The Commission for the Promotion of Peru for Export and Tourism (PROMPERÚ) says the coffee industries of Peru and Germany have a good relationship. Many German roasters annually visit Peruvian cultivation areas on promotional platforms in Peru such as the International Coffee Fair (FICAFE), the ExpoAmazónica, the Coffee and Cacao Show, EXPO Café, and the Food Expo.
In Germany, Peruvian coffees participate in World of Coffee, where Peru was the Guest Country of Honor in its latest edition of June 2019.

This performance supports the positioning of the Coffees of Peru brand, launched in Peru in 2018, as part of the international ExpoAmazónica fair.
