CLOSED!-Kicking Horse Coffee and Giveaway!

March 29, 2012

And the 2 lucky winners are…….

Congrats to both of you!!!!

 

coffee

Did you know that Coffee is one of the most consumed beverage around the world?

What is scary is that most of it is produced by third world countries and bought by big corporations, we won’t name any *cough  cough*, who focus on getting products for the cheapest price possible, not thinking about the people and communities making them.

When you go get your overpriced latte, do you question the integrity of the company? Do you wonder where your coffee comes from and how well the people who cultivate it live? Ignorance is bliss for most people but I try to be aware of where my purchases come from.

That’s why I want to introduce you to this amazing company who shares the same values as I do.

Kicking Horse Coffee

Fair Trade

Organic

Sustainable

Health

Helping and giving back to the Community

I have to say that it must be scary to go against big coffee corporations. It takes guts for sure, but I do believe that more and more people are taking the time to research about the products and make smart and informed decisions. That’s how I came across Kicking Horse Coffee.

Kicking Horse Coffee was founded in 1996 and has been making organic, fair trade and sustainable products since then. You have to understand (as I have been through this whole process myself) that finding organic and fair trade products is hard and getting the certification is even harder. In a way it is good since only truly organic and fair trade products get the certifications but a lot of companies will give up early in the process since it is long and costly.

Back to the coffee.

Kicking Horse makes and sells 17 different kinds of coffee but my personal favorite is the “Kick Ass” Coffee.

And yes, the fact that it’s called Kick Ass makes me a bit bias but it is also because its taste is simply amazing and it is just my kind of coffee : Intense and Bold! You want to get a kick start in the morning? Get some of this coffee!!

BETTER YET, WIN SOME OF THIS COFFEE!

Oh yeah, you heard me! WIN it!

Since I love this coffee so much, I emailed Kicking Horse Coffee and asked them if they would give two bags to two of my readers and they said yes!

So here’s how were going to do this:

I will be giving away 2 of the following :

1 – can of Kick Ass Coffee and a Kicking Horse Coffee gift bag

So you might be wondering: How do I Enter to Win???

You have 6 ways to enter the contest:

Each one of the following ways will count as one chance to win 1 of the 2 gifts, which gives you a total of 6 chances to win. If you already follow me on Twitter or you already Like my Facebook page, write it in a comment because it still counts!! Make sure to LEAVE A COMMENT for EACH entry.

Example: You just followed me on Twitter. Come back to this post and post a comment saying: I just followed you on Twitter. Easy enough right?

    Kicking horse coffee is actually really quite good – the last time we bought coffee it was kicking horse Kick Ass and we loved it. I think that my favorite type of coffee generally is Guatamalan blend, but I did once have a Jamaican Blue Mountain blend and it was amazing.

    My favorite kind of coffee is from a local coffee house on the campus near my house.  It’s called “Black and Gold Blend” for the local sports teams, but it is a nice mix of really dark coffee and then really light all in one.  So you get a ton of flavors all at the same time.
