About the Owners

Elpida Café & Roastery was formed because of Justin Zielonko, a coffee enthusiast's genuine passion for 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 - and do our part to help others along the way.


Committed to Fairness

 We at Elpida Cafe & Roastery are proud to join the women farmers of the Café Femenino program! We stand with these courageous women who fight for the credit they deserve and the voice they need to fight inequality. Café Femenino provides high-quality coffee beans that come with a one-of-a-kind support for women farmers across the world. Café Femenino disrupts the traditional economic system by paying women directly for their work, giving them the opportunity to take on leadership roles in their cooperative, and providing them with the title to the land on which they farm.  


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!

Live Coffee Roasting Sundays at 3:00 pm!



$1 from every bag of coffee sold goes towards the construction of a water reservoir in a coffee community affected by poverty.

In addition to supporting the coffee farmers we depend on, we do our part to help the local community, because community matters to us.

A portion of the tip money goes towards a different local charity or organization each month, spreading seeds of hope around Georgina, Ontario.
