For almost $600, the Ratio Eight coffee maker sports premium materials such as nickel, aluminum, glass and wood.
The Ratio Eight has a skin of ceramic nickel covering its aluminum body.
Protecting the water tank opening is a large, heavy metal lid.
Pour the water you'd like to brew with in the Ratio Eight's hand-blown glass water tank.
Ratio will bundle a custom-made aluminum Kone filter for an extra $60.
There's only one button to press to kick off the Ratio Eight's brewing process.
The Ratio Eight has the power to heat water to ideal brewing temperatures.
The first step in the Ratio Eight's brewing cycle is the bloom mode when the grounds are saturated with hot water.
Once the bloom is complete the Ratio Eight drips hot water at a fast pace during the full brew mode.
Thanks to the Ratio Eight's transparent hand-blown carafe you get to see all your lovely java come to life.
A white "ready" light switches on when your brew is done.
Since the contents of the fancy glass carafe cools quickly you'd better drink up right away.
I can vouch that the Ratio Eight consistently made excellently brewed coffee.
