Answer Source

I assume that db.users is the result of co-monk wrapping a collection.

Since co-monk uses thunkify, db.users.find() will return a thunk, which async/await cannot handle (I think by design).

Instead, you can use regular promises, which Monk supports out of the box:

// Assuming `db` is a Monk instance:
var usersList = await db.get('users').find({});

I found that you need to remove any calls to co-monk, otherwise its effects will "linger" and the above code will fail as well.

You can probably still store a reference to the collection in db if you like:

db.users = db.get('users');

// then, later:
let results = await db.users.find(...);
