Compass has multiple different locations throughout Washington, D.C. The first one was opened in the historic Shaw neighborhood and now there are four in the district. It was started by two Marines who met and bonded over coffee while serving in Afghanistan together.
Solid Wifi that does not require a purchase which is always a good thing

When I went to Compass Coffee, I ordered a Nutella Mocha. This was something different for me since I usually HATE coffee. Check out my bio for confirmation. This specific Mocha was something different that I ended up enjoying. It was a twist on a classic drink that I thought was executed quite well. Since this is coming from someone who prefers tea to coffee 100% of the time. I would highly recommend this drink.
Overall Rating: ☕️☕️☕️☕️
Good coffee overall but on the expensive side of things. The menu, compared to other shops that I have visited, is pretty basic. There is not a lot of room for straying from the basics. There are some flavor additions, but not as many are out of the box compared to Starbucks and other chains. While the menu is basic, it still contains a variety of different teas and coffees for sale that allow you to branch out and try something new. The shop itself is pretty basic and modern inside with bright lights. It has a more work vibe inside than a study vibe, in my opinion. I would recommend going back to in order to try different drinks on their menu. My only qualm is that it is not the most economical place to go to study/work if you’re a broke college student who doesn’t want to pay $5 for a small Mocha. Overall, it’s a good time but not for those of us who are ballin’ on a budget
