The Passion of Joan of Arc – a cinematic landmark

La Guarida is known for presenting great films. We have shown more than 300 titles so far and we cannot be prouder to show one of our favorite films:

The Passion of Joan of Arc
a film by Carl Theodor Dreyer
English subtitled
with a stirring performance by Maria Falconetti

Tuesday, September 7th at 6:45 PM
Doors open at 5:45 PM
Reservations with dinner required
Limited capacity
Tel. 099 806 8071

It is widely regarded as a landmark of cinema, especially for its production values, Dreyer’s direction and Falconetti’s performance, which is often listed as one of the finest in cinema history. The film summarizes the time that Joan of Arc was a captive of England, depicting her trial and execution.

A film you won’t see anywhere else in Ecuador. We present only the best titles in cinema’s history. This film is a great example.

We are located in Mariscal Lamar and Luis Pauta. Take the tranvia and get off La Cuadra station. You can’t miss us.

The Hop Factory: Best place for craft beer and coffee in Cuenca

Come to The Hop Factory this Thursday and Friday from 1:30 to 7:30 PM, for some great craft beer. We do home deliveries on Thursday from 8 AM to noon.

We are on east side of Cuenca, Calle del Himno y Bandera Nacional. We have darts and chess boards available to play, as well as outdoor seating.

Our available beers are: Bourbon Barrel (11.5%) $4, IPA (6%) $3, Stout (6%) $3, American Amber Ale (6%) $3, Pale Ale (5.5%) $3. We make a truly “old school” beer that is unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

Low cal/low carb beers: $3.
Our Rowdy Rabbit is an all-natural Light Blonde Ale that only has 84 calories and 5.8 carbohydrates but still has 4% abv. This slightly hazy beer is light in color/calories/carbohydrates but still has a Citrusy Tart flavor (15 IBU’s) that is created with not only our hops/grains but stands out because of our use of coriander.

Our Light Jamaica and Light Maracuya (Passionfruit) beers are even easier on your waistline. 72 calories, 4.9 carbohydrates, 3.5% abv. and they both go down like juice. These shandy-like beers ended up very popular with our taste testers (The Hop Family (c;).

We are also the only place you can get Black Honey and Café Dona Julita brand coffees. Black Honey is our coffee liqueur made in Vilcabamba. Makes a great White Russian (16% abv $15/750ml bottle).
NEW COFFEE PRICES The coffee we have available in both beans and ground. “Premium” is a medium-dark roast $4. 50/400g,
“Gourmet” is a medium/Columbian roast $5.50/400g and our “Honey” is a medium dark roast originally created just for our coffee liqueur $6.50/400G. Honey we will need a week advance for the order so we can special order what you need.

Please have all orders in by Wednesday to ensure on-time delivery. $18 minimum for free delivery under $18 we add $2.

Recommendation for Croz Cell Technical Service, cell phone repairs, cell phone accessories

My cell phone wouldn’t charge. I took it to two different shops. At first they thought it was because of my plug. However, after trying out new plugs without any success, I was told my phone could not be fixed. I then went to Carlos at Croz Cell. He discovered the problem. An internal receptor was not connecting. He promptly fixed it and it now continues to work very well. If you want expert care with success, given promptly and in a most friendly manner, then go to Carlos Orellana at Croz Cell. He’s my “go to man” for all needed repairs.

Recommendation for Elizabeth and Mateo Pet Sitting, pet sitters

We were planning to be out of town for three weeks — the longest we had ever left our dog, and we heeded the advice of others on GringoPost to hire Elizabeth and Mateo. They stayed in our apartment while taking great care of our dog (and plants!).

We got regular updates, pictures, and videos. They contacted us with any questions or concerns, and we knew our dog and apartment were in safe and competent hands. Mateo is in the last stage of becoming a vet, and Elizabeth is not far behind. That just added peace of mind.

Their rates are very reasonable, and they are really professional in how they run their pet/apartment sitting business. We look forward to using them again.

Recommendation for Isabella Latta, facilitator

Last Friday I went to help pack up and move some things from the apartment of a friend who is moving back to the Atates because of illness. His family will be a strong support for him there. With him, when we came, was Isabella Latta, a neighbor, friend and facilitator. She is helping him with all aspects of the move – furniture sales, flights (coordinating with his daughter), getting to Guayaquil, closing out the phone, getting PCR tests… He doesn’t have the capacity to do any of the details at this moment in time.

I was impressed with Isabella’s kindness, patience, ability to work with Ecuador’s and the US’s complicated systems, command of English, and ability to interact with us in the midst of her work moving our friend back to the States.

Isabella lived in the States for 21 years in both NYC and California. She had 2 years of paralegal training and managed large retail stores while in the States. She is accomplished and able. She is even going with our friend on the transport she arranged to Guayaquil to be certain he gets on the plane safely. You couldn’t ask for any greater help than he is getting. She has a special quality of warmth and humor that makes even difficult situations manageable.

DEFY continues to make organic, vegetarian, gourmet soups and desserts. They’re conveniently frozen, so you can enjoy your treats whenever your heart desires.



We want to send you a warm greeting from Sourdough tanta la madre masa, I hope you are well and safe. We are baking new products and always with security measures. It is important to remind you that our breads are sugar free, free of animal products, without chemical preservatives, lactose free and very low in gluten thanks to the fermentation process.

Double D’s: There’s still time to order but not much

All the goodness of jalapeño poppers and chicken put into a pasta casserole–you cannot go wrong with that. The salad is a cooling compliment or can stand alone as a meal in itself. Two new sweets are featured–a tangy citrus option and a twist on a classic.
