Jeffs' Select is the result of a collaborative effort between Jirik and long-time friend Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker Jeff Wideman. It is Wideman who makes the cheese, which is then sent to Faribault for aging. Unlike typical Goudas aged in cold temperatures, this American original is aged in the warm and humid environment of the caves. The result is a full-bodied flavor with a classic European nuttiness and a hint of caramel. Its annatto-rubbed rind gives it its vibrant orange color.
