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.

We frequented this local coffee shop several times while in Estes. I especially loved the Cubano. It's a testament to the quality of the coffee that we kept going back, given that well-known chain is just a block away. I already miss it!

Ok, so the chain coffee shop is 20 yards down the street, but you have to come to Kind. The coffee is very easy to drink, the staff works fast and why not support the local shop?? Keep it up, Kind is the place to go!!

A trip to Estes Park is not the same without coffee from Kind. Single handedly the best iced coffee in town. Do yourself a favor and give them a try.

We rented a cabin for 4 days in March, just southeast of Rocky Mountain National Park. The owner of the cabin provided a complimentary bag of Kind Coffee for our coffee pot. I could hardly believe how delicious it was! It is so smooth, and rich, and flavorful, with, somehow, many layers of sweet deliciousness! I like my coffee black.... More

Located right on the river and brimming with local traffic, this roaster located on the main drag is one popular spot - and rightfully so. The staff is courteous and helpful and the menu is everything a home-grown coffee shop should be. Grab your drink and food and head out back for a table on the river. This surely won't... More

Heard about Kind coffee from a friend who had just traveled through Estes Park. It is a hopping city, but in Kind coffee, despite the line out the door, the atmosphere is calm and peaceful. Delicious coffee, good snacks and tables by the river. Why would you not go here? The line moves quickly, I promise!

No matter how difficult it is to find a parking space in summer, I go here anyway. Tried all other coffee places in Estes & this is the BEST! Love sitting by the river too! Be kind, drink Kind coffee!!

I loved the coffee here. I was too lazy to brew anything while on vacation so I stopped in here most mornings and the coffee was very good (I had the celebration blend). More mornings than not there was a line out the door (if that tells you anything about how good it is), but consequently it made for a... More
