“It’s early afternoon, and I’m here in this hip Burlington cafe called Tamp. I’m sitting on an iron stool at a wooden bar, enjoying a turbo americano. This is an espresso-based drink, made with hot water and supercharged with 4 shots of espresso. It sure is invigorating! There’s quiet indie music sounding in the background, and the light melodies seem to have effected a calm and reflective mood in the shop. While the baristas quietly engage in their down time cleaning rituals, an elderly man reads today’s newspaper in the corner arm chair, and a sharply dressed young professional wanders in for his mid-day coffee. The atmosphere is cool and modern: on the walls, I see local artists’ paintings, and the store workers operate an ipad at the cash register, set atop a bold stone counter. Looking up at the neatly displayed chalkboard menu, I can see that they offer quite the selection of caffeinated beverages: long blacks (a double shot of espresso with hot water), cappuccinos, hand pour coffees, and even specialty teas. I’ll definitely be returning to this small venue soon for a quiet spot to read and for some splendid espresso to sip.”
