Brewing Now: FRG Partners with Compass Coffee

 

It shouldn’t surprise anyone who knows Farmers Restaurant Group that when we decided to create a unique, proprietary coffee blend for our restaurants, we wanted to work with an independent local roaster who not only knew a lot about coffee, but one that had a knack for interesting, tasty blends. We also wanted a roaster who would be willing to really take the time to work with us to find the perfect brew for all of our restaurants. Compass Coffee, a neighbor, whose moniker—Real Good Coffee. Made in DC—was an obvious choice.

Our Beverage Director, Jon Arroyo, was already familiar with Compass Coffee when he set out to make friends with owners Michael Haft and Harrison Suarez to see if they could come up with a coffee blend for our restaurants. Arroyo was seeking that “just right” cup of coffee that tasted recognizably delicious and bold on its own, and would also pair well with the diversity of food available on our menus. This is asking a lot of one cup of coffee, but Arroyo was expecting nothing less. The partnership with Haft and Suarez was perfect.

The expert roasters from Compass approach their craft using smart technology combined with sensitive palettes. Working with Arroyo, they began the process of testing a full range of coffee blends from across the world, joined together through a wet blend process that really highlights the flavor profiles. Their differing tastes all independently landed on what would soon become our First Bake Blend. This well-balanced blend makes a delicious cup of coffee we think everyone will enjoy.

We invite you to stop by one of our restaurants for a cup, with a doughnut or a breakfast sandwich, or on its own. We think you will agree — it is just right. Guests at Farmers & Distillers can also purchase our First Bake Blend retail for $14.99 to enjoy at home.
