Nice relaxed atmosphere, exceptionally good coffee! Good place to have a 1 on 1 meeting. They out-source with a local bakery for some of the best baked goods around! I go there when I can.

I love places like this: funky, casual, affordable, friendly. My main critique is that the espresso drinks (espresso, cappuccino etc) are not up my standards. They are simply not strong or intense enough. I don't know if it's the coffee they use, or the espresso machine itself, but it's not what I'm hoping for when arriving in the early AM... More

Good coffee and décor and wonderful windows to relax and watch a small New England College town get down to business.

Always try to find the local coffee shop in small towns to support, and even gave this one two tries. Won't go back, because in my opinion, DD's dark roast is better! Sorry folks!

A stop at the Gorham Grind is always top of my list when I'm passing through the town of Gorham. The coffee is excellent and it's nice to support small local shops who obviously care a lot about what they are selling as well as the community they are part of.

The coffee ===> Top Notch! The atmosphere ===> Inviting and laid back! The service ===> Mellow, friendly Maine...nice! Though, since there was only one person working when we were there, things got a bit slow if there were more than 2 people needing to be served. But, worth the wait!

A mecca for coffee lovers in Gorham. Coffee, latte, expresso, cappachino--etc. Also pastries, muffins and other fare. Owner is the creator of Rocket Fuel beverage-- which is carried in many area restaurants, shops and markets-- as well as the proprietor of a coffee "food truck" that travels to Maine festivals, concerts and other events.

One of best coffee shops I have ever been in. The cozy atmosphere and welcoming staff make it a must stop at when we are visiting home. Having lived in Gorham for many years, the Gorham Grind was someplace we went to several times per week. The coffee selction is amazing, pastries excellent and the Rocket Fuel is a must... More

Great place to go with friends. The large windows and bar provides a view of the pedestrians and traffic passing by. Always interesting for the eyes!
