About the foundation Lebenshilfe Zollernalb

Lebenshilfe Zollernalb is located in the region of Zollernalbkreis in the south of Germany. The objective of
Lebenshilfe is the well-being of people with mental disability and their families. It is committed to ensuring
that disabled people can live as independently as possible from childhood to a high age and that they are
given the aid and support they need to do so. The Lebenshilfe of Zollernalb is active for almost 50 years
now and has over 600 members.

Roasting coffee as meaningful work

An important part of the aid that Zollernalb offers are meaningful activities so that the disabled people can
participate in the working life as well. There are several activities available like working in the production
of metal and plastic, cleaning room or catering. Roasting coffee is also an available activity. It started out
in 2008 when we supplied a W1 and W15 Coffee Roaster and in 2011 they ordered an additional W15.
With these roasters they offer their members the opportunity to roast fresh coffee beans by themselves.
Lebenshilfe Zollernalb is a member of the “German Röstergilde” and the roast coffee is being sold in their
own shop. This also leads to other related activities like brewing coffee, gift service, packaging, coffee
events, catering and an internet shop.
