Compass Coffee is committed to the Middlebury neighborhood in Akron, Ohio. We see business as an avenue for justice in an under-resourced area of our city. Profits from our locally made pastries and coffees from roasters all over the country allow us to invest in housing, economic development, and place-making with our neighbors in Middlebury.


Drink Coffee. Do Good.


As part of The Well Community Development Corporation, Compass Coffee seeks to invest resources back into the community of Middlebury. Every time you purchase a cup of coffee from Compass you are investing in the housing market in Middlebury. Every dollar of profit from our shop will go toward creating home ownership in the Middlebury neighborhood.

The Well CDC

As a place based community development corporation we care deeply about our place, Middlebury. Middlebury is the neighborhood just east of route 8 and north of I-76 on the east side of Akron. As an organization we fight for a thriving community with flourishing individuals, learn more about The Well CDC CLICK HERE.

A Gathering Place

At Compass, we see coffee as a relational connector, and want our place to a true "well" in the Middlebury community. Compass Coffee is a place where no matter who you are, where you're from, the money you make or don't make, the color of your skin, the roof over your head or not over your head, you can come, stay, and connect.



Compass Coffee functions as a multi-roaster. We get our beans from somewhere new every 3-6 months. This gives our customers an opportunity to experience some of the best coffee beans from around the United States, and  the world. We’re proud to be working with the best roasters in the country to bring great coffee, right here to Akron, OH. Drink Coffee, Do Good.
