About Ipsento

In 2006 Ipsento was created with the idea that all people are on a journey of self-discovery. The word “ipsento” was invented by the company’s founders and is the combination of two latin roots: ipse- “self” and sentio= “to discover. 


The vision for Ipsento is to provide a space and product which encourages growth through the experience of delicious and well-crafted products made by people who care. We envision sustainable growth as the most satisfying coffee brand in Chicago. With a focus on unique and well-crafted food and drinks, outstanding customer engagement and a relentless pursuit of excellence and delight, Ipsento will be recognized as the go-to in Chicago for an immensely satisfying experience.

“The best coffees tell stories.” The idea behind our mantra is that our coffees will speak for themselves. All coffees have stories of farmers, pickers, mills, landscape and weather that contribute to their flavor. The story of the coffees we source does not end with us, rather we want to add to the story by providing you with the tools and expertise to add the next chapter.

Ipsento is far more than a coffee shop. It is a community of people on a journey to experience life more fully. So, when it comes down to the products we offer — and the way that we offer them, Ipsento is determined to make your coffee experience distinctly delightful.
