Who we are?

Chik Monk is a distinctive coffee company that stands out for being farmer-owned and specializing in locally roasted Indian coffee in the US. Founded by Nandini Jayaprasad and David Beil in 2019, their mission revolves around enhancing coffee appreciation through sustainable farming practices. Originating from family estates in Chikmagalur, India, Chik Monk emphasizes the importance of eco-friendly cultivation methods that contribute to superior coffee quality while supporting farmer livelihoods. They focus on producing high-quality Arabica coffee, ensuring environmental conservation, and improving the lives of local coffee communities through various social initiatives. Chik Monk is deeply committed to the welfare of both the environment and the people in the coffee-producing areas.


Journey "From our Mountains to your cup"

We have been on the move since the end of 2018. Our family and the local community worked hard on the December harvest to ensure the best beans made their way "From Our Mountains To Your Cup™"



Together with Oceana Coffee, we went through hours of sample roasts and cupping sessions until we felt ready to introduce Chik Monk to the public. We are so grateful for the support from Oceana - for their master roasting abilities, words of encouragement and support through this amazing process.

Blondie's Vegan Bakery  located in Boynton Beach, FL became our second retail shelf. Our delicious coffee complements their outstanding vegan dishes and pastries. We love meeting customers at our Saturday samples.

Full Bloom, Miami Beach, FL: March 30, 2019

We recently provided our coffee to Full Bloom, the first vegan restaurant in Miami Beach, FL. We hear the Chickpea Omelette is amazing!

We are excited to expand to other locations in the coming months. Stay tuned for where we will sample next!

Update: We did some special blends for Full Bloom for a short period which ended in 2019. However, make sure to stop by their restaurant and try their food and let Alessandro know we said 'hello'.

Next Generation Packaging: De-plasticize our Life

We are committed to being sustainable and eco-friendly. We are going to migrate our 12oz and 1lb coffee packages to a one-of-a-kind, 100% compostable bag from Elevate Packaging. We choose to spend more to save the rainforests and the ocean, one plastic-free coffee bag at a time.

Watch this space in the next few months for local beach clean-up initiatives.

Thank you all for being our customers!
You are the reason we do what we do.

- The Chik Monk Team
