Kicking Horse Coffee, Ground, 10oz


This Kicking Horse Coffee, Dark Roast, Ground, 10 oz is the real deal. It is darker than most coffees I have had in the last several months, yet it has delightfully smooth, too. For me, that is a winning combination.

It arrives in a fold-down, resealable package. It was fresh I could tell when opening the bag. The scent was earthy AND heavenly. The taste is full-bodied. It is the perfect eye-opener for my family and me. Already ground, you are one step closer to your morning jolt of java.

Kicking Horse is Kosher and Certified Organic & Fair Trade coffee. These shade-grown Arabica beans are roasted 3,000 feet above sea level, near the Columbia River. The people behind Kicking Horse have been doing this for nearly 20 years, and it shows in this blend. I would say without qualification that it stands out proudly as one of the top three on my list of favorite tasting coffees ever. Good company!

The Chosen Bean – Sumatra Coffee

Chosen Bean, Sumatra Single-Origin, Ground Coffee, Medium Roast, 100% Arabica Gourmet Coffee 12 Ounce (Misc.)
This Chosen Bean coffee is a single-origin, Sumatra medium-roasted coffee. It is 100% Arabica. This package is 12 oz. The directions call for 1-2 tablespoons per 6 oz cup. In my 34 oz French press, I tend to use 4 – 4 ½ tablespoons. This coffee required more than the standard. I most often choose the whole bean, but this tasted fresh, too. The grind worked perfectly for the French press. There were no more grounds than when I grind my own specifically for the press.

I liked this coffee, but it was not amazing to me like some I have had lately. It had good complexity for me, but the notes did not come to a cohesive finish. The sweet chocolate touch does come through. An added note: the bag suggests to wet the grounds slightly before brewing. I did not notice this the first time I brewed it, but later pots-full were significantly improved.

I received this product at a discount to test and write an honest, unbiased review.
