At The Cheese Shop we every so often hear: “Oh, I don’t really like blues….”  When we do, we offer a sample of Chiriboga…& watch as the eyes light up, a surprised smile forms & then the words “Wow-that’s good!”

Arturo Chiriboga, an Ecuadorian who mastered German cheesemaking, utilizes a turn-of-the-twentieth century Bavarian recipe to create this buttery-rich blue.  Chiriboga Blue is spreadable & lovable—in fact, Arturo keeps a wheel from each batch he makes for him & his family to enjoy.
