What’s the difference between semi-firm and semi-soft cheeses? Not a whole lot--there’s no right answer for how to categorize cheese by texture, but we’ve rounded up the ones we think lean towards the firm end of the spectrum. Softer than the supple, elastic cheeses we love, but denser and more toothsome than some of the creamier, more gooey varieties, semi-firm cheeses fall into a category that encompasses all styles of flavors, milk type, and origin. Some of our favorite semi-firm stunners? Cavemaster originals like Vermatcha and Rose Hopper are at the top of our list.
