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.

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.
