Even if you have money to burn, the lovely Ratio Eight's usability quirks and outlandishly expensive price make other coffeemakers from Bonavita and Technivorm much better buys.
Disappointingly harsh pots of coffee make the Bonavita BV1500TS hard to recommend over the Bunn Velocity Brew BT or Bonavita's flagship BV1900TS brewer.
Kitchenaid Siphon Coffee Brewer ( Black Onyx)
The KitchenAid Siphon Brewer runs automatically, uses electricity for extra convenience and brews distinctly flavorful coffee but is tricky to keep clean and operate.
Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me ( Black)
If you have a hankering for fancy cafe drinks at home, the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me is worth a look -- just don't expect anything close to real espresso flavor.
Remington iCoffee Opus Single-Serve Brewer
iCoffee's brewer does an acceptable job, but it doesn't live up to its performance claims, and that makes it difficult to recommend.
Mr. Coffee 10-Cup Smart Optimal Brew Coffeemaker Wemo Enabled
The Mr. Coffee Smart Optimal Brew makes sense for those who get a thrill from commanding their coffee maker by mobile app but not for people seeking strong java flavor.
Bonavita BV 1900TS
If whipping up amazingly delicious drip coffee for less is what you want, then the Bonavita BV1900TS is the best choice by far.
Breville YouBrew BDC600XL
Breville's YouBrew really tries hard to please with its sophisticated design and brewing options, but for much tastier drip get the Bunn Velocity Brew BT or Technivorm Moccamaster 741 KBT instead.

Cuisinart DGB-900BC Burr Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker
The Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker tries to merge two appliances into one but you're better off buying a grinder and quality brewer separately.
Bunn Velocity Brew BT
If brewing up 10 cups of tasty coffee swiftly is what you're after, then the Bunn Velocity Brew BT should be on your short list, but its no-frills looks won't impress seekers of high appliance style.
