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.

Cutest little shop in Estes Park. They have organic snacks and coffee. Must Try!

I popped in one morning and had their orange tea and my husband had their organic breakfast blend coffee. I promise it was better than starbucks. They sell Lara bars too. It was a perfect breakfast on the go. But the cool part, if your not in a rush is that you can go out back and sit by the... read more

Best coffee we had while on vacation in the Denver area. Quaint little shop with friendly staff. Great hot chocolate. Try the Caramello!

No complaints here. Good cup of coffee for $3. Very busy place. Was nice to have a hot cup of coffee on a cold day as we walked around the downtown shops.

This was my first visit to Kind Coffee as it is on the edge of town and I had never seen or heard of it before. Well, a local shopkeeper, after hearing my complaints about a chain coffee shop in town, recommended that we go to Kind Coffee as it was tasty and fair trade and that the people were... More

This is such a pretty place located so nicely by the creek. They have a nice selection of snacks and pastries and there coffee/latte/teas are all very good. Add to that that their staff is so nice and friendly and you get a perfect place! Went there almost every day during my week long stay and was never disappointed.

Great organic fair trade coffees... friendly staff... a local hangout right on the Riverwalk. My favorite stop for a morning pick-me-up!

Delicious coffee with a fine selection of pastries and lunch fare to be enjoyed with a view of a beautiful river! This coffee shop has a most comfortable seating area for reading, visiting, meeting, and enjoying....and excellent wi-fi.

Great little coffee shop - while there's a Starbucks in town - we are travelers who love to support local businesses.
