Wilbur Curtis has developed a way to keep decanters ready to serve freshly brewed coffee. The FreshTrac™ digital freshness indicator, available only on Curtis Alpha™ GT brewers, utilizes a flashing, visual indicator that tracks the freshness of coffee right from the point of brewing. It alerts the user when coffee is no longer at its peak of freshness and a new brew is needed, according to the release. FreshTrac starts timing at the moment the brew cycle begins. Freshness settings, which can range from 10 to 120 minutes, are transmitted to the FreshTrac receiver that conveniently snaps on to any Curtis decanter handle. Once the desired freshness time has expired, the FreshTrac indicator will begin flashing red every five seconds until a new pot of coffee is brewed. Fully automatic and dishwasher safe, FreshTrac’s silent, visual alarm provides a simple, intuitive way to track coffee’s freshness.
