The Times drops in on Gorilla Coffees reopening after a staff walkout and finds its 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, Theyre still local, and theyre still small, and its still good coffee.
