KIND offers Estes Park's only roasted coffee- all certified organic and fair trade. We're also a full service coffee shop- organic teas, fresh fruit smoothies, milkshakes, and a slew of breakfast and lunch items. While you're here, enjoy free WiFi (with any purchase); riverfront seating and access; great Estes Park souvenir shopping and don't forget the dog sitter (or friend or family) so get some poundage (of fresh roasted beans) to take home with you! Are you a local (or tourist?) Find Kind Coffee on Facebook to take advantage of Deals and be notified of specials and new coffees/events. History Established in 2002. Kind Coffee is dynamically committed to supporting local communities and promoting the sustainability of our environment. We consider it our mission to provide customers the opportunity to positively impact the planet through the purchase of our high quality roasts. Each bean that comes out of our roastery is chemical free, fairly traded, shade grown, certified organic, Swiss Water decaffeinated, good for you and the environment. In other words, Kind is what coffee should be. Kind's intent extends beyond a profit, attempting to reach the consumer's principles, perhaps enticing other businesses to do the same. We are thrilled to be able to give of our time, energy, money and, of course, coffee, to non-profit organizations and other causes and events in order to give back to the community that supports us. This example, we hope, will encourage coffee drinkers to keep choosing fairly traded, shade grown, certified organic coffee that celebrates life and the preservation of our world.

Lunch

Stopped by for a quick lunch and coffee. The breakfast burrito (sausage) was very good and a full serving. Get the side of salsa, as it really compliments the flavor. The coffee was excellent. The service was very friendly. Sat outside by the river. Very relaxing lunch break.

Kindly roasted coffee beans brewed into excellent coffee drinks to be sipped by the river or inside in a cozy, comfortable setting. Good bagel sandwiches and other treats also, happily served up by the efficient,friendly staff.

We always come here for our coffee and morning treats whenever we are in Estes Park. Today did not disappoint. Gluten free options were delicious and the kids loved their bagels. We love their coffee SO much that we get the beans shipped to our home in VA for special occasions. Excellent!

This was our first time to experience Kind Coffee. It was excellent. We went out back door with our coffee where we could walk or sit by the stream that runs through town.

When in Estes Park, bypass the chain coffeehouse, and visit Kind Coffee. It's a welcoming, light-filled place, and the Kind Coffee brand is amazing. There's a brew just for you, as well as snacks and meals. Lots of tables, comfortable chairs and sofas for quiet conversation, games, and even meetings. Outdoor tables along the Big Thompson, where people-watching along the... More
