GemX Narrow Coffee Brewer - Winner of the 2021 Kitchen Innovations Award


Curtis Space-Saving G4 GemX® Narrow IntelliFresh® Coffee Brewing System with FreshTrac®

MONTEBELLO, CALIF. – The recently launched Curtis G4 GemX® Narrow IntelliFresh® Coffee Brewer with FreshTrac® is designed to maximize counter space and double an operator’s foodservice coffee volume. It’s the latest creation from Curtis, part of the SEB PROFESSIONAL North American family of industry-leading coffee and tea solutions, and it’s also a winner of the Kitchen Innovations® 2021 Award presented by the National Restaurant Association.

“We are proud to have the GemX Narrow recognized as a forward thinking, innovative equipment line for foodservice,” said Emmanuel Couppey, vice president of marketing at SEB PROFESSIONAL North America. “The KI Awards program has earned a reputation for defining equipment that is smart, sophisticated and that solves operational concerns.”

Compact yet robust, the GemX Narrow expands beverage versatility while saving operators valuable counterspace. At just 10.5” wide, the unit’s two 1.5-gallon dispensers fit side by side, allowing operators to brew three gallons of their best seller or feature an additional specialty coffee variety in the same compact space. The rotating brew basket makes it easy to brew into either satellite without changing their position.

KI Award recipients were selected by an independent panel of judges comprised of industry leaders and food facility consultants, multi-unit executives and design experts. Judges look for innovative, new equipment that reflects the trends and topics most important to foodservice operators today, delivering advancements in speed, efficiency, space-savings and more.

Curtis combines almost 80 years of passion for coffee with technology, innovation and a commitment to do the right thing for customers and the environment. Learn more about the Curtis GemX Narrow IntelliFresh™ Brewer at
