ABOUT RATIO

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS

One button. Three phases.   From grind to cup.

Ratio is smarter than your average coffee maker. Beneath the exterior is precise brewing science, automated.  Ratio is equipped with a powerful heating element.

step 1 of the brewing process

BLOOM.

Hot water poured over fresh roasted coffee causes a bubbly interaction called a "bloom."  The control board of Ratio applies a bloom cycle that allows the bloom to settle down before delivering the rest of the hot water.  The result?  More evenly extracted grounds and a more amazing cup of coffee.

step 2 of the ratio process

BREW.

Sensors automatically determine the optimal brewing time based on the water level. Ratio keeps the water near 200°F  —the ideal coffee temperature.

sTEP 3: READY

READY.

While brewing, the Ratio shower-head uniformly pours over the grounds. When finished, the soft white LED lights will indicate that it’s time to enjoy your coffee.

RATIO IS SMARTER THAN YOUR AVERAGE COFFEE MAKER

Beneath the exterior is precise brewing science, automated.  Ratio is equipped with a powerful heating element. Where lesser machines struggle to maintain the optimum temperature - brewing either too hot or too cold - Ratio consistently delivers water at the ideal temperature of 200°F.  Ratio wanted to add precision to the brewing without being overly complex to use yet still brew great coffee.  So it doesn’t use a pump, or a PID, or a temp control device …just a one touch button that brews coffee at the right temperature and time.

Inspired by the precision of manual brewing with pourover kettles, Ratio uses a unique shower-head design to uniformly saturate the coffee grounds. This means a more complex-better cup of coffee for you — without  having to think or remember about how to do so.

WHO IS RATIO FOR?

People who really enjoy a great cup of coffee without complexity and love designed high quality products.

ratio eight reviews state it's one of the best coffee makers, period.

RATIO EIGHT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

  This is the best, easiest to make coffee I have had, period.
  Received this beautiful machine and not only is it a work of art, it makes the best coffee I have ever had! Worth the wait!
 I generally love french press coffee because of the full body, but like most people, I don’t love the residue found in a
     cup of french press. This coffee has an amazing depth of taste and body, but does not have any of the residue found
     in a french press. It’s an amazing flavor profile.
  This machine is a piece of art, it looks amazing sitting on the counter

A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER

Ratio is the result of pondering coffee makers for several years. After listening to many customers complain about flimsy plastic parts, complicated programming steps, and overall inelegance, I decided to draw together a team of talented designers, engineers, and creatives to build a new company that is devoted entirely to coffee machines of unmatched beauty and quality.
