If there was one beverage that would be considered most important to our functioning, apart from water, it would be coffee. Whether it’s an indulgence or part of daily routine for you, drinking coffee can be like taking a mini vacation on a hectic day. If coffee has become such an important part of our lives, why not elevate its brewing process with something beautiful?
Seems like that’s exactly what Portland, OR based Ratio had in mind when designing the Ratio Eight. This gorgeous coffee maker got its design inspiration from mid-century furniture, classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gulling, motorcycles, and more, resulting in a stunning piece of kitchen art that forces you to reevaluate all of your other appliances and even your kitchen design. More than just a pretty face, the Ratio Eight simplifies the coffee making process into three easy to understand steps (bloom, brew, and ready) that can be controlled with just one button.
For too long have we accepted our kitchen appliances to be nothing more than just appliances, but Ratio challenges that status quo by injecting a much needed sense of beauty into something that we interact with every day.
