About coffee processing and packing. Shot outside of the Chase and Sanborn plant in Hoboken, NJ. A man at a rotating table smells coffee in small glass cups, using a spoon to waft the scent (could be quite comical), while man pours coffee into these cups from the same pot and rotates table. Coffee beans in sacks are stacked high in a food processing factory. A man empties bags of coffee beans into a mixer, to be roasted. A man operates the mixers. A man checks the darkness of the roast against a sample and then pours them, from a chute, into a huge cooling bin that mixes the beans with a fanlike arm contraption--CU of it stirring the beans. Man in white shirt operates the grinding machinery in a warehouse. A woman weighs the ground coffee on a balance.
