Kicking Horse Coffee, I was raring to go! Course, I did not even think at the time to ask or know if it was gonna be ground already or in whole beans and sure enough it came in whole beans! Good thing I had that grinder sitting there just waiting for his first grind!
We both really enjoyed this coffee alot! We could tell the moment we opened the can and smelled the beans and when I ground them up it was even more flavorful and smelled soo good! For the first time in awhile, I did not have to add tons of sugar or creamer to perk up or hide the flavor. It was so good that we did not have to do much to help this coffee except sit back and drink this wonderful coffee and be happy!
Oh, wow, I just found out that they have an actual Kicking Horse Cafe up there in Canada and they sell baked goods like cookies, brownies, scones and pies along with banana bread! Gosh, they sure do look good. All those folks up there have got alot more to choose from than I do. But, I guess I could find a cafe somewhere if I were to get out I guess. Mmm, I wonder if they mail cookies? There goes that lazy streak again!
There are actually 17 kinds of coffee you can choose from at Kicking Horse. I don't know how I missed some of them that I would have loved to try and one is the Decaf and the other is the Mocah YoHo! Oh, well, next time maybe! I should have been paying more attention. Or was I thinking Mike would like this one best and after all the girly stuff I get, he deserves a break too! So, that is really why I chose the one with the green kicking horse on the can. Of course, according to them, there is even a more intense coffee than that one! I don't believe I want to go quite that far. But for those of you that do, I would think about seriously getting some Kicking Horse Coffee because they have all the ranges of flavors that you might want.

Oh, well, maybe next time I need some tea, I will check on Kicking Horse and see what all they have, don't wanna look too much right now because I might drool too much! Ha! I really do love it when a company thinks enough of it's employees to put their pictures and a little bit about them up on their website. It tells you that they care about them and us and I like that. It makes them feel like family almost and that you can enjoy your cup of coffee alot better knowing who made it. So, thanks for doing that, Kicking Horse!
