Dreamer, Founder and Caretaker of Java Green Coffee & Tea Inc., DJ Kim is interested in nature, life, and peace and harmony for all beings. DJ started Java Green in 2003 with his family and quickly watched it grow from the first truly eco-friendly coffee shop in D.C., to the capital’s most popular vegetarian restaurant and an oasis for raw and gluten-free diners, thanks to his knack for unique recipes.

As he adapted a vegan, and now raw diet, DJ has watched an entire community sprout up around Java Green. He is ever willing to take time to share his wisdom and experience on healing the body through food. One of the key leaders of the green movement in DC, DJ is still active in many organizations he helped found, including One Common Unity and Live Green. A constant creative, D J is always creating delicious recipes and looking towards the future.
