Review: Kicking Horse coffee; Dark

kicking horse coffee

I am a coffee drinker, and by coffee drinker- I mean, I can’t function properly without it. I wake up in the morning 30 minutes earlier than I have to just so I can get a few cups in before I have to wake my son up for school.


I’m not a diehard coffee drinker that can drink plain black coffee, though. I prefer it with sugar and cream. Without my morning coffee, I feel like just crawling back into bed, pulling the cover over my head, and sleeping all day.

When I got a chance to review a jar of coffee from Kicking Horse Coffee, I was ecstatic. I love trying out new coffee! I was sent a can of the Kick Ass Dark Coffee.

The Kicking Horse Dark Coffee has a bright green lid. The coffee comes in whole beans, and smells amazing. It is certified organic and fair trade. Kicking Horse has beat the system when it comes to making amazing coffee.

Usually dark roasts end up tasting overly strong and leave a bitter acidic taste in my mouth that tastes slightly burnt. But this dark roast does an amazing job of tasting full of flavor without the slightest hint of tasting burnt.

It tastes and smells delectable, while keeping the powerful kick of a dark roast. This dark roast is full-bodied,  and strong. I feel like it has as much kick as drinking a whole pot of regular coffee or even an energy drink.

It has a smooth and robust flavor that goes down well. No bitterness, and no nasty stomachache later from it being WAY too much. I tend to drink more coffee than I should, so this is the perfect coffee for me. I am dying to try all their other flavors as well! I would love to try the 454 Horse Power, Cliff Hanger Espresso, and the Grizzly Claw.

About the company: Small in stature but big on flavour, Kicking Horse Coffee is Canada’s #1 Organic Fair Trade Coffee. Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies at the headwaters of the mighty Columbia River, a lot has changed since those humble beginnings in 1996. Now employing over 40 dedicated personnel and occupying a 60,000 ft2 office and roasting facility, a growing and loyal following continually reinforces our commitment to roasting, packaging and blending, the finest super-premium coffee in the country!

Where to purchase: You can purchase Kicking Horse Coffee at retailers throughout Canada and US. You can also purchase from the Kicking Horse Coffee website and on Amazon.com. Prices are $12.99 and up.
