    Kicking Horse Coffee kicking goals

    It blazed a trail to become Canada’s largest roaster of Fairtrade organic coffee. But, as Kicking Horse Coffee’s Tom Hoyne tells Global Coffee Review, they’re not done yet.

    When Kicking Horse Coffee founders Leo Johnson and Elana Rosenfeld made the decision to only sell coffee that was certified as being both Fairtrade and Organic, they were met with skepticism on both sides of their business.


    Big CHEERS to the roasting crew at Kicking Horse Coffee for creating the best blends you could ever hope to lay your lips on. Double Cheers for being such a sexy bunch of bean jockeys!
