Kicking Horse Coffee
Wake Up & Kick Ass
For over twenty years Kicking Horse Coffee has made sure their coffee kicks ass. That could be why they're Canada’s #1 selling Whole Bean and Ground Organic, Fairtrade coffee.
It's exceptional tasting coffee, roasted right in the Rocky Mountains. With a dose of deep, dark and delicious in every cup, the coffee speaks for itself.
High quality goes beyond the beans. Kicking Horse Coffee was named the #10 Best Workplace in Canada by Great Place to Work® in 2016 and identified as a Fairtrade favourite product in 2015.
Kicking Horse Coffee believes that great coffee is the answer to many things. Their question for the world is, “How will you wake up and kick ass with us?"
Once upon a time, two young entrepreneurs grew restless of travelling. They wanted less wander, more wonder. They also wanted to settle down. To dig into something big.
They started by choosing the Rocky Mountains, near Invermere BC as a good place to live, work and play. And then they picked a product they were passionate about: coffee.
In 1996 they got down to business. Setting out to make the freshest, best-tasting coffee possible they began roasting small batches of beans in their garage. It was hard, hot work. The results were nothing but delicious.
Even though the 'garage' has grown and there's lots more beans, it's still the same business. Wake up & kick ass with Kicking Horse coffee!
Why Kicking Horse?
A legend tells of a Rocky Mountain explorer who was kicked in the head by a horse.
His companions thought him nearly dead, but he was revived with a kick-ass cup of coffee.
The legend continues, the name stuck. Today, Kicking Horse Coffee lives on.
