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.
The production of Neapolitan coffee and infusions from the women's prison in Pozzuoli.
How it was born
In 2010, Lazzarelle was born in Naples, a social enterprise that produces coffee, tea, and infusions following the ancient Neapolitan tradition, within the largest women's prison in Pozzuoli. It's a female-led challenge that values artisanal knowledge and promotes social inclusion. Many of the women involved in the roastery pose low social risk. They are the very 'Lazzarelle,' the girls who may have gotten into a bit of mischief and are now trying to make amends because only work offers dignity and a real chance at redemption. Today, thanks to their employment in the cooperative, they not only learn a trade but also gain awareness of their rights and their potential.
Carcerary Economy - The Importance of Rights
The work carried out in prison serves to prevent the exacerbation of mental and relational imbalances and counteracts the restriction of physical abilities. Furthermore, the division between work and rest moments bridges the world of the free with that of the incarcerated, providing a sense of daily normalcy. To promote the social inclusion of the inmates at the Pozzuoli prison, Lazzarelle's social project ensures that through the processing and roasting of coffee, many women who had never had regular employment contracts now feel like an integral part of a society that includes them, recognizing their equal rights. Lazzarelle coffee is the result of bringing together two vulnerable groups: incarcerated women and small coffee producers from the global South. In fact, their beans come from the Shadhilly Cooperative, which promotes cooperation projects with small producers. Over the years, they have decided to expand their artisanal production to include tea, infusions, and herbal teas.
Sustainability and Recyclable Packaging
Lazzarelle coffee not only tastes good but also respects the environment! In fact, the production phase follows strict processing procedures without the addition of additives, respecting the natural preparation times of the ancient Neapolitan artisan tradition. Moreover, the packaging and packaging materials are made entirely from plastic without aluminum, making them recyclable alongside regular plastic waste in recycling programs.
