Many mass-produced coffee makers are bulky countertop eyesores. They’re full of cheap plastic parts and do little to improve the aesthetic of your kitchen. The Ratio Eight is the exact opposite. Each is hand assembled in Portland and features a beautiful mixture of glass and die cast aluminum. The carafe takes standard Chemex filters or can use the Kone stainless steel version and the unit itself sports a powerful 1400 watt heating element. Besides brewing up a delicious coffee, the Ratio Eight will look like a modern piece of art sitting next to your oven.
