RReeaaddiinngg Reading : Choose the best answer. (GAT 65) Passage 1 Given the plight of present-day coffee farmers, one might assume the coffee business ___22___, perhaps plagued by razor thin margins and floundering demand. Nothing could be further from the truth. Globally, the industry is valued at more than $ 200 billion. However, less than 10% of that aggregate wealth stays in producing countries, and only 5 to 7% makes it to the farmers themselves. Much of the rest goes to wealthy companies and their executives, who are almost exclusively based in North America and Europe. As prices paid to farmers have steadily declined, what consumers pay for coffee ___23___. Between 1996 and 2018, the average retail cost of a 16-oz. bag jumped from $ 4.04 to $ 9.67 and cost of a cup from $ 1.25 to $ 1.94. That would be fine if it followed a trend of larger returns passed to deserving producers, but that's not the case. If you bought a Grande Latte later today, you would probably pay around $ 3.65. The farmer responsible for those beans would receive $ 0.02 or $ 0.03 of that. Considering that the sleeve around that cup costs 50.05, the takeaway is that a small piece of cardboard is more valuable than the farmer's work. 22.
