Over the past year, they have honed their craft and developed their own unique roasting techniques to ensure each cup of Compass Coffee is nothing short of extraordinary. 

The new Compass Coffee location will feature a carefully curated selection of coffees, espresso drinks, and pastries. From rich and bold blends to smooth and delicate single-origin offerings, there will be something to satisfy every coffee lover's palate. Each coffee bean is sourced directly from farmers around the world, ensuring fair trade practices and supporting sustainable agriculture.

"This location holds special significance for us as it allows us to be an integral part of the community we've come to love. We can't wait to share our passion for Real Good Coffee and create a warm and inviting space where people can connect."

The Compass Coffee flagship cafe and roastery will offer comfortable seating, providing a welcoming environment for customers to relax, work, or engage in meaningful conversations with friends and neighbors.
