. But I carry a selection of 7 or 8 types.

I have it from all over. Friends recently brought me some from Greece and Palestine. I like the Tuscan from Cosco. I buy and unfiltered Italian from Marshalls whenever I find it there. For awhile I could get a nice fruity Turkish oil called Lio, but I haven't seen that around recently.
