Semi Hard Cheese

The process of making semi hard cheeses is by pressing the curds to remove most of the moisture from the whey, rendering them solid. A lot of the cheeses in this category are covered in a wax rind, like Gouda or Cheddar, or sometimes even covered in cloth. The flavor tends to go into the buttery range, with hazelnut, savory tones that never get too tangy - like fresh cheeses - or too salty - like hard cheeses. Discover old favorites and new picks below!

Semi-hard or semi-firm cheeses tend to melt quite easily just like semi-soft cheeses, and tend have milder flavors. It's easily sliced but also good for grating - it will stick a bit to the grater, because it does contain some moisture. Prime examples include some our customers' favorite cheeses like Cheddar, Asiago, Cantal, Comte, Edam, Gruyere, Idiazabal, Jarlsberg, Mahon and Manchego. Semi-hard (or semi-firm) cheeses usually become crumblier and more pungent as they age, but while young they are firm and flavorful. While semi-soft cheeses are moist and creamy, semi-hard cheeses tend to be on the drier side, but not hard and crumbly, just firm and pliable and dense.
