GIVEAWAY: Kicking Horse Coffee


As you all know I am a huge coffee lover and am also a huge fan of all things organic! Meet Kicking Horse Coffee- a certified organic coffee company that offers a variety of delicious coffees!


Kicking Horse Coffee is available at retailers throughout Canada and US, on their Kicking Horse Coffee Online Store as well as on Amazon.com

The winner of this fantastic & delicious giveaway will take home their very own (super cute) aluminum Kicking Horse Coffee tin full of their yummy full bodied Kick Ass Coffee blend. This blend is an extreme bold and tastes like gourmet espresso-yay! The name says it all: carpe diem, play to win, no regrets. This roast is popular with athletes (and at home exercisers!!!) who'd rather enjoy a good cup of coffee than choke down and energy drink before their workout. A fantastic blend of Indonesian & Central American beans that is guaranteed to kick some sense into you! Delicious taste and smell. I have found a new love!

How do you know you are getting the best tasting, organic coffee from Kicking Horse Coffee? Heres how: They choose ONLY Organic Fair Trade Arabica beans! They love coffee! They love roasting coffee, they love packaging coffee! They source the beans, roast them, "cup" them to ensure quality, and package them for fresh delivery. Thats how! Showing their coffee love in each and every step of the process guarantees we get a delicious cup each and every time!

Kicking Horse Coffee has you covered for all your coffee & more needs:



Their awesome gift sets and coffee brewing equipment are priced wonderfully and would make fabulous Christmas gifts! Perfect for the cold winter weather, Kicking Horse Coffee: teas, coffees, gift packs, mugs, and chocolates!
