The name Coulommiers appeared at the beginning of the 19th century. It refers to a small-sized Brie. The “Coulommiers cheeses” were celebrated by the jury at the 1878 Great Exhibition in Paris.
“Our Reflets de France Coulommiers is made from milk, which comes from around twenty local farms in the Brie-area. The Fromagerie de la Brie has used ladles to pour it into molds since 1939. The Coulommiers is then aged in a maturing room for 5 weeks, where it will develop its straw-coloured pale, runny centre, which tastes of hazelnuts and mushrooms.”
