Your typical South American coffee experience will usually be a disaster. I've even had half a cup of melted chocolate in my Latte, ugh... but not here!

Cafe de Nucallacta knows everything about coffee. These fine Ecuadorian beans get roasted and brewed to perfection here. Do not miss this cafe, it's a must visit!

Let's not forget to mention that the prices are the most reasonable prices I've found in Cuenca, for the quality, it's unbelievable pricing. We've enjoyed a full breakfast for two, with multiple drinks for under $7.

Highly recommended.

Rumi knows what he is doing with his coffee. It was really great to find a real coffee shop that had great coffee with a choice of different roasts. I was impressed that the owner took time to explain his roasting process to us, helping us to appreciate the difference in his coffee.

We sought this place out during our 6 days in Cuenca. We ended up going there 3 times over our last 3 days, that's how much we liked the coffee. Their cakes are nice and if the "Frenchy" is there, definitely order the crepes. If I were to live in Cuenca for any period of time, I'd be a regular here. Prices are very reasonable.

So glad we found Rumi for our coffee whole beans or ground for your coffee maker. They have great espresso drinks and food too. Breakfast is really good too and very good price.
