Excellent attitude, knowledge and black coffee – the focus of the store. The concept here is to bring in coffees from all over the world (hence, Compass), so that means beans from: CoffeeCollective from Denmark, HASBEAN from the UK, Intelligentsia and Stumpton from the US, Industry Beans from Australia, Supreme from New Zealand/Australia, Urban Coffee Roasters from Hong Kong... The list grows, changes, and evolves. For espresso-drinkers, they only use Urban Coffee Roasters for the moment. Wonderfully, you can now step out on to the balcony overlooking Nanjing Xi Lu and run your hand through the leaves on the plane trees. Originally opened in fall 2017 in Jing'an Villa, but moved here in 2018.
