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.

From the moment you step into Kind Coffee, you feel as if someone has been kind to you. Seriously.
The staff is welcoming and patient. The food items are good and varied. The coffee? All I can say is, I save room in the car to haul home multiple bags of the coffee to enjoy at home.
This is a coffee shop, so the menu is limited. I love the toasted bagels with cream cheese. I also enjoyed a molote (a type of stuffed bread sandwich), breakfast egg and cheese on a bagel, and biscotti. The brownies are moist and delicious.
The coffee is micro-roasted, organic, fair trade. It is also devastatingly good. The only USA-roasted deep, dark rich coffee with no bitterness.
There are comfy chairs, good music, and no "trendiness".
I urge everyone going to Estes to try Kind once.

Ran in here for Iced coffee twice. Usually iced coffee is a bit watered down. Not this. It was PERFECT. They brew it, then keep it in a container so that when they add ice, it doesn't become some watered down swill.

Fun place to have coffee or breakfast. I appreciate locally owned, and not Starbucks. The owner is a sincerely nice person and she does a great job. Plus the prices are within reason. Can't miss here! I love sitting by the river and having my coffee or sitting inside on inclimate days at the big table or in a soft chair.

Visited the small coffee shop in Estes by the stream (I think there are 2 different branches)...top-notch organic/fair-trade coffees, cordial service, and AMAZING atmosphere...the outdoor walk is just picturesque and lovely. Would certainly go back. Support Kind Coffee!

Mife wife and I were very pleased with our experience at Kind's Coffee. Good selection of great coffee in a most pleasant atmosphere. Only downside was congestion at the front door due to the ordering station being too close to the door.
