    I used to order my coffee from Italy and when the tiny company I was using went TU I was lost. I found this by accident in a grocery store. (Go figure) Grizzly Paw is a bold coffee with utterly no bitterness whatsoever. There are notes, (more like symphonies) of coco milling throughout this strong, thick, coffee with caramel hints coming from somewhere. I go through 6 lbs a month. I bring 2 thermoses of it with me when I to restaurants.There are no grocery stores within 100 miles of my northern Montana home and I cannot be more thankful that I can have it shipped to me here in the middle of nowhere.

    Amazing coffee! I’ve purchased Death Wish, Valhalla Java, San Francisco Bay, Starbucks – all manner of whole bean coffees, and this was the absolute best. It is smooth, non-acidic, mellow and yet somehow still kicks you in the backside and gets you going in the morning. I found I needed a little less beans for a couple of cups than I did with other coffees, so even though it’s a 10oz bag, I’d say it easily goes as far as a 12oz bag of most coffees, maybe even a little further. I have also had the decaf of this, and it is delicious as well. There’s a great aroma, a nice amount of oil, and it works great in a French Press. Treat yourself to some Grizzly Claw. It makes getting out of bed bearable. Bearable, Grizzly Claw – see what I did there?? 🙂

    I love coffee. Having tried Atlas coffee club sampler and worked my way through the various blends offered by Black Rifle Coffee it was time for a new blend I came across Kicking Horse brand. I will say it is delicious!! Great taste and great price. I grind my own and went for a almost fine ground and it is amazing!! You wont be disappointed!!

    I legit love this coffee. I’m not a coffee connoisseur, but I drink an awful lot of it, so I’ll try to convey why I like this coffee…Since I am probably a more discerning beer drinker than coffee drinker, I’ll try out this analogy: the difference between this coffee and Starbucks or Pete’s or other nice coffees is kind of like the difference between a fresh, local, double dry hopped IPA and a mass produced IPA like sierra nevada or Sam Adams New England IPA.There is just a different depth and complexity, smoothness, richness. You drink it and say “ahhh… pleasant.”Most noticable is the lack of bitterness and the pleasant aftertaste that leaves you wanting more.Very good coffee. Enjoyable. I am ordering more as we speak.

    We’ve bought this coffee for sometime now. No complaints about the product but… the “enjoy before” date (the expiration date) was just 5 days after the delivery of the coffee. While it was still drinkable, it was not as tasty as previous shipments that had long expiration dates.

  6. Nope

    I normally drink Black Rifle Coffee but it’s a pain sometimes as I travel or work and their lead time and shipping are inconsistent (largely not their fault as they roast their beans to order and then they’re at the mercy of FedEx) so I have to try and time my shipments or they sit outside for days. I’ve been looking for a nice, deep, extra dark roast that compares to their Beyond Black that I can get more quickly and with more urgency (Amazon Prime FTW) and while Grizzly Claw isn’t quite as dark and roasty, it is a very pleasant coffee. Both of the Kicking Horse coffees I’ve tried are a bit smoother than Black Rifle Coffees, with Grizzly Claw being much more so than 454 Horse Power. While Grizzly Claw is not quite as edgy as I like my dark roasts to be, it is incomprehensibly smooth and something I would honestly drink again (though I like the 454 quite a bit more). I think this bridges the gap between what a really strong dark coffee roast is for me (Beyond Black) and what most other so-called “dark roasts” seem to be (i.e. not Dark Roasts at all but more like gas station French Roast) while still managing to be smoother than both. Very good stuff!

    I really loved this coffee and wanted so badly to give them a second chance. However, no go! This could possibly be the third time now that the “Enjoy by” date is at least a couple months past. Might be the distributor, However, I really want fresh coffee. So Unfortunately, I will have to change brands. If you guys are able to fix this problem, I will enjoy your coffee again.

    This is a review for Kicking Horse Grizzly Claw. I’m more of a medium roast guy, but as dark roasts go, this is very good. It is powerful but low acid. A distinctly smoky aroma, but no, the beans were not burnt. Zero bitterness. Not what I would drink daily but I can understand why it gets the strong reviews. I was wondering how fresh the beans would be, given that I ordered it through Amazon and who knows where it’s coming from. However, two points. First, it came the day after I ordered it. Less than 24 hours. I assume from a warehouse in the nearest major city. Phoenix or LA. Second, it is the best vacuum packing I have experienced in coffee. I could not pull open the top of the bag. I tried, don’t think it can be done. Per instructions, the bag has to be cut below the point of sealing. Not surprisingly, the beans were fresh.

    I took a chance and tried something new and for once my effort was REWARDED!! This coffee is DELICIOUS,if you did not like coffee this might just win you over to the bean! Honestly, I am very picky and a super taster, I usually only drink Peets this rivals and even can surpass the flavor of Peets. Grizzly Claw was soo good I had no cream and I drank it anyhow, my bravery paid off (lol) it was not bitter, it was smooth and comforting with a mild nutty more so chocolatey undertone. The flavor quality that grabbed me was the purity and smooth aftertaste no bitterness just pure clean coffee taste no coffee aftertaste regret. AAA+++ coffee Sadly, Whole Foods does not yet carry this, in fact it seems VERY HARD TO FIND in stores here in California. Whatever you are doing Kicking Horse coffee KEEP DOING IT and bring it here and make it more available! Best coffee in 30 years I have tasted!! Bravo!!! This is more than worth trying, try it, be bold you will love it!

    Good coffee, definitely a medium blend. I prefer super dark so I’ll get the Kick Ass dark next.Medium color and light acid, hint of burnt caramel, beans not too dark or oily (which is generally my preference as I love strong dark pours or espresso). The dry beans had an odd smell of which I cannot pinpoint and I’m usually very good at perfumeries/flavor identification/coffee fragrance— luckily that dry “off” scent goes away completely after brewing and you get a great medium (to light) low acid, great tasting and smelling cup of medium roast coffee.
