Vivid owns a pretty big space, including a large seating area in a backroom. The front room, though, is still pleasantly intimate. The coffee's nice, too. I got a cappuccino, my standard coffeehouse order.

Squid Perks: Vivid Coffee
Farm-to-table is a big deal in Vermont. Independent farms still make up a sizable portion of the industry here and the state's population is eager to support them. Vivid Coffee seeks to tap into that mentality. It's admittedly trickier with a tropical crop like coffee beans. The company develops relationships with individual farms in places like Santa Barbara, Honduras (see blog post here). Vivid sells its coffee through local retail stores and coffee shops as well as online. They have their own cafe in Burlington, about half-a-block off of Church Street, the city's pedestrian mall. We visited this past weekend.
