On Christmas Eve, partners Lisa Osornio and Matt Gress opened Tight Squeeze Coffee Shop at 125 College Street in Burlington. The shop takes the place of the erstwhile Daily News, but Osornio and Gress have completely renovated the tiny space. The shop is now open daily, though hours vary.

On offer is a variety of caffeinated pick-me-ups that aren't available elsewhere in town; Osornio says she made a conscious choice to incorporate ingredients not offered at Burlington's other coffee shops. "I wanted to create recipes that were different than what everyone else was doing," she says.

So, in addition to standard espresso-based offerings brewed with a custom roast from South Burlington's Earthback Coffee Roasters, visitors can sip unconventional lattes. The milky drinks come in varieties like matcha green tea, yerba mate, Earl Grey tea and chocolate. Also on offer are organic stoneground hot chocolates (with or without chile) and snacks from Barrio Bakery.
