El Carmen is an extremely well-run specialty estate and is managed with scrupulous attention to detail. The estate's coffee is produced under approximately 60% shade cover, which is required for the coffee to ripen evenly. Prior to the rainy season, shade trees are then pruned to about 40% shade to allow the access of light necessary for new foliage growth. Unlike many farms in El Salvador, El Carmen's red and orange cherries are processed separately. The beans are then naturally fermented, washed with pure spring water, and sun-dried on clay patios. The coffee is stored in parchment in wooden silos to protect the freshness of each bean, and left to rest for a minimum of 60 days under controlled conditions to reach uniform humidity and colour. Finally, the beans are prepared and screened for optimum quality.
