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.

Great coffee and right next to the river.

Right on the river and lots of windows bringing in the sun and warmth and beauty of the hillside. Good area for meeting with friends or family or having a quiet conversation. Oh yes, and great coffee too!

It is not a trip to Estes Park without a stop at Kind Coffee, at least not in my book. This place has a great location, plenty of seating, and always delivers quality beverages. I highly recommend the Vienna.

Up at the crack of dawn and looking for a place to get some coffee. Thought we'd try something other than the usual place where I have a gold card and rolled into Kind Coffee on Elkhorn Ave., just down the hill from the famed Stanley Hotel. What a pleasant surprise! The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful and greeted... More

I love to stop in here and grab a coffee then sit out back along the river. The service is great and the location could not be better.

Stopped in for a coffee with friends to warm up. We also got a chicken salad wrap that we shared. The coffee was very good and freshly made and the wrap was a nice little snack.

Friends & I stopped in Kind Coffee after a visit to Rocky National Park based on the recommendation of a local person. We all enjoyed our coffee & even purchased some to bring home!

Kind is just top notch. Great food, great location downtown, even with a close parking lot, incredible views, outdoor seating, plenty of indoor seating, and really good coffee. We are never disappointed coming here!

Locals prefer Kind Coffee to Starbucks a half block away. Kind Coffee offers a selection of pastries with good hot coffee. It has a large, comfortable seating area with overstuffed chairs, group tables and chairs and free wifi, so that you can sip coffee while relaxing with a good book, or have a small business meeting at a table while...
