Now that’s a Kick Ass Company

Kicking Horse Coffee, oh how I love thee.

We alternate between 2 coffees in our house: Ethical Bean and Kicking Horse. No other coffee graces our home and although we love both companies, we base each weeks purchase on sale price.

Today we received in the mail a gift from Kicking Horse of 2 lbs of Kick Ass Dark Roast and my heart beat just a little faster for this ‘little ‘ol coffee company that stole my heart years ago.’

I was first turned on to this coffee when I managed a small cafe in Calgary near the University and the football stadium (I won’t name names….). I remember the day a cute salesman named Clay wandered in and approached me about possibly selling this new coffee, brewed in a small mountain town called Invermere, BC (since this was my home province the salesman already scored a point and didn’t even know it.) We brewed up a pot in a french press and the rest is history.

I brought in only 1 blend at the time called Three Sisters, for 2 specific reasons. Number one, I opted for a medium roast given my customer base and their tastes, and number 2 because of the name. The Three Sisters are part of a mountain range just outside of Calgary and I knew it would strike a chord in some customers…get them where their heart is.

I never looked back on that day and although I left that cafe a year later, Kicking Horse has always remained very special to me. I love a home grown story…a home grown BC story!

Getting todays parcel in the mail was almost better than Christmas and it restored my faith in big business…Thank you, thank you, thank you Kicking Horse for listening to us and sending us this awesome gift. My Guy and I take our coffee VERY seriously and only drink the best.

I was looking through the pamphlet and discovered 2 coffees I hadn’t tried! Oh. My. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?? I thought I knew every Kicking Horse coffee but apparently one called Jumbo Wild is new to me, as is Z-Wrangler. I can’t wait to try these! But alas, first we have a helluva lot of ass kicking to do first.

I love this crazy ride called Life. It truly gets better every single damn day.

Try this damn coffee. I dare ya.
