The roasting process
The roasting process is one of the most important stages in the processing of beans. As well as making green coffee edible, it gives it the characteristic aromatic and organoleptic profile of each coffee blend. The roasting of the beans, together with the blending of 5 different varieties and types, is more than technical skill, it is a true art in which the Cooperative, with the help and teaching of an old Master Roaster, has tried its hand during the period of experimentation, succeeding in developing a good ability to create quality blends and to know how to carefully manage the roasting phase, to which each type of coffee responds in a physically and chemically different way.
Each packet of coffee in its own way becomes unique in flavour.
This choice has rewarded us, in the sense that over time we have succeeded in creating our own trusted clientele who share the sense of the project and who regularly buy our coffee, finding it ethically sustainable and above all good.
The slow traditional production process (up to 10 times slower than the industrial one) with the slow roasting and natural gasification method is considered the only way to bring out the refinement and aromatic complexity of high-quality coffees. The wait is well worth it. The coffee has a dense, aromatic flavour and can be enjoyed without the addition of sugar or sweetener.
We as free women have chosen to actively engage in an all-female enterprise that enhances artisan knowledge and generates social inclusion. Because only work offers dignity and the possibility of real redemption. The Lazzarelle coffee was born by bringing together two weak subjects: women inmates and small coffee producers from the southern hemisphere. We buy the coffee beans from the Shadilly cooperative which promotes cooperation projects with small producers. Then we added tea, infusions and herbal teas to our artisan coffee production.
SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENT
Our coffee is produced, at every stage of its manufacturing process, without adding additives, respecting the natural preparation times of the ancient Neapolitan artisan school. Our coffee packs are made of aluminum-free plastic so that they can be recycled with the plastic in separate collection.
Up to now 56 women have alternated in our cooperative, each with its own history, different and identical to the others. Many of them, before working with us, had never had a regular employment contract. With us they learn a trade, but above all they acquire awareness of their rights and their possibilities.
