Website Kicking Horse Coffee

Wake Up & Kick Ass

YOUR DAILY MISSION: Get the café meals a fixin’ and our town’s tastebuds kickin’, through working with our kick ass culinary team to create an exceptional food experience.

WHO ARE WE?

We roast Canada’s #1 whole bean coffee. Our Arabica beans are 100% certified Organic and Fairtrade. We’ve been doing this for over 25 years, smack dab in the middle of the Rocky Mountains.

And our coffee beans aren’t the only ones winning awards around here. Our human beans kick ass too! Kicking Horse Coffee has been a certified Great Place to Work® since 2015. In 2018, we were named the #1 Best Workplace in Canada. Whoa! We believe creating a workplace that offers great careers and access to an exceptional lifestyle. It’s why we’ve made a commitment to become a living wage employer.

In 2023 we opened the doors to our reimagined, flagship café. It’s brand spankin’ new! It’s as close to fresh roasted coffee as it can get. Where human beans and coffee beans are connected. Where everyone who comes through the doors leaves slightly more caffeinated and a whole lot more loved.

WHO ARE YOU?

You bring the flavour, zest, and fiery passion for all things food and taste. Maybe you are a seasoned (pun intended) professional in the culinary arts, or maybe you are just getting into the scene, but one thing is certain, you love food.

You’re not afraid to spice things up and try new things, but you’re also happy to follow a recipe. Is it just us, or does you and our brand-new café sound like the perfect pairing?
