    Well because the competition it was up against was significantly worse. The venerated SF BAY Coffee: Fog Chase in my opinion was a burden to the eye, a sting to the nose, and a cough for the throat. I am not a coffee aficionado and I can honestly and with pride admit that I am terrible at descriptions regarding taste or smells or anything really. The latter merely states that I know I am an idiot. So if you would please allow me to apologize in advance for the mediocrity of the following descriptions of the vastly superior (to 1 opponent) Kicking Horse Coffee: Smart Ass, I shall continue…I payed money not for coffee but for an experience or, to satiate the senseless covid ruminations, a hobby. The bag seemed fine with its minimalistic intentions but could do some updating. There’s a lot of unnecessary text that can’t be entirely removed or replace with a hyperbole that your coffee makes horses kick or something of the sort that will make it more probable that the consumer will memorize your brand name and share it in a conversation. But as my scissors cut through that plastic the aromas I’d these coffee were enjoyed throughly. I wanted to make a candle out of it since the smell mattered to me so much. Start grinding and your hit once again with an orgy of different smells which exacerbates the impatience of waiting until the coffee is done and cool. And as I drank the first cup I immediately knew I liked it. I didn’t know why but I knew this was some good coffee and continued to drink it until it finally induced me to make this review. I have been trying to deduce what exactly of this coffee do I like? So I go drinking multiples cups disregarding time which led me to succumb to herbal ;)teas to treat my insomnia. Until finally one day, this day, right know, I knew why i liked this coffee. It was the taste. It took long hours trying to decipher what in the hell this coffee tasted like. What tastes like coffee? But it was darn good. Until it hit me. It tastes exactly how it smells. Plus its smooth as butter. That’s it. That’s a covid epiphany.

    As my tastes in coffee have evolved and improved I no longer particularly like dark roast beans. Over-roasting destroys the natural flavour and aroma signatures, in my opinion.I’ve used this roast in both moka pot and cafetière preparations, and it has produced and equally good, well-balanced brew.

    I don’t know if the company cleaned up its act, but the bag I got was fresh, aromatic and delicious. The critics seem to describe an underroasted coffee, mine was roasted well into second crack and the beans had a shine: vienna roast by my personal definition. It may have been a fluke, but I hope they continue like that.This beat Koffee Kult dark roast, and that was hard to do.

    This is my 4th Kicking Horse order from Amazon. I was motivated by the pandemic to mail order beans, having usually gotten them locally. Each order has been a win. I first tried Grizzly Claw, then Kick Ass and now Smart Ass. Having had the dark roast beans for months, I wanted something different, hence the Smart Ass medium roast. As always, I bought the whole beans and then ground them with a burr grinder. For a medium roast with my drip maker, I start with a medium-fine grind. In this, my first effort, it seems to have been the right setting. I would describe the coffee as smooth, low acid, with a mild, nutty flavor. I have had more flavorful medium roasts, but this suits me fine and is a good break from the dark roasts. I will play around with my method to see if I can brighten the coffee up a bit. The order was delivered the next day, which was great. The vacuum in the bag was strong, as it has been for each order. I think their packaging has everything to do with being able to deliver consistently fresh coffee by mail order at a decent price.

    Howdy y’all! Here in Texas we refer to pour over coffee as cowboy coffee. I got these fine aromatic beans yesterday and at the crack of dawn I brewed me a cup. Good thing I followed the instructions and measured the amount. This coffee is appropriately named. The taste and aroma is a thousand times greater than any old BigBucks coffee. For all you coffee connoisseurs this coffee is all you need if you are looking for a strong morning kick.

    I admit it, we only tried this coffee because so many people bought coffee beans when the shelter in place order came out that we couldn’t find any. I bought the medium roast smaller bag so that we could try it. We love it! It’s flavorful with out being too bold (I didn’t buy the dark roast on purpose) and all three of us the sweet coffee, almost a dessert drinker; the one cup only balanced with sugar and milk drinker; and the coffee snob who researches where the beans are grown drinker all really liked this coffee. I guess I should also tell y’all that we have a seico automated coffee and espresso machine, a breville espresso machine, a French press, a percolator (well two, a stove top and an electric) a cold brew and a regular drip coffee pot. Ok, ok we also have a air pressure pump one as well. We REALLY like our coffee in this house. I can’t speak to the other flavors in this line but I ordered the big bag of coffee beans a few days after getting our small bag and signed up for monthly delivery.

    I am very picky about the kind of coffee I buy. Thought I would try out different brands than usual. This one is funny because of the names they give their coffees. I am so glad I gave this one a shot! Each time you open the bag you get his with a wave of amazing smell from the bean and the roast. Then grinding the bean to brewing the coffee, it smells even better. I test coffee on how it tastes black and this one is awesome. I will definitely be back to purchase more!
