About the Owners

Elpida Café & Roastery was formed because of Justin Zielonko, a coffee enthusitast's genuine passion for great tasting coffee and helping others in need. Now joined by his wife Amanda, what started as a simple hobby transformed into the cafe and freshly roasted coffee business it is today, with one key goal: to provide premium coffee (and tea) to anyone who isn't willing to settle when it comes to quality. 


Committed to Fairness

We pride ourselves on providing coffee from Organic Fair Trade farms across the globe. Here at Elpida Café & Roastery we believe that everyone deserves fair treatment and pay and we do our best to encourage that! So many coffee farmers are stuck in a cycle of poverty, but we do what we can to help break the cycle. 


Dedicated to Quality

Our coffee is roasted fresh on a regular basis, we are a roastery after all, and won't be sitting on shelves for months at a time, like what is sadly the case for so many coffee brands found in your local grocery store. We pride ourselves in providing our customers with the best quality coffee possible, and that includes coffee roasted fresh per order. You will taste the difference!



In addition to only using coffee obtained from fair trade coffee farms, we do our part to help the local community, because community matters to us.

A significant portion of the tip money goes towards a different local charity or organization each month, spreading seeds of hope around Georgina, Ontario. Other donations are accepted at various times for different global organizations and humanitarian aid.
