Park Slope residents favor this spot's brews, which use fair-trade beans roasted in-house.- Google
"If you want a strong cup of coffee, then you have come to the right place."
"Cold brew coffee lives up to the hype, and so does the maple latte."

I've given Gorilla a few chances and I really want to like it, but I just think it's just okay. We're so spoiled for choice in this area, and after trying the drip a couple times and the iced coffee once, I'm thinking this one just isn't for me. I brought my laptop to get some work done once, but the music/ambiance just wasn't right. Another time, the guy behind the register actually gave me a hard time for presenting their loyalty card for coffee beans and not cups when I wanted a punch for my cup of coffee. They're the ones who gave me the wrong punch card in the first place because I never bought beans there. The benches out front are a nice place to sit and watch 5th Avenue people and traffic roll by.

My HS nickname being "The Vanilla Gorilla" (no relation) I had to stop in for a cup o' Joe. I had a medium of their dark roast, which accentuated flavors reminiscent of eggplant and pure Earthy-goodness. The atmosphere is modern and airy yet not commercialized, they somehow managed a perfect blend of comfort, modernism and cutesy-divey-hipstery-comfort that you have come to secretly love so well (only to deny it to your friends later), so come on in and fancy yourself a cup of fair trade. You know you want to.

Love their coffee, but the bar is always slammed. Once of those places that needs to enforce a time limit on laptop usage - literally every time I visit, 100% of the tables have people camped out and working on laptops. Worth a visit if you're in the area to get a strong, tasty, fresh-made coffee, but if you just want to buy beans you can always pick them up elsewhere (I believe Whole Foods sells their beans).

The coffee is really good, strong and tasty. The place is full of cultural young people reading philosophy books and having conversations about the meaning of life. Good place to relax and enjoy a nice conversation with a cinnamon roll and a gorilla coffee in front of you.

I love Gorilla coffee. However over the years, they've been increasing their prices and decreasing their products. I use to make special trips out there just for the coffee, make gift packages but not so much anymore. The coffee is still wonderful but becoming less and less worth the price.

Ask for the iced decaf pour-over. I normally don't like decaf but this is a splendid drink. Lighter that cold brew, very bright and flavorful. Perfect on a hot summer day. Plenty of seating as well.

Beats the pants off Starbucks. Definitely the place to get a cup of coffee if you are taking a stroll on 5th Avenue and can resist the urge from adding on a coffee to your order of truffles at The Chocolate Room. The Gorilla always has lots of people studying/working, features solid 90's alt rock, and intrigues with its Soviet Russia-style red lighting/color scheme. And did I mention the coffee is fantastic and makes you want to beat your chest?
