Queso Cotija (aged cheese)
Queso Cotija is named after Cotija, Michoacan where it originates from. This zesty, robust cheese is granular in texture and very similar to parmesan cheese. Cotija is much saltier than most Mexican cheeses and does not melt.

We’re proud to provide incredible artisan cheese to restaurants, grocery stores, and other businesses, so if you’re searching for authentic Mexican cheese, you’ll love our Cotija cheese.
