My favorite coffee place in town. Delicious coffee from the Intag region. Also, a wonderful selection of fair trade goods that would make great gifts. It's a nice place to relax with friends and enjoy some coffee.

Charming cafe with Intag coffee. A larger menu would be appreciated. The coffee is very good, but overpriced.

This small and very friendly oasis provided me and friends with a magnificent lunch of crepes and blackberry sauce, followed by a scrumptuous apple pie, plus fine and much needed café con leche, and with charm and readiness.

A artesanel cafe pushing the "If you shop here you´ll save the world" message. Coffee was good, chocolate good quality but expensive as it was fairtrade.

Description
A fair-trade coffee shop, La Casa de Intag sells delicious coffee (both whole bean and ground) from the beautiful Intag region, an area of cloud forest a few hours north-west of Otavalo. Sit down and sip on a steaming hot cup of coffee, or buy some to take home. La Casa de Intag serves breakfasts, pancakes, lunch, sandwiches, cakes, and chocolates. You can purchase artisan crafts, handmade soap, and natural shampoos and creams, all of which are made by the people of Intag. La Casa de Intag also has wifi available for customers to use.

This store and cafe was formed when the threat of mining projects in the biodiverse Intag Valley spurred the Intag communities to develop sustainable economic alternatives to mining. A collaboration of Mujer y Medio Ambiente (a womens' handicraft cooperative), AACRI Coffee (an organic fair trade coffee cooperative), and DECOIN (Defensa y Conservacion Ecologica de Intag) work to make La Casa de Intag possibile. All profits benefit the communities in the Intag region.
