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.



There’s an important process before you savor that first sip. Specialty coffee beans need to be complemented by a master roaster. Our coffee is roasted locally each week by an award winning roaster to bring you beautifully awoken beans.  

We dream for a day when our oceans and beautiful landscapes are plastic free. We are committed to de-plasticize our everyday lives. In order to get there, we are using home and industrial compostable packaging. 

Paying it Forward
We are paying our good fortune forward. We are committing a percentage of our total profits to invest in and to empower women and children within the farming communities from where we source and toward ocean cleanup efforts.
