If your commercial or office kitchen features cabinets that overhang in a manner similar to that of most home kitchens, finding a high capacity coffee brewer can be a bit of a challenge. Most models feature multiple hotplates or brew directly into a very large airpot, making it difficult to snug ‘em up under your cupboards. That’s where the TLP from Curtis comes in — all the delicious coffee brewed at a rapid space at just a fraction of the height!
Watch as we go through its features and specs, talk about its programming functionality and then brew up a batch of coffee (with a little help from the Curtis GSG grinder, of course).
You know that we play with a lot of different types of coffee equipment here at SCG and the crew definitely has their faves! We asked for volunteers to share which gear they dig in different product categories. Watch as Brendan, Kaylie, Shiami, Sam, Gail, Bunny, Dori, Teri and Miranda talk to us about their favorite kettles, pour overs, immersion / press pots and drip coffee brewers.
When preparing coffee, we know that there are a few different variables we can tweak in order to impact the flavor in the cup. We can play with brew temperature, pre-infusion timing, grind consistency, coffee dosage and water ratio, and each element will produce a different flavor nuance.
So we decided to play around with that! In this video, we take three different Brazen Brewers and we change up the grind consistency, coffee dosage, brew temperature and pre-infusion time, then taste them to see how they compare. Watch as we learn more about how changing these elements impacts our coffee.
The flexibility and creativity that surrounds the AeroPress knows no bounds. Seriously: For as many AeroPress lovers there are out there in the world, there’s an equal amount of preferred preps.
So we put the question out to the class: What is your favorite AeroPress prep? And then we recreated these sometimes meticulously crafted brews, tasted them and discussed how they compared in the cup. Using Velton’s Brazil Condado Estate, we were able to experience several different dimensions of this luscious single origin coffee. So that was pretty tight.
In the world of commercial coffee beverage service, Curtis offers a variety of models in all shapes, sizes and formats. Old school carafe, thermal airports and even a gourmet single cup brewer are on offer, and in today’s blog, we’re going to cover two of them: the D1000GT Twin Airpot and the G4 Single Cup.
Watch Gail’s provide a feature overview, functionality tour and brew demonstration on each of these coffee makers.

Curtis G4 CGC Single Cup Brewer
If you’re looking for a versatile one-cup coffee maker, the Capresso Coffee a la Carte might fit the bill. It offers you the ability to brew a single cup of tea, single cup of coffee or a whole pot of coffee, with programmable water dosages for the single cup versions.
Watch as Gail walks us through their features and then demonstrates each of the brew options.
Like it’s double-team and single cup counterparts, this TP15S features Curtis’ sophisticated G4 programming. Through a touch-screen interface, you can set your own recipes for the different roasts you offer your customers, or easily upload the roaster’s recommendations via a USB thumb drive.
The TP15S can brew up to a gallon and a half of superb java in about 10 minutes, so it’s seriously only for fast paced businesses or those among us that have so many friends we might consider you a braggart. But we’ll still love you (and your awesome coffee!) anyway. So, please invite us to join you.
Watch Gail take us through the basics, then whip up a batch for the entire crew to enjoy!
A variation on their direct-to-airpot brewer, the D500, Curtis’ D60 gives you the tools you need to deliver coffee like Flo down at the greasy spoon! The only difference is that your coffee is going to taste much more amazing because you made it using Curtis’ excellent brew technology.
Watch Gail walk through the programming interface and functionality, then we make a pot of coffee, sit back and gossip with the best of them.
Here’s the story: Your cafe’s swingin’ into high gear and while you want to serve up delicious, fresh, hot drip coffee, you don’t have time to pour out each cup. So why not brew directly into an airpot, put it out on the counter and have your customers serve themselves? The D500GT by Curtis allows you to do just that.
Watch as Gail goes through the features, interface and programming of this easy-to-use commercial coffee brewer, then demonstrates making a batch directly into an airpot.
