Each year when we visit Estes Park for a fall trip we grab a cup at Kind Coffee. The staff is exceptionally nice, and the coffee is just delicious! By buying coffee at Kind, the local economy grows stronger - keep it Kind and keep it local! :)

I often have meetings at Kind Coffee and they are always very accommodating. A lovely and quiet spot to meet and you seriously can't top the coffee, food, and hospitality!

This summer I visited this shop 3 times, b/c the hot chocolate is so good. The only disappointment I had was the last time when they made it lukewarm, esp as it was really early in the AM and I wanted HOT. While I enjoy their Mexican hot chocolate, it is a bit of a steep price.

Our friend met us here for coffee one early morning. The coffee and the breakfast food items were wonderful, fresh and hot. We would definitely choose to go back. I could have stayed in this one spot all day if there had not been so many other things to see.

I like this place and visit it most times when I am in Estes Park. I like strong, flavorful coffee, which this place has. They have great oatmeal for breakfast, which is a way to save money when eating out in Estes Park for your meals. They have tables outside, along the creek path. A relaxing way to spend time...

Great Coffee on the river bank. Stay away from the chain and stick with Kind Coffee. The staff is very friendly and the location could not be better.

We love Kind Coffee because it's local, the staff is competent, friendly and relatively fast. It's not a place where the breakfast sandwiches are pre-made so it takes a little time if you've ordered a breakfast burrito or croissant sandwich. But it's worth it. There is often a queue but it's manageable and again, worth the short wait. We often... More

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.
