High-performance machine technology is what is needed to meet the high requirements in terms of coffee quality and quantity in the catering trade or high-frequency gastronomic concepts. With the Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin and the Curtis G4 GemX Gemini Twin, US manufacturer Wilbur Curtis presents two further professional coffee machines which offer elegant design, premium coffee quality and impressive brewing quantities. Compared to the single versions, the Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin and the Curtis G4 GemX Gemini Twin are equipped with two independent brewing heads which give them an output of up to 80 litres per hour – ideal for self-service restaurants, petrol stations, hospitals and nursing homes or bakeries in high-frequency locations. And the twin models can not only serve a large number of guests – they also allow you to offer those guests variety with two different types of coffee bean. The filter coffee is brewed directly in two thermo containers which keep it at temperature and can then be set up separate from the brewing unit wherever you want to serve the coffee. The Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin has a capacity of 3.8 litres per container, while each container of the Curtis G4 GemX Gemini Twin holds 5.7 litres. And thanks to FreshTrac and IntelliFresh technologies for monitoring the freshness and filling level of the coffee, the containers not only keep the prepared filter coffee at the perfect temperature for extended periods, but also guarantee premium quality.
Coffee quality and variety
The Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin and the Curtis G4 GemX Gemini Twin offer sophisticated technical features which guarantee premium coffee quality, variety and efficiency. A digital fourth-generation G4 CPU means intuitive operation of the machines and process reliability during preparation of the coffee and also allows operators to individualise their range of filter coffee with a variety of recipes. The settings for extraction time, brewing temperature and the quantity of ground coffee can be changed to suit the specific roasting blend and the desired taste profile, and further details can also be defined. In this way, operators can offer a variety of coffees from one machine. The preset One Touch Global Recipes facilitate the profile settings and ensure consistent quality, cup after cup.
Intelligent technology for consistently good taste
The filter coffee variations prepared with the machines can then be positioned as required in the room in the respective stainless steel containers. The vacuum-insulated containers of the Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin keep the coffee at the perfect serving temperature for up to four hours, and, thanks to FreshTrac technology, inform service personnel of the volume and quality of their content via an LED display. The satellite containers of the Curtis G4 GemX Gemini Twin are placed on a special thermo system. In addition to FreshTrac, the containers are also equipped with IntelliFresh technology – a special heating system which keeps the coffee in the satellite containers at the ideal temperature independent of the quantity. Via an integrated sensor, IntelliFresh measures the coffee temperature and triggers automatic fine adjustment of the heating function to prevent deterioration in the quality of the filter coffee caused by over- or underheating. In addition, the satellite containers of the Curtis G4 GemX Gemini allow simple scaling and decentralisation of the coffee supply: with the various thermo stations available, several satellite containers of a Curtis G4 GemX Gemini Twin filter coffee machine can be filled and placed next to each other – perfect for peak times at heavily frequented locations or in order to offer guests a choice of taste profiles. Both the Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin and the Curtis G4 GemX Gemini Twin have a constant water supply and are equipped with an attractively designed hot water tap for the preparation of tea, soups or other instant products.
