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.

Amid mounting competition and often tenuous profit margins, foodservice operators of all stripes are constantly looking to reduce operating costs. These latest Curtis ENERGY STAR standouts give them great options for doing so, while delivering the rich features, innovative engineering and tremendous reliability that have made Curtis a leader in the coffee world for the last 75 years.

An iconic industry standard since its introduction in 1980, the Gemini® satellite twin brewing system delivers the quality of urn-brewed coffee with the speed of a bottle brewer. 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 Helps Operators Serve Highly Profitable Specialty Slushie Drinks with the New Chill-X™ Frozen Beverage Machine

Curtis Chill-X Frozen Beverage Machine

Specialty drinks—like frozen fruit beverages, gourmet tea slushies and icy hot chocolate—are an excellent way for quick-service restaurants (QSRs), gourmet coffee shops and other retailers to increase store traffic and profitability. But some frozen beverage machines can be inefficient, bulky and labor-intensive. What’s more, not all are easy enough for staff to operate, or attractive enough to feature in front-of-the-house areas.

Curtis has solved that problem with the introduction of the Chill-X Frozen Beverage Machine.

A design that “dispenses” with space issue and complication

The Chill-X is part of the expanding line of Curtis frozen beverage machines designed to help operators serve up the big, bold, tantalizing flavors that are guaranteed to draw people in. Sleek and versatile— with zero clearance side-to-side, Chill-X looks great, works hard, and slips easily into any counterspace in spite of its large three-gallon bowl capacity.

It also comes with features that make it easy to consistently dispense an ever-changing variety of drinks day after day, hour after hour. A self-refill function saves operators significant time and labor. Digital temperature controls expand offerings to include delicious dairy-based drinks. A standby mode keeps product fresh overnight and, a built-in defrost cycle eliminates downtime during the rush and saves energy when the dispenser isn’t needed.

Other smart features include:

  • Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel panels
  • Lighted cover with safety lock system
  • Patented ergonomic push-pull handles
  • Built-in timer
  • Built-in defrost cycle

Easy to use and easy to clean, the Curtis Chill-X Frozen Beverage Machine helps operators get profitable specialty drinks down cold.

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.

New, Super-Stylish Curtis ThermoProX™ Brewer Makes a Great “Fresh Impression”

ThermoProX

C-stores, hotels and restaurants know they need to keep a ready supply of hot, fresh and delicious coffee on hand to attract customers. But they also need to keep up appearances.

The new Curtis ThermoProX Brewing System addresses both those needs and more. It’s the latest in the line of innovative, style-forward products from one of the world’s leading manufacturers of coffee brewing equipment, the Wilbur Curtis Company.

Performance meets exceptional styling

The ThermoProX is engineered with all the advanced features of the renowned Curtis ThermoPro® brewing system. But it offers a new, sophisticated design and styling that adds immensely to the counter appeal of any operation. It has modernistic rounded corners, an elegant sloping top, slender side panels, plus a textured honeycomb front panel that will truly turn heads.

Brains behind the beauty

From a strictly functional standpoint, the ThermoProX is crafted so that operators can confidently brew and serve gourmet coffee at its peak freshness all day long.

Stainless-steel, vacuum-insulated servers keep coffee fresh, flavorful and at the perfect serving temperature without using external heat. With features like one-touch brewing, pre-set recipes and self-diagnostics, onboard Curtis G3 and G4 Technology make brewing Golden Cup coffee instantly simple, while keeping operators in control.

Server bases on the ThermoProX easily detach after brewing and reattach for remote coffee merchandising. This makes it easy to brew and serve multiple coffee flavor profiles at the same time. Servers are also interchangeable between brewers.

What’s more, with Thermal FreshTrac® (TFT) technology staff can monitor coffee freshness at a glance—from across the room. Its silent visual LEDs communicate coffee volume and freshness.

Available in single and twin brew head models, the new ThermoProX delivers exceptional styling, user-friendly operation and tremendous flexibility that every operator will appreciate.
