A few weeks ago, Cliff & Pebble was proud to announce the addition of the Ratio Eight Coffee Machine. The team at Ratio has designed and produced a machine worthy of not only performance awards but design as well. Now, we’d like to take the time to go over all the pros and cons of the machines in our Ratio Eight Coffee Machine review!
Your typical drip coffee machine is dull, plastic and, well, a downright eye sore. Perusing coffee makers on Amazon proves this. I have to believe Ratio had this in mind when drawing up the plans for the Ratio Eight Coffee Maker. The perfected product is a machine that not only produces a better, smarter cup of coffee but also looks amazing in any kitchen. Using hand blown glass, metal, ceramic and wood from Oregon, the Ratio Eight coffee machine is quite possibly the most visually stunning coffee maker on the market today.
Ratio offers two models of coffee makers – and both will cost you. The Ratio Eight Edition will run you $580. A solid chunk of change for a coffee maker. So, now you have to make a decision as to whether or not it’s worth it (which is how you probably found yourself reading this article entitled “Ratio Eight Coffee Maker Review”). For some, the visual component will be enough to splurge but for most, the coffee it produces will be the deciding factor.

For most, this will be the determining factor. Is the coffee the Ratio Eight Coffee Maker produces that much better than it’s much, much cheaper drip brewing competitors?
Our answer? Yes – the coffee is better. But that’s not the question. Is it worth three times the price of its competitors? Lets dig in.
Ratio uses a drip-brewing method. With only the touch of a single button, the machine drips hot water into its filter. It does this very slowly as to make sure all the coffee grounds become saturated.
Next, the Ratio Eight goes into brew mode. Using a shower-head method, the machine begins to shower coffee grounds with hot water until brewing is complete.
After all the design, technology and thought that went into the Ratio Eight I can happily say that the end product is nothing short of spectacular. As far as drip coffee machines go, the Eight puts itself at the top when it comes to performance and in a class of its own appearance-wise. If you can get past the price tag, the Ratio Eight will not disappoint. If not, take a look at other cheaper drip coffee options. Most still make comparable coffee but none will come close to the design. If the coffee is all your care about, opt for a cheaper machine. If you want something more, something you can look at and be proud of, opt for a Ratio Eight Coffee Maker.
