I didn’t open my ๐ŸŽ

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 Cafรฉ 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!

Two beautiful powerful anointed ladies! Selflessly bringing help and revival around the globe!

Packed shop and long lines today!

Don’t Bring Gifts To This Birthday Party!

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!

GUESS WHAT?

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 ๐ŸŽ 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

What You Need To Know About The Revival Before It Ends Tonight!

I know that you haven’t heard much from me lately…The Tent Revival was just that good!

The perfectly cool evening breeze comforts you after all the energy released during praise and worship. Houses around the neighborhood can hear all of the good and miraculous things done by Jesus! You really leave the service different than how you entered! Sadly tonight’s service is the last one! Here’s what you should know before it happens!

You will laugh and have a great time!

You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalm 16:11

We’ve all been having a great time under the tent each night full of laughs, fellowship and excitement! These evenings can really help you get through the next day with all the joy you need!

Experience it all with coffee!

Yes Compass has been opened! You can grab a beverage or a fresh baked Jodi Bakes dessert before and after service tonight! All proceeds go towards providing clean drinking water to other countries and rescuing victims of human trafficking so drink up! โ˜•๏ธ

Free Frappes in Church ย 

I got a free sip of one of the most ordered cold beverages at Compass. After such a GOOD word and amazing service today at HopeNYC Church, we were all treated to a free sample of the caramel frappe! So refreshing and satisfyingly sweet after a sermon about abolishing anxiety.  Where else can this happen?

After a sip, many of us rushed straight downstairs to the cafรฉ for a bigger size. It was beyond delicious.
This beverage is popular all year round! Yes even in the winter! Kids love it just as much as the adults!

Do you like Reggae?ย 

Sunset, breeze and reggae right on Rockaway Blvd! Just a few photos of what endless summer nights look like on Fridays evenings at Compass! This past Friday was Reggae night! There was some dancing, relaxation, and great conversation! People sipped fresh cold fruit juices and great-tasting frappes out in front of Compass’ seating area. There were delicious desserts from Jodi Bakes and a taste of Jamacia. Enjoy endless summer nights at Compass every Friday this summer at 7pm!

Where am I?

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  ๐Ÿช at Compass. I also tried the new creation! Creme Brรปlรฉe 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 Cafรฉ. 

Compass is on a mission to help provide clean drinking water to impoverished countries  ๐Ÿ’ฆ and help victims of human trafficking! Every cup of coffee โ˜•๏ธ Cake ๐Ÿฐ Thing ๐ŸŽ  you purchase goes towards the mission and helps make the world better ๐ŸŒŽ

My Iced Latte Review!

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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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! ๐ŸŒŽ Try foods from around the world! 

After Service Snack

The oatmeal cream pie tonight was delish & FREE! It was crunchy creamy & compact! Not to mention the rich great-tasting center that’s totally Jodi Bakes! I wish I can have it for breakfast tomorrow morning! After today’s life-changing Hope-Day service, it certainly made the perfect after-service snack!
