Coffee and Wellness
Chik Monk is directly sourcing specialty coffee from the family farms of Balekola and Balupet Estates (http://www.balupetestate.com/). The history of the farms dates back four generations in the tranquil Western Ghat mountain range of Chikmagalur, India.
Kick-back and experience the East with Balekola and Balupet Estates. The coffee you’re savoring today was cared for many thousands of miles away. The coffee plants are protected by a lush canopy of trees. Cardamom, pepper vines and fruit trees live among the coffee plants imparting soft hints of spice and citrus to the coffee.
It took four seasons, mists of the monsoons and dedication from the local community to meticulously hand pick and then naturally dry the beans on bricks in the soft winter sun. The dried beans are then sorted, graded for quality and then bagged. Chik Monk then sources the coffee directly from the farm.
Our company sources the highest quality coffee direct from family estates. We source from farms that harvest specialty coffee, that are committed to sustaining the wildlife, the environment and caring for the local coffee communities.
Apart from sourcing from high quality sustainable farms, Chik Monk donates a portion of its profit to enhance the well-being of the local community by providing housing, healthcare, access to clean drinking water and schooling aid for the younger children.
