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.


We have worked with numerous local organizations in the South Florida region to raise awareness for different causes. We work with Lox Farms by sponsoring coffee at their fundraising dinners for FreshRx an initiative where they send complimentary fresh produce to patients in need at the Jupiter Medical Center.

We were in the midst of doing other local events when our business was disrupted due to Covid-19. We will resume our hands-on local philanthropic work once we reopen fully. We are currently donating 15% of online sales until December 31, 2020 to support the The Hero Foundation that does social work and work for the environment.

We are also committing a portion of our profits to educating children especially girls and empowering women in our coffee and surrounding communities in India.

Over time we plans to build solar panels, classrooms, bathrooms and potable filtered water in some of the local schools.
