On Thursday, Luca Moribato celebrated the opening of his own coffee shop, Coffee Luca, inside Something Natural Greenwich.

The idea for the coffee bar, which had its soft opening back in April, came about after Mr. Morabito searched for a space for his own coffee shop and encountered the high rents in the Greenwich Avenue vicinity.

Local commercial realtor Diane Roth connected Luca to Seth and Molly Hirschel at Something Natural, where there coffee bar was an afterthought to the sandwiches, salads and juices they are known for. They also do a brisk delivery and catering business.

Roth made the connection, and the Hirschels agreed that there was potential for an expertly run coffee bar to supplement the Something Natural business.
