Kicking Horse Coffee, Kick Ass – Coffee Review

Some of the most unique and high quality packaging I’ve seen. They actually seal their whole bean coffee in a can.

Getting past the packaging I brewed the “Kick Ass” (Dark) blend. It was full-bodied with just the slightest hint of smoke that most dark coffees are overwhelmed with. The flavor was pronounced, smooth mouth fill. If you like dark coffee but don’t like the bitter over smoked aftertaste of a lot of coffees then this it a good one to try.

Notes from Kicking Horse Coffee

The name says it all: carpe diem, play to win, no regrets. Don’t let this cute little donkey fool you-he plays for keeps. This take-no-prisoners roast is popular with athletes who’d rather enjoy a good cup of coffee than choke down an energy bar before a workout. A great mix of Indonesian and Central American beans that is guaranteed to kick some sense into you.

    Nate, I’m disappointed. I was sure you would ilnduce the coffe gift that I have ever received. COCA COLA BLACK!!! YUCK!!!! This is without question the most hideous thing ever done to coffee. Unfortunately, it was a gift from my daughter, so daddy had to drink it in front of her. What god awful crap!!!!

    I am interested in the Kick Ass blend. However, I read that the beans are difficult to grind in a burr grinder, because the beans are oily and tend to stick. Would you please comment. If the beans are indeed oily (which isn’t a bad thing — only a bad thing for burr grinders), then I would like your suggestions as to one or more of your blends I might prefer. I’m looking for an espresso.
