Details

Our quick tips and must-knows for making the perfect Kick Ass® cup of coffee.
Water
Water makes up 98.5% of a cup of coffee. If the tap water tastes good to drink, it's good to make coffee with. Use it cold and freshly poured from the tap. (Let the tap run for a few seconds first.) If the tap water isn't great, then use natural spring water for best results.
Grinding
Grind fresh beans just before use. The French Press method calls for a coarse grind. The grind size should be between .75 mm and 1 mm. If the grind is too coarse it will make the coffee taste weak. If the grind is too fine, it will make the coffee taste bitter or too strong. For the most consistent outcome, we recommend a burr grinder.
Measurements
We recommend a coffee to water ratio of 50 grams (1.8 oz) of ground coffee per 1 litre (34 fl oz) of water. In English, that's two tablespoons for every cup of water. More if you're bold, less if you're not.
Storage
Coffee absorbs odours and deteriorates when it contacts air. Keep coffee tightly rolled in its Kicking Horse Coffee valve bag or sealed in its Kicking Horse Coffee can until ready to grind more beans. Store coffee in a dry, cool location, but not in the fridge or freezer.
About the French Press method
The French Press is the French-kiss of coffee brewing — it enables a more intimate experience with the flavour of the beans. Low-tech and time-honoured, just grind, pour and plunge. The result? A simple method and deliciously complex cup.
Action
  • Boil cold, clean water.Grind beans and add to the French Press (see measurements below)
  • Fill French Press with the desired amount of water (see measurements below)
  • Watch the coffee bloom (fresher coffee results in a better bloom)
  • Give the grounds a good stir
  • Let it brew for 4-5 minutes
  • Plunge gently and serve
Indications
1858 - The legend
We have a legend that tells of a Rocky Mountain explorer who was kicked in the head by a horse. His companions thought him nearly dead, but he was somehow revived by a Kick Ass® cup of coffee. The legend continues, the name stuck, and today the legendary Kicking Horse® Coffee lives on!
