About Us

In 2006, Ipsento was founded with the idea in mind that all people are on a journey of self-discovery. The word “Ipsento” was invented by the companies founders. It is the combination of two latin roots: ipse = “self”, sentio = “to discover”. As the founder’s journey led them down a different road of discovery, the door was opened for Ipsento’s current ownership to take their global coffee travels, stories, theories, experiments and knock-knock jokes and introduce coffee drinkers to what they found to be a profoundly deeper experience of coffee. And, while life can be rich and full without incredible coffee in the picture, our research indicates that less than seven percent of people agree. We are terribly serious about offering only the most brilliant, sustainable coffees in the world — and far less concerned with our ego to cram all of our business standards and ethics into this fine paragraph.
