My daughter just graduated from college and during the four years that she lived in Washington, D.C., she discovered an incredible array of truly fabulous places – from monuments, to museums, theatres, and concert halls. And, as a self-proclaimed “foodie” she also found the best that the city had to offer from bakeries (Sprinkles), to bars (The Tombs), to restaurants (Sweetgreen and Farmers, Fishers, Bakers). But, one of her top finds was Compass Coffee … and now it’s my favorite, too!
Compass Coffee has several adorable café locations throughout the city. But, even though I don’t live in our nation’s capital, I can still enjoy one truly amazing cup of joe (or four) every morning, because their special blends are available online starting at just $13.99 for a 12 oz. tin. Of course, I prefer the 5 lb. bag, so I can be sure that my coffee station never runs out! (Retail $69.95)
Not only is the coffee exceptional, the story behind the company is, as well. Two friends and former Marines bonded over coffee and brewing techniques during training and deployment to Afghanistan. When they returned to the States, they founded Compass Coffee.
Why a compass? I imagined it was because Marines are always prepared for anything. (Trust me. My dad was a Marine.) But, according to founders Michael Haft and Harrison Suarez it’s a bit more aspirational. “We made the points of the compass our logo as a reminder that, if they do nothing else, our coffee and our cafes will always help our customers get their bearings and point them in the right direction for the rest of the day.” As a die-hard coffee addict, that’s a sentiment I can certainly understand!
Ready to try Compass Coffee? I suggest the new autumn blend. Unlike fall’s pervasive (and dare I say, overdone?) “pumpkin spice,” this brew has milder hints of maple sugar, vanilla, and toasted oats, making it a perfect way to start the season’s crisp mornings.
