Gorilla Coffee

97 5th Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11217
The big red roasting machine is pretty and it smells great. This is a very cool but in no way annoying coffee place. It is a real boon to the quality of life on Fifth Avenue. The people who work here are clearly experts but not in a creepy pretentious way. More importantly, they serve great coffee and have lots of room to sit and work on your laptop. Really, it would be weird to sit and not be looking at a laptop. They also have a low-tech bench option outside. You can buy in bulk for home, too.
