San Felipe´s farm was founded in the early 1920s by a local Guatemalan family, who worked hard to change a rocky land into a prosperous one, specializing in growing exquisite quality Arabica coffee beans.
The farm is settled on Panibaj Village, at 1800 meters above the sea level in Patzún Chimaltenango, at the heart of Guatemala, Central America. Panibaj is surrounded by the Atitlán and Tolimán Volcanoes on the river bank of the Rio Madre Vieja.
Café Don Lipe receives its name as an homage to our founder, Don Felipe Benavente, who taught his children and grandchildren to love and respect the land and its inhabitants. Don Lipe, as everyone used to call him, is warmly kept in the memories of those who still work in the plantation.
