 Elpida Café & Roastery is a wonderful little corner coffee house! Their coffee is deeeelicious; you just have to try one of their lattes. If you like tea, their matcha latte is to die for! They have something for everyone, and lots of different eats to choose from. You can also order your drinks with decaf, almond milk, etc.

If you are looking for an authentic experience, and rich, flavourful coffee/tea, Elpida is a must!

Thanks Justin

About Us


Hope is in Our Mission


We at Elpida Cafe & Roastery want to do our part to spread hope in any way we can, whether big or small, as HOPE is in our name. 

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. 


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!


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. 

Our Coffee

Sourced from Organic Fair Trade farms

All of our coffee at our Café & Roastery in Keswick, comes from Organic Fair Trade farms, because not only do we strive to serve the best quality coffee possible, grown without the use chemicals, but we also believe that everyone should be treated and paid fairly for their labor, and that includes the hardworking coffee farmers around the globe! 


 Colombian coffee is grown at a higher elevation, common for premium coffee, leading to its medium-high acidity an a strong, bright, tangy flavour. It has slightly nutty accents than reminds one of hazelnuts. 


 Guatemalan coffee is grown at a higher elevation resulting in it highers, fruity acidity. The coffee is smooth and creamy, bursting with decadent fruity and chocolately flavours. 


 Nicaraguan coffee has clean, smooth well balanced flavour, with mild acidity. It has a sweet almost citrus-y and chocolate-y flavour, growing at higher elevations like in Guatemala.  


Sumatran coffee is highly sought after for its unique and complex flavour profiles. It has medium brightness and acidity, with spicy, earthy and chocolately flavours. Darker roasts enhance, the rich complex flavours this coffee holds!  

Peru (Decaf)

 Organic decaf coffee from Peru is less acidic, with a smooth yet bold flavour. The coffee has been decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process, which is 100% chemical free. Perfect for coffee lovers who want to enjoy the great taste of organic Peruvian coffee, without any of the caffeine!
