Park Slope residents favor this spot's brews, which use fair-trade beans roasted in-house.- Google
"The beans are pretty good--I got a latte here and was satisfied with it."
"Cold brew coffee lives up to the hype, and so does the maple latte."

I've given Gorilla Coffee a few chances and I really want to like it, but it's just "okay". We're so spoiled for choice in this area of Park Slope. After trying the drip a couple times, this place just isn't for me. Once, I brought my laptop to get some work done, but the music/ambiance just wasn't right - loud music, uncomfortable chairs. Another time, the guy behind the register actually gave me a hard time for presenting their loyalty card for coffee beans when I wanted a punch for my cup of coffee. I've never bought beans, so they're the ones who gave me the wrong punch card in the first place. The benches out front are a nice place to sit and watch 5th Avenue people and traffic roll by.

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?

I used to frequent here when I lived localy, was visiting ny, I took the car out and drive 15 minutes to get a coffee here, the gentleman in a fedora at the counter was not welcoming to say the least. Disappointing that they had no almond milk and then the guy tells me he can't take a credit card under $10 ??? I am very familiar with the credit card processing industry and setting minimums like that are not allowed, I understand that for some businesses pay a transaction fee around 20 cents and on low ticket items it's not worth it but this is a coffe shop for gds sake. I still offered him to charge me the extra 20 cents to cover his transaction fee and with a nasty attitude he refused and canceled my order. When I told him it was not legal to set minimims he said call go call the cops.

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.
