In early October, commercial coffee industry leader Wilbur Curtis Co. announced the debut of its Genesis Bean to Cup Coffee Machine.
Curtis’ new brewer aims to deliver quality, consistency, and a wealth of other efficiency-oriented features in the made-to-order beverage market. The fully automated bean-to-cup brewing system creates fresh coffee on demand, powered by signature, innovative technology. The new brewer is the first purpose-built, automated bean-to-cup machine from Curtis designed exclusively around pressure-brewed coffee.
The Genesis uses a unique pressure-brewing process similar to that used to make espresso. Fresh, whole coffee beans are conveniently top-loaded, then ground by the machine. The ground coffee is then channeled into the brewing mechanism and lightly tamped. Under pressure, hot water evenly extracts flavor and oils — a consistent process for each cup. The pressure extraction produces a perfectly brewed, single-serve cup of coffee.
The machine’s key specifications include:
The Curtis Genesis, which can craft 150 drinks per day, grinds precisely the amount of coffee needed per cup, which will reduce excess coffee waste by up to 30%, according to the company. Compared with batch brewing, the Genesis is said to save operators up to 2,000 gallons of water per year.
