[Loblaws] Kicking Horse coffee $9.99, also on Amazon

Loblaws has 1 pound bags of Kicking Horse on sale again for $9.99. Amazon has price matched some varieties

I buy it at Loblaws when on sale and now I frequently receive PC optimum offer for 1800 points on $9 spend, so it's been $8.20 a bag for me since last spring.

Tried this brand of coffee recently. Brewed with an Aeropress, V60, and regular drip coffee machine. It's not horrible, but it's nothing special imo. Not worth the amount of praise it gets here at RFD. It's decent at best. Then again, I'm a coffee snob.

Loblaws also has Muskoka Roastery beans 400g on sale for $11.99 (reg $17). I like their Black Bear (dark roast) better than Kicking Horse's Kick-Ass or Grizzly Claw

yeah, I wouldn't pay full price for it, but it's a decent brew for $8.20 a pound

Can you recommend a good French roast. I bought the grizzly for my dad but I'm open to other brands. I know nothing about a good coffee. He drinks black coffee

If you're going to hate, Get off RFD!

To me, one of the best thinks about Kicking Horse is that they are a fantastic company, roasting every bean they sell in small town, interior BC. They've gone from a Mom & Pop roasting for their small diner to employing 120+ people. They are fair trade and organic and were just chosen as the #1 place to work in Canada for employers with 100-1000 employees, as chosen by the employees themselves. The company was recently partially bought with an evaluation of $268,000,000. The CEO retained her position with 20% of the shares and will continue to roast every bean locally.
A company that can do this well and still treat their employees very well deserves to be supported!
Their coffee is great, too, IMHO. Our house is a Kick Ass household.

coolwasabi what would you recommend as a really great coffee? I usually grind my coffee for pour over or french press and I really haven't found anything amazing so far. I really like starbucks blonde roast because it has a very light flavour and not too bitter if they don't let it sit there too long. Thx!
