In recent years, the popularity of slowly-crafted, by-the-cup coffee preparations like pour over and immersion brewing has steadily increased in cafes across the US. Some shops will employ dueling hot water kettles in order to tailor the water temperature to each and every brew, and if you’re offering a wide selection of coffees prepared in this manner, then that still may be a great way of doing it. However, if you find that you’re brewing these coffees at relatively similar temperatures or your demand dictates a more efficient approach to water delivery, the Curtis G3 hot water dispenser is an essential tool of the trade.
With a simple programming interface, temperature control and the ability to aerate your water prior to delivery to ensure it is highly oxygenated — and tastes great — the G3 is an updated version of their tried-and-true electric hot water dispenser. It has a much more fetching case design, allowing it to fit right in behind the counters of even the most hip and stylish cafes, but it’s still easy to use under high volume brewing conditions.
In this review video, Brandon guides us through the Curtis G3’s features and functionality, shows us how to program it and set temperature and then discusses what kind of applications it is best suited for. In addition to aforementioned manual coffee brewing methods, we think this would also be an exceptional tool in a tea house.
