Not only is this a great cup of java it is owned and operated by a local. Warm atmosphere and lots of wonderful free trade goodies to purchase. From my understanding, there are coffees named and sold for fund raising efforts for the community. Great place! 5 stars all the way!

While Estes Park is a tourist destination, this coffee shop would attract connoisseurs of caffeinated beverages no matter where they were located. The staff is always pleasant and knowledgeable about their products. The espresso drinks are frothy and fabulous. I normally just grab a cappuccino or latte and then ride up to the park to hike and take pics. Enjoy... More

Warm atmosphere, attentive staff, and beautiful scenery along the river. This is the place to be after a winter hike or sledding adventure in Rocky Mtn National Park.

Grab a cup of great coffee and sit by the river to watch and listen. Or sit at a big table with friends and catch up on work or school news. Kind Coffee is an Estes Park gathering spot for locals and tourists alike, but only those who appreciate organic, chemical-free, fairly traded, shade grown coffee. Kind supports the community,...

This is where the locals go! With their menu offerings inside and the beautiful river walk right outside, it is a great place to stop in any time of day.

I visit kind coffee every year when I am in Estes. They have fantastic coffee and staff. My only complaint is the weird layout of the coffee shop. But they have amazing views behind the coffee shop. Grab a coffee and go out back and sit!

While the atmosphere is fairly typical of small town coffee shops, the coffee falls short. As a roaster myself, I was expecting some high quality craft coffee brewed with care and intent. Instead, I received some burnt auto drip mass produced tasting coffee. It also felt like I did not belong because I was not a local. Most of the... More

Delicious and very environmentally conscious coffee shop. The seating outside is peaceful beside a small creek running behind the place. (I visited October '14)

Thank Amy P

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.
