Sips of Hope celebrates a special birthday! Two years of making a way of freedom for precious girls enslaved by human trafficking! Two years of providing clean drinking water to quench the thirst in several countries! Two years of serving good quality coffee and pastries to New Yorkers and providing a tranquil area in a busy city.
Today Compass Café celebrated the BIG 2 by baking over 200 cupcakes!
Giving 200 presents in sealed envelopes!
Putting out the balloons
What made today even special was that we got to MEET THE FOUNDER of the Zion Project: Pastor Deven Wallace! Today, we got to hear about her incredible story of how it started and the vision she received from God.
I’m excited to come back to Compass this week and bring back my envelope! Each envelope has a gift. It can be a macchiato or an Amazon Firestick. A $100 Compass gift card or Thanksgiving dessert platter! Even the thought of a moyen hot chocolate or free cookie excites me! I didn’t open my gift yet but I’ll keep you posted when I find out this week!
This weekend, you are invited to one of the greatest birthday celebrations in New York! This Sunday is not going to be ordinary. Compass Coffee turns two years old and this birthday has been incredibly and carefully planned.
Compass is a Missions coffee shop that was created to help people in other countries get clean drinking water and rescue girls out of human trafficking through its partnership with The Zion project!
We will hear from the actual founder of the Zion Project: Pastor Deven Wallace. We will see her live and she will be preaching THIS Sunday at 10:30am at HopeNYC. Right after service, Compass will actually be giving you presents 🎁 as we celebrate this birthday! There will ALSO be special surprises for people who purchase a cup of coffee, dessert or item that day!
The fact that Pastor Deven will be at HopeNYC on Compass’ Birthday is not a coincidence or luck but this was indeed a divine appointment set up by God. In fact, Compass is a divine idea founded to help others and it will continue it’s mission even stronger as it steps into it’s second year! Read more about the MISSION here
Looking for a place for fun Friday evenings 🌇 and great coffee ☕️? Need somewhere to hold a meeting with your group or cozy spot for a coffee date? ❤️ Maybe you just want to step out of the chaos of life and relax or get some work done in peace. I know a secret! In fact many New Yorkers know!
Sitting at here at Compass looking to see what’s new! I saw fresh baked Cheese Danishes by Jodi Bakes and the first ever COOKIE CAKE 🍪 at Compass. I also tried the new creation! Creme Brûlée Cheesecake!
A very pretty and petite cheesecake with a torched golden surface topped with cream and a fresh raspberry. All sitting on top of a tasty crispy brown crust. The creamy, fruity, crust flavors made such a complete and outstanding combo. It was so delicious and made a memorable impression on my taste buds. It made people want more. It was nothing ordinary. In fact, it didn’t taste like anything in New York but all the way in Europe as if I were sitting at a Paris Café.
Compass is on a mission to help provide clean drinking water to impoverished countries 💦 and help victims of human trafficking! Every cup of coffee ☕️ Cake 🍰 Thing 🎁 you purchase goes towards the mission and helps make the world better 🌎
This is the opinion of my iced latte this morning at Compass!
All the flavors your tastebuds should experience with coffee! Strong nutty taste from the espresso which is creamed with cool almond milk stirred with the right teaspoons of sugar. I craved strong and sweet and got it! What do you crave? There’s choices in sweetners, syrups & milk to make your ideal cup of hope! Just ask 😀
This Saturday morning as I work here on the laptop, I see tweens sitting together with frappes, soda, and Sunshine snacks. I’ve seen people today enjoy the Compass sandwiches talking how great the pesto spread tastes. A little boy who actually likes chai tea lattes and a friend of mine that dunked an oatmeal cream cookie in a milkshake. How interesting! Should try it one day! This is a pleasant place to be in the rain right now. Stay dry everyone!
TOMORROW AT 10:30pm! Awesome place to bring your dad! Empowering encouraging Word, gifts and more! It’s always such a special service! He will be blessed!
HOPE DAY SERVICE THIS WEDNESDAY AT 7PM!
NEXT SUNDAY AFTER SERVICE! 🌎 Try foods from around the world!
One cup quenches the thirst of a child miles away. One cup rescues a victim, held in the horrific hands of human trafficking. One cup can kick-start your day with a smile in each sip!
That’s what the XELA did to me. It’s an aromatic Guatemalan slow roast that’s like PEACE in a cup! It relaxes you yet energizes you in the most smoothing and subtle way! Because it does all of this, the XELA is actually my favorite coffee at Compass. Feel free to leave a comment below and share what’s your favorite coffee?
It’s 7pm. The doors of Compass are closed! But wait! People are inside. How do I know? Did I see them? No! I heard them!
I heard a harmony of voices hover around as it echoed down the hall. I opened the door to a group of people gathered together about to start something….actually finish something.
It’s the HopeNYC Choir! They have been practicing in the cafe after hours for the past few nights. This is not an ordinary cafe. During the day it’s your go-to place for coffee and comfy seating but by night, it can be a birthday celebration, open mic night, young adult gathering, brainstorm for a project, ministry meeting, filming location and more! I believe great things start here.
So what does the HopeNYC choir sound like? Come and hear them.

Have you ever tried this pumpkin spice latte? I encourage you to visit Compass Coffee and grab this latte for fall 2016! Very genuine autumn taste and smell. The spices relaxes you while the coffee wakes you.
This cafe is an amazing must-see fall destination. The decor, the desserts, the atmosphere, the aroma…I can see that they take fall seriously! Pencil in your visit to this cafe to your activities list right between hay rides and apple picking because it’s worth the visit. Every beverage, dessert and item purchased here goes towards helping children in different countries get clean drinking water.
