El Carmen Coffee Processing Plant

Ahuachapán

Coffee has been cultivated in this area for more than four generations. The processing plant is located just five minutes from Concepción de Ataco, in Ahuachapán, one of the municipalities on the Ruta de Las Flores. At the plant, visitors will appreciate the transformation of cherry coffee to green coffee, or fine export gold, which has allowed to please the most demanding international markets with its traditional Alpha brand. While visiting the plant enjoy the cool climate and a beautiful panoramic view, which offer an ideal environment to become familiar with the coffee culture. This place has been recommended by the Jet Set Destination Viewing publication as one of the most popular coffee plantations in El Salvador. There you can choose between two tours. The first is the traditional one, with a guided tour of the mill facilities where they explain the process of transformation of coffee and the other tour is more comprehensive where you will be received at La Casona, the old house of the farm owners, and taste a cup of gourmet coffee, prepared using the chorreador method, accompanied by traditional pastry. Then you can take a guided tour of the coffee process and learn the basic cupping principles. At the end of the tour, visitors receive a pound of gourmet coffee and savor a country like picnic lunch. On the farm you can ride a four-engine vehicle, zip-line, hike, ride a horse or climb the high ropes circuit.
