After a mass employee resignation forced it to shut down for more than two weeks, Park Slope coffee shop Gorilla Coffee reopened today, with a new paint job and refinished floors. City Room saw customers getting their lattes and spoke to co-owner Darlene Scherer. She said the walkout was "unexpected" and that other neighbors and businesses were supportive of them, "From a business owner’s standpoint, we feel like we’re doing everything right: paying everyone well, and setting up health benefits and encouraging learning in coffee and sending people places and paying in full. So now we’re kind of just getting back to basics. I said to everybody, ‘Let’s learn about coffee and do a good job and be happy.’"
