Kicking Horse Coffee: Review & Giveaway Can/US

I was given the opportunity to review Kicking Horse Kick Ass Coffee. “The name says it all: carpe diem, play to win, no regrets”

This is a bold, dark and rich coffee. It is a great mix of Indonesian and Central American fair trade, organic beans. When you open a can of coffee, the smell should tell you all you need to know. Is it fresh, vibrant and intense? Opening this can was pure pleasure. The aroma simply exploded under your nose. It tempts you into making the perfect cup. As a coffee lover, I could not wait to grind the beans and enjoy the flavor of this coffee.

For my taste, I believe that beans should be gently ground. A fine powder can dilute the taste and leave a powdery substance at the bottom of your cup. Once ground, these beans gave off further evidence of the freshness and purity of this coffee. I wanted to continue wafting the essence under my nose. Smell is an important part to your taste. Just as with food, a good coffee should have a smell that excites your pallette.

When made, the Kick Ass coffee delivers just that! Bold and strong coffee flavour without overpowering you. Just the way I like it. It is very smooth and a great way to start your morning. I can see that my future is going to contain many cups of this fantastic coffee.

Besides coffee, this company offers different teas and chocolate!! Considering the wonderful taste of the coffee, I can only image what their chocolate and teas must be like!

While checking out their website you will find that they have many items to make your coffee experience more enjoyable:

From french presses to grinders

Travel cups and Beautiful Gift Sets

This is one stop shopping for your hot beverage needs (chocolate too!)

  10. Safeway! My Dad loves Kicking Horse so this would be the perfect gift from me and the girls to him (my girls always buy him a bag for Cheistmas). Unfortunately coffee no longer agrees with my stomach.
