Think first DC and DC Small business started the #MadeinDC Program as a response to the momentum and growth of the Maker and creative economy in Washington, DC, the Made in DC Program will function as a citywide campaign and platform, creating opportunity for Makers to come together for resource and experience sharing, as well as function as a conduit and messenger between Makers and local government.

Compass Coffee is dedicated to making really good coffee. Nothing fancy, nothing too crazy or hard to pronounce, just really good.
Located in the neighborhood of Shaw, Compass Coffee was founded by two former marines. Everything they do is built around simplicity. From their espresso drinks and their signature blends to the layout and ambiance of their cafe on 7th Street. The coffee shop offers wholesale and retail as well. Next time you are in the area make sure to stop by for some fresh local brewed coffee.
