      Hello Veronica,

      I think in “Cold Pressed” warm water is not used its cold water and lees quantity. No cooking process it is kept in a jar to separate in three layers ( cream on top, next oil and than water) I hope that helps.

      In cold press u add normal water n soak grated coconut for 10 to 15 minutes n then press it with a presser, just like olives r pressed. No mixer / grinder is used. Once u get the juice. Cook on slow fire till it leaves oil n the residue is light brown. Cool n fill it in bottles at room temperature. Can b used up to 24 months.
