“Meh”
Review of Gorilla Coffee

Gorilla Coffee
Ranked #9 of 147 Coffee & Tea in Brooklyn
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 May 2013

I'm always surprised by the line out the door in the morning, so there must be something to it. If you like very very strong coffee, you'll probably like it, if not, skip. If you order an iced coffee - you will get a vacum packed carton of their own brand cold brew over ice - can't say it's my favorite. Pro Tip - they sell Blue Sky muffins here, if for some reason Blue Sky is out of whatever muffin you're craving, walk two blocks to Gorilla and they might have it.

Love the Gorilla pictures inside the shop. Good tea and coffee.
Can get crowded but line moves quickly.

It's a very cool (make that exceedingly cool) coffee shop. The roasting machine has been moved into a warehouse so the product can be mass produced and brewed for the masses wherever they want it. It's a little to caffeinated for my tastes. Also strong when brewed on premises, but that's the way (uh-huh, uh-huh) they like it.

Coffee is good and STRONG. Not bitter. I even buy some to brew at home.

I love the coffee here, it's fantastic. I don't stick around, however, because the seating area just isn't all that inviting. what's hilarious is that the majority of the people sitting down all have the same mac powerbook so it feels very BE ONE OF US. BE ONE OF US. But the bench outside is nice and on occasion you can give a dog some pets, which adds an extra 'awww' to your day.
