The Times drops in on Gorilla Coffee’s reopening after a staff walkout and finds it’s pretty much business as usual. “If they had made it clear that my coaching technique was not being received well, I could have changed it,” says co-owner Carol McLaughlin (her partner Darleen Scherer says she also thought everyone was happy). A customer who was surprised to hear of the strife says, “They’re still local, and they’re still small, and it’s still good coffee.”
