A "great" cup of coffee in Carroll Grds or nearby?
Do any coffee houses serve Gorilla/Joe & the Art of Espresso/similar styles of coffee in the Carroll Gardens area? I don't want to head to Park Slope every time I need that fix!
Stumptown will have a roastery opening in Red Hook VERY soon. As for an actual Stumptown coffee shop, we'll likely have to wait until the new Ace Hotel opens. But hopefully the Stumptown wholesale presence in NY will be similar to what it is in Portland, OR - in regards to their rigorous training sessions, encouraged so strongly they're virtually required, that bring all businesses serving their beans up to snuff. I just moved to Brooklyn from Portland, and It is AMAZING how almost no one knows how to pull a shot. Sad.
Cobblestone Foods on Court has Gorilla by the pound and sells cold-brewed Gorilla iced coffee, which is pretty tasty.
There's also a café on the corner of Union and Hicks that brews a good cup of Gorilla. I can't remember the name of the place, but you can't miss it -- it's on the west side of the BQE, across the street from Ferdinando's and next to Petite Crevette.

Though not quite Carroll Gardens...Root Hill Cafe on the corner of 4th Ave and Carroll St. makes excellent cappuccino and espresso and also brews Clover Coffee.
Also very good coffee at Naidre's on Henry St...the coffee is from "Porto Rico Importing Company" in the West Village.
