If you’ve ever visited Portland, Oregon, then you know how serious we are about coffee. With so many roasters, brewers, and baristas in this town, it takes a lot to impress.
Enter the Ratio Coffee Brewer. Mark Hellweg, founder of Clive Coffee, came up with the concept after listening to his customers complain about low-quality plastic machines. So he developed a design-forward coffee maker that marries the delicious results of a fussy pour-over with the one-button ease of a machine.
The aesthetic is warmly modern; die cast nickel-plated aluminum contrasts with Oregon black walnut and borosilicate glass. Though the machine isn’t inexpensive (retailing at $480), it’s built to last a lifetime.
The first batch of Ratio brewers sold out earlier this year and the second series is on sale now.
