We walked from the visitors' center the first day, and returned another day, walking along the river from our lodge. Tried to get coffee for the road the day we left, but could not find a parking spot.

Order taken quickly but then had to wait 15 minutes for two coffees. Had eaten our cookie whilst waiting. Only one barista making coffee and when delivered not an acknowledgment or... More

I went here three times in my two night stay in Estes Park. The coffee is excellent - and so are the pastries. The place is very friendly, with lots of comfortable seating options. This includes sitting outside overlooking a big creek right behind the complex. Parking here can be tough as the lot is small, and it's right on... More

This is a locally owned coffee cafe. They serve great coffees and teas and fresh baked goods. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is next to the river that runs through town. A great place to stop before, during or after shopping in downtown Estes Park.

Description
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.
