Gorilla Coffee - Proceed With Caution

Gorilla CoffeeGorilla Coffee - Now I know the title of my post may imply that the coffee is bad. Quite the contrary.

The coffee is good. Very good. BUT - VERY STRONG.

The beans are ground-to-serve, so you know the coffee is as fresh as can be.

I favor chocolate with my coffee, so I ordered the mocha. Delicious. Creamy, rich with just the right amount of chocolate. While I find most mochas to be more like a glorified hot chocolate, Gorilla's mocha is more like a dressed up latte.

After one mocha, I was bouncing off the walls talking a mile a minute. Just ask my boyfriend.

As for him, after one coffee - he felt so wired and faint he needed to get a muffin to tame his stomach. Warning: Strong coffee can be hard on an empty stomach (although his was certainly not empty after just having finished a huge brunch). That is how strong the coffee is.

If you are in need for a serious caffeine fix head over to Gorilla Coffee - judging by the never-ending lines, the secret's out. This is the go-to place for true coffee aficionados.

For true addicts- order your own beans online, but don't be surprised if your heart starts beating out of your chest. This is the real deal.
