"Hand Sorting. Burundi coffee is hand sorted 7 times during the production process, first at the farmer's home and lastly at the dry mill. Dry milling is one of the final steps before export. Coffee is hand sorted, run through the mill to remove the parchment husk, and then bagged in GrainPro before being put on a truck that will take it to a ship, which will take it to coffee drinkers the world over."
