Best coffee in town, employees are friendly and helpful. They also stock cute souvenirs (socks, anyone?) to browse while you wait in line.

Unless you HAVE to have SB, go here for a change. Great location! Good coffee. Tip of the day: Get coffee in their standard mugs (not to go) and you get FREE refill. Get a cookie, scone, or other breakfast item, take it outside and sit along the river! Fabulous! We went here multiple times during our two week stay... More

This is a wonderful place to gather in Estes for a great cup of coffee. Many choices of coffee and snacks. They have cute little items in the store for purchase along with their coffees. Another great thing about this place is the outside. It is right along the river walk in downtown. They have provided many tables and chairs... More

Line at front door every morning and parking is tight but the line moves pretty quickly. Coffee is very good and so are the breakfast sandwiches. Seating was easy to find in the grassy area by the shop and also by the river.

We were looking for some coffee and light breakfast sandwich and went to (you know who), but the lines were so long we walked back a block or so to Kind Coffee and found a very short line, friendly service, sample menus (I had the sausage and egg wheat bagel), better tasting coffee and wonderful outside seating by the river....

We recently walked by Starbucks in Estes Park and observed a line with two dozen tourists in need of a familiar coffee experience. Continued walking a few more steps to Kind Coffee and found: bright lighting, delicious iced coffee, generous seating (HINT go to the back and check out all the seating around the corner), welcoming staff, and only a...

Kind coffee is a great place to get coffee, smoothies, and breakfast. I visited here nearly everyday for my coffee fix and was never disappointed. The staff was fun, friendly, and worked at a fast pace. There is plenty of room to sit inside, but most people opt for enjoying their beverages outside by the creek. I ended up buying... More

This is a great little coffee shop that could cater to her about anyone. They have good coffee and interesting little products. They also have plenty of room whether you want to sit inside or outside.

We were delighted to stumble upon Kind Coffee. Delicious breakfast options like breakfast burritos (vegetarian and gluten-free options) and bagels. Very good coffee and tea. The best part is sitting out back along the river to enjoy the morning sun, dog watching, and the sound of the river's applause to the day.

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.
