    Visitors to Park Slope needn't limit themselves to Starbucks when they're looking for a java fix. The neighborhood is loaded with independent coffee shops, each with its own flavor. Gorilla Coffee serves organic, fair-trade coffee roasted in Brooklyn, and its tables are often occupied by local writers and other freelancers taking advantage of the WiFi. De Luxe, run by a metal-loving husband-and-wife team, serves Doma coffee and plays the likes of Danzig to offer auditory stimulation along with all that caffeine; the tiny storefront sometimes attracts crowds that threaten to spill out the door. Café Regular pours cold-brewed La Colombe coffee and, in accordance with its name, celebrates shop regulars in newsletter articles. Finally, mini-chain Café Grumpy has earned respect from hard-core coffee drinkers with beans roasted at its Greenpoint location.—JZ
