Kicking Horse Coffee Review & Giveaway - Ends 7/10 CLOSED

Post by sunrae on Wed Jun 22, 2011 11:41 am



The Company
1996 Kicking Horse Coffee opens in Invermere
"What are you two schmucks going to do with your lives? Sell coffee from your garage?" - Elana Rosenfeld's mother

And so in 1996 Leo Johnson and Elana Rosenfeld did precisely that. In the Rocky Mountain town of Invermere, B.C., Canada, they began roasting coffee in their skivvies when it was hot out, balancing babies and experimenting with different products.

By 2007, despite increasing pressure to source more green beans, Kicking Horse Coffee commits to discontinue the purchase of all non-Fair Trade coffee and develops our current 100% Certified Organic, Certified Fair Trade only, 21 blend product offering.

Our mission is to stimulate the planet with the ultimate wake-up call. We have some big ideas — ideas that go way beyond mere profit. These ideas govern everything we do, from buying only Fair Trade, organic beans to helping sustain our own community.



The Review
I received their "KickAss" coffee to review.

When I first opened the package I instantly smelled the best coffee aroma ever - rich and dark! This coffee is whole bean so I had to purchase a coffee grinder which I had be meaning to do for a long time now anyway. I ground up a small batch and brewed a pot of coffee. The coffee was dark, full flavored but not harsh at all. Most dark coffees leave a bitter aftertaste but this coffee was smooth with no aftertaste at all. My husband even commented how smooth it was. He loves rich, full-bodied, dark coffees so this was a definite hit with him. A great mix of Indonesian and Central American beans that is guaranteed to kick some sense into you.

They are the largest Fair Trade roaster in Canada. All their coffee is 100% Certified Fair Trade and 100% Certified Organic. All Kicking Horse Coffee comes from Arabica beans that are shade grown in bird-friendly environments. Growing coffee in the shade means growing coffee under a light canopy of varied vegetation at high altitudes. This creates a superior coffee cherry (bean) and a more resilient ecosystem.

They don't just have coffee they also sell Tea, Chocolate, Home Brewing, Accessories, Mugs & Stuff, Gift Sets and Movies.

You can find them in lots of places across Canada & USA — grocery stores, cafés and online. Use their store and café finder to discover location nearest you. For cost-effective shipping and faster delivery time you may purchase Kicking Horse Coffee on Amazon.com.
