Agape Java was established in May of 2010 while Ellen and Josh were living in Chicago, IL. Inspired by her experiences at Intelligentsia in Chicago and Ivy League Barista Academy in San Diego and driven by her passion for sharing the love of Christ, Ellen had a vision of opening a coffee shop that would serve a high-quality product in a clean and welcoming environment. In 2018 Ellen and Josh purchased Ellen’s family home and has painstakingly converted it into the coffee shop she envisioned over 10 years ago.
Now, more than a coffee shop, Agape Java is a great place to relax and unwind with a glass of wine, a local craft beer, and some sharable light-bites. Hang out under the canopy of 300 year old oak trees, enjoy a game of cornhole, catch up with friends and family in the family room, or book the conference room for business or small group meetings. Come on in and #feelthelove!
