Lorca first opened in 2012 at 125 Bedford St. in Stamford as a career shift for New York architect Leyla Jenkins, who gained an appreciation for churros and cortados while growing up in Spain. Jenkins was previously a barista at Espresso Neat in Darien before opening her Stamford store.

The Cos Cob coffee bar will bring new additions to the Lorca menu, including empanadas made with Fleishers’ chorizo and a Spanish tortilla from Jenkins’ family recipe. Lorca replaces an in-house café that Fleishers owned and operated.
