No more burnt coffee! The Curtis D500GT DV Single Airpot Commercial Coffee Brewer brews prevents scorch and waste. Brewing into the thermal airpot keeps the coffee at an ideal temperature without having to use an additional heat source that can change the coffee flavor profile for the worse. This highly programmable unit also provides flexibility for whole and half batches.
Features & Functionality of the Curtis D500GT
Choose: The 120V or the dual volt 120/220V options
Digital Control: Brew premium gourmet coffee with the push of a button
Brewing Modes: Pre-infusion or pulse brew enhances coffee extraction
Lock out: Prevents brewing a batch prior to achieving correct water temps
Easy Set-Up: Factory settings deliver ideal results out of the box
Display: Large well lit display communicates functions at a glance
Energy saver: Automatically reduces energy consumption when brewer is idle.
The energy savings mode states that in the "ON" position, the unit will turn off 4 hours after the last brew. Does using the hot water spout count as a "brew"?
Generally the coffee at our office is brewed once in the morning and lasts the whole day. Employees still use the hot water spout throughout the day. If the energy saving feature is enabled, I don't want the unit to turn off during the middle of the day when people will still use the spout
Best Answer:Yes any water movement counts, so if you are using the spout on your Curtis Airpot you should be fine. If you'd rather, though, you can set it to stabilize at 140 and not just turn off, so really the only time it would go into energy saving mode is overnight. Hope this helps!
Now would you be able to have 2 different temperatures? One for brewing the coffee and a different temperature for the dispenser? I was thinking of using this for the dual purpose of brewing a large batch of coffee while also using it as the main source for hot water for a pour over. Could you use the dispenser at the same time it's brewing? or would you have to wait till it was done? Thank you!
Is the hot water heated on demand, or are there 2 reservoirs for the hot water so that when water is used it isn't cooled down by the water that comes in to replace it?
ie. If the 'hot' water is emptied, I am guessing that it is first boiled in the second reservoir before being mixed in with the available hot water ? ... or is there some other way to ensure that the dispensed hot water is fully hot ?
Best Answer:It have on demand hot water. I assume the tank is being constantly heated. We have a high volume office any many people use the hot water dispenser for tea. It works very well and is always hot.
Please help me with a question about the voltage on this unit. I understand the P=IE formula, Power (watts) equals current times voltage.In my experience, if an appliance is operated at 220 volts, it draws less current than the same appliance operating at 120 volts, which results in similar power usage. Your specifications show 1700 watts/3300 watts. Is this a low-power, high-power setting? Or is it the watts expected at each voltage? For a mobile coffee cart, power usage is a very important question.
Hello, I'm looking for a brewer to use in the Philippines, which uses 220v 60Hz. Would the dual voltage work at that voltage and hertz? Also there is a problem with brownouts and voltage regulation, do you have any idea how susceptible this machine is to voltage irregularities? I was looking at the Brazen Plus and Technivorm Moccamaster, but the addition of a transformer put it near the cost of the Curtis. Could you tell me if the taste is comparable to those models? Finally, if I buy a coffee maker, could you recommend quality assurance tests that I could run to make sure everything is working properly before shipping overseas?
Best Answer:I spoke with my commercial team and they do not recommend buying a unit in the US to use in the Philippines. While it would technically work, the Curtis D500GT we offer is designed for US power. You would be far better buying a unit in the Philippines, as the units sold there will be designed for 220v 60 hz.
