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.

Coffee with a View

This was top on my list of places to return to on my second visit to Estes Park. The coffee is great, but the ambience is very soothing. There is outdoor seating on the river and a cool, hippy type vibe that just makes you smile.

If you are tired of the big S, then this shop has Colorado roasted coffee that doesn't taste burnt and while the tourists crowd into the other place, Kind coffee has a lot of color with the locals that frequent this shop. Also has much more abundant seating than the big S.

This is a wonderful place to meet friends, knob onto the internet and or enjoy your favorite beverage while relaxing next to the river. During the nicer times of the year, you can sit outside and enjoy the sights & sounds of Estes. They have wonderful gift ideas ~ reasonably priced !

This is a wonderful coffee shop with creative coffees and delicious baked goods. It is also organic, friendly, and affordable. They have many seats with a lovely view of the river to enjoy with your brew. We had the Milky Way and a S'mores Latte with a chocolate chip cookie. It was all so good that I actually felt bad...

Stopped in today for our first visit. The place was trendy, comfortable and the wait staff friendly. We had the medium brew "Kind coffee" and it was great. We will make this our preferred stop for coffee now during our Estes trips! Great job folks keep brewing the tasty beans..

You've got to stop here, not Starbucks! Not only is Kind eco-friendly, their coffee is terrific! I got the Avalanche, and I don't normally like sweet drinks, but this was heavenly. My husband and I were headed out of town and didn't think anything was open that early. I was really craving some coffee and breakfast, but I absolutely did... More

This place- simply put, made me happy! Great view, great service and the perfect cup of cappuccino. I did not have to change a thing! I asked for the local favorite in the cappuccino category and the barista enthusiastically suggested and served up one amazing cup of goodness!
