Kicking Horse Coffee Kick Ass Overview

Kick Ass is another robust, dark roast blend by Kicking Horse’s expert roasters.

Really, everything this company does is of high quality.

Kick Ass offers more sweetness and less earthiness than Cliff Hanger Espresso but still boasts a balanced profile and low acidity.

Fresh, oily and aromatic, Kick Ass is a great coffee for that delectably dark, roasty flavor without the bitterness.

About The Coffee Maven

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!
