Golden Bean North American Roasting Competition 2019

Award winner (Silver medal) in the Latte Category

When we launched we knew that we grew delicious coffee. We were ecstatic and beyond grateful to be awarded the Silver Medal for the latte category in the Golden Bean North American Roasting Competition 2019.

Our family has been growing coffee in Southwestern India for four generations. My father along with my sister has continued to perfect the growing for a beautifully balanced bean. Last year marked the first year that we branded our family’s product to the end customer. It gives us great pride to showcase and be recognized on the same stage as many other well-known coffees and brands.

We are grateful for our family’s year-round effort to cultivate our annually harvested high quality coffee. We are equally appreciative for the support and guidance from a world class roaster. 

Cheers to a Silver in the Golden Bean and look out for many more delicious offerings from Chik Monk.
