Thanks OP. Picked up 1 Grizzly & 2 Half Ass. I usually buy the KH Decaf and mix it 50-50 with one of their dark roasts. Good way to reduce my caffeine intake and still enjoy my morning coffee :)

Have you tried Folgers or 1850?

I've been trying a few, these are the ones I've preferred and would re-order, so far:

* Gulf Islands Roasting Organic Whole Bean https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07JBKDZX8
* Paradise Mountain Coffee Organic Estate Blend Coffee https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07DJ32FNR

Both more expensive thatn KH. Better body and and less bad edge/aftertaste than similar KH claimed roasts, in my opinion.

I use fine grind with manual drip/cone (pour over boiling water - chemex style but not "slow pour over".)

A glass of wine with you, sir, and the ladies I'll enjoy.
Revolutionary times must on occasion make do with considerable abridgements in order to accentuate the political line more strongly.

Yes it's a really nice light roast. That's next up after I finish Pacific Coast(?) which was really good too, very medium but leaning medium darkish.

Most even have the roast date on the packages and the beans are usually as fresh as possible- far fresher than whatever Amazon is selling you.
I thought Lavazza bought KH (but agree to let them keep their brand/same way of operating)?
1. Buy cheap, buy twice
2. Don’t buy because it’s cheap. Buy it when needed or it brings convenience/happiness/better quality in life
3. Buy now think (regret/return) later
4. If the gut says don’t tell your lady, don’t!

Has anyone tried the Hoodoo Jo? Seems to be the only Kicking Horse blend with African beans (the superior origin of coffee beans IMO).

Agreed. African beans make delicious coffee. Kenya, Ethiopian and Tanzanian coffees are awesome!

They did, but every bean is still roasted in Invermere, BC. They employ 130 people here and are a fantastic employer to work for. People leave mill jobs to work for them if the opportunity comes up. Their founder is still a 20% owner and still runs the day to day operation.

Nice to hear of a great BC success story. Last time I was shopping down at Fred Meyer in Bellingham (before COVID), I was impressed to see them selling KH in their stores.

Having worked in manufacturing myself, I think it is such a cool thing to do and to have people all over the world actually demand your product. Very inspirational!
