Abstract
Bags of coffee are delivered to Chicago on a large cargo ship.
Description
Bags of coffee beans are lowered from a large ship labeled "MORMACPRIDE," loaded onto a cart, and driven into a warehouse. Two men in hats retrieve a handful of beans from a bag labeled "BRASIL - CAFÉ - ESTADO DE SÃO PAULO - SANTO 90 - CHICAGO." The two men drink from small coffee cups next to the cargo ship. Aerial shot of workers tying the bags together below deck. A smoking man directs the men with a wave of his hand. Interior shot of three men drinking coffee while standing behind a large cake that has "WELCOME TO 'CHICAGO'" written on it and a miniature ship on top. The room fills with more coffee-drinking guests.
