A coffee stop dream on a sunny day by the pure sparkling water of the Big Thompson River. Inspiration from nature not just from caffeine .

Kind Coffee has awesome coffee, great treat/snacks and a great location with a wonderful cozy atmosphere right by the river. We took visiting friends to Kind to meet up with their other friends, it was a treat - great for the kids too as they offer natural /healthy snacks and fresh cold water.

This is our "go-to" on our way into RMNP each time (about once a month). Great coffee! Laid back atmosphere- great place to sit and chill after shopping the art shops along the strip.

I went there twice this past month before RMNP missions. It's great. the burritos are filling and tasty and under $6. Im no connoisseur, but the coffee is really good. The baristas were friendly. The place is right on a nice creek too.

I stopped in and ordered a coconut chai. It was great. Ended up grabbing a cookie and a pecan pie bar to go and both were delicious. Service was wonderful - people are really friendly.

Hail storm at Estes Park meant that we need to hang around somewhere till the weather clears. Kind Coffee beckoned us. A cute little place with a streaming brook behind & steaming coffee within!

While in town we found this cute shop, filled with natural, organic merchandise. They have a big shop with tons of seating. The coffee and hot chocolate is great. There is a great walking path with a creek out back. Would like to spend more time here.

Thank JessieSho

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.
