Kicking Horse Coffee Cliff Hanger Espresso Overview

One of Kicking Horse Coffee's medium roast offerings, Cliff Hanger Espresso is a lighter, fruitier blend than either of the dark roasts above while still offering a smooth, bold finish.

Designed as Kicking Horse’s espresso roast, Cliff Hanger is perfectly suited for a rich shot with a beautiful crema. But then again, both 454 and Kick Ass will be great in that capacity, too.

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
