The Wilbur Curtis Company Adds Four Popular Product Lines to Its ENERGY STAR-Certified Suite of Commercial Coffee Brewers

The Wilbur Curtis Company is proud to announce that four of its most popular commercial coffee brewing systems have earned coveted ENERGY STAR certification, giving foodservice customers new options for reducing costs while driving traffic and profit with delicious, always-fresh gourmet coffee.

The four new energy-smart products are the Curtis GemX™ and Gemini® IntelliFresh® coffee brewers, along with the ThermoPro and ThermoProX thermal coffee brewing systems.

Curtis IntelliFresh™ technology locks in and remembers freshness settings throughout the dispensing cycle—even when the satellites are placed on remote serving stands. It’s style-forward, over-achieving cousin, the Gem X™, combines “brains” and brilliant design elements to power a superior coffee program, and was a 2018 CSP Retailer Choice Best New Product Finalist.

Offering unsurpassed thermal efficiency, Curtis’s ThermoPro line quickly brews delicious gourmet coffee into high-tech, vacuum-insulated, stainless steel servers, keeping coffee fresh and at the perfect serving temperature with no need for additional heat. ENERGY STAR products like these fresh Curtis offerings save energy without sacrificing performance, helping operators control their energy bills, help protect the environment, and attract customers by burnishing their “green credentials” as well.

Curtis Nitro Infuser™ Helps Operators Add a “Cool Factor” to Beverages

Curtis Nitro Infuser

Cold brew coffee, tea, milk or juice on the menu are nothing new. But when you infuse nitrogen they become very different, highly desirable drinks that are sure to grab customers’ attention.

Catering to one of the hottest trends in cold coffee, Curtis has introduced its new Nitro Infuser to help operators grab a piece of the nitro craze. This simple yet highly-versatile component makes it easy for convenience stores, specialty coffee operations and restaurants add a creamy, stout-like effect to a wide variety of drink items and increase beverage sales right along with them.

The Curtis Nitro Infuser produces a longer lasting drink that seems thicker, creamier and sweeter without adding additional calories. Although nitro cold brew coffee is the most popular example, inventive operators are finding many other applications for nitrogenation, including teas, juices, and beer as well.

Infused with smart, simple Curtis engineering

Epitomizing Curtis smart engineering, the Curtis Nitro Infuser is compact, easy to install, and features an exclusive patented design. It has no power requirements, no delicate electronics and no uncontrollable ball valves. Plus, its stainless steel construction and simple design makes cleaning a breeze. The three channel unit provides support for three dispensing taps. Individual precision controls enable operators to offer different nitro-infused drinks at once, dial in just the right amount of infusion, and serve up beverages with better cascading—up to two minutes—for a beautiful presentation and incredible taste.

What’s more, setting up the Curtis Nitro Infuser couldn’t be easier. Operators just need bottled nitrogen and a tap system. It fits all kegerators. And no additional regulators or pumps are required.
