We got a Curtis G4 CGC for our office and does at least 150 cups per day without any problems. One thing that has been a problem for the 12 and 16oz cups is there is a standing pool of water at the end of the cycle still in the brew cone. Nothing comes out of the spout until around 30 seconds later which can be frustrating. Is this common with these machines?
Best Answer:Unfortunately that is a common problem with the Curtis G4. There is a secondary drip that happens as the water settles through. Ideally after you brew you dump the grounds and the drip doesn't happen. I have also just added 30 seconds to the counter in places where people walk away from the brewer, therefore allowing that drip to end up in the cup as opposed to the drip tray. Hope this helps!
Since the brewer brews fresh ground beans on demand, which grinder would you recommend to pair with the brewer. I saw one in the video with a little scoop. Is there a single server commercial grinder that you would recommend?

Best Answer:It is best to grind your beans right before brewing, and so, yes, we do recommend a grinder to pair with this Curtis G4 CGC. The scoop in the video comes with the brewer, and so I would suggest checking out the Baratza Forte BG and the Curtis GSG Bulk Commercial Grinder. I have included a few links below:
Best Answer:Unfortunately no, there is not an option to purchase metal baskets for use with this Curtis G4 brewer. The plastic on the brew baskets is BPA free, but if you'd prefer to use something else, you can also use this brewer to brew into a pour over like a Chemex or a Hario V60 Dripper.
Is the Curtis G4 CGC unit switch selectable for either 110v or 220v at installation / if moved to a new location with the other voltage? Is the unit designed to be turned off overnight or always left on? For a 110v installation, approximately what is the warm up time from a cold start? Do both sides operate simultaneously in the 110v configuration, and if so, what is the approximate limit for 8 oz cups per hour? Can the internal tank be user drained for moving or storage? Is descaling a user operation or must it be done by a service tech onsite or in a service center? Do you service this machine either onsite or in your service center? Thanks

Best Answer:The Curtis G4 single cup is not convertible for voltage. It comes standard with a 110v cord connected. If you want to run 220v you would need to just install a 220v cord on it. This is easy to do, but not just the flip of a switch. The unit is a commercial machine so it is designed to be left on 24 hours a day. It does have an energy saving mode if idle for 4 hours. On 110v it takes about 30 minutes to heat up which is why it should be on all the time. Both sides do operate on 110v configuration, so truthfully they can almost be ran back to back on 110v. If you ran both sides at the same time after the brew there is probably a 2 minute delay before you can brew again. You can drain it, but it is not easy, and you would need to disconnect a water line. Yes we will service it at Seattle Coffee Gear. There is really not a need to descale these machines as the boiler is very large.

Do you have a model G4 capable of handling approx. 150 cups of coffee per day?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2013
Best Answer:Yes, the Curtis G4 CGC is capable of producing 150 cups of coffee a day, however it would work best if it were using 220v for this. If you have further questions about our commercial products and what would work best in your cafe, please give us a call and we'd be happy to help! 866-372-4734
Best Answer:I spoke with my commercial sales representative regarding that Curtis G4 CGC Single Cup Brewer, and he confirmed that there is only one model of the G4 machine and they all come with the USB port on them. Hope this helps!
