Ratio Six Coffee Maker

Coffee is a much needed fuel in the mornings here at Coolector HQ and the easier it is to make, the better in our opinion. It certainly doesn’t hurt when the machine for making it looks great too and that’s why we’ve fallen pretty hard for the Ration Six Coffee Maker around these here parts. This fantastic bit of kit for caffeine aficionados means world-class coffee is more accessible than ever. It offers the one-button convenience of its bigger sibling with a leaner form and lighter price.

The Ratio Six Coffee Maker has a price tag of $345 which, when you consider its coffee making prowess, will be a small price to pay and it lets you simplify your coffee routine to the mere touch of a button. The Ratio Six’s Bloom, Brew, and Ready phases run in sequence, delivering a perfect (and effortlessly simple) cup of coffee each and every time you need that caffeine fix.

Coffee Lovers Rejoice

Offering a deliciously simulated pour-over, the Ratio Six Coffee Maker simulates the skilled pour-over process of a barista, precisely metering water flow through both the bloom and brew phases. This delivers all of the unbeatable taste but, crucially, with none of the effort. This clever bit of coffee kit uses the same die-cast aluminium heating element as the Ratio Eight coffee machine so water flows evenly through the stainless steel shower head and over the grounds at the ideal extraction temperature.

Boasting a design which is intuitive and easy to use and also future proofed for further innovations, it’s easy to see why the Ratio Six Coffee Maker ($349) is positively flying off the shelves. It has been designed for longevity with precision formed stainless steel, borosilicate glass, and high end BPA-free copolymers. Every element of the design is built to last and covered by a 5-year warranty so you know that it offers an unparalleled sense of quality from first brew to last.

The overriding thought process for Ratio is that everyone should be able to enjoy world-class coffee without the fuss. Which is why they make coffee machines for flavour, precision, simplicity, and beauty—no more and no less. The Ratio Six provides a performance comparable to its older sibling at a leaner cost, with a more streamlined profile, and lighter weight. All despite having the same brewing capacity (1.25 litre / 40 ounces) and powerful 1400 W heating element.

Contemporary Quality

There are coffee machines that make fantastic coffee, and there are coffee machines that look great. Ratio Six is the best of both worlds and combines form and function. It is designed in Portland, Oregon, and every Ratio machine is meticulously assembled by hand. While common appliances often have a built-in obsolescence and 1-3 year life span, every Ratio is built to last the long haul.

One of the biggest problems with most current home coffee makers is the abundant use of low-quality materials. Ratio chose heavy duty precision stamped stainless steel for the body of the Six Coffee Maker, and a beautiful cast stainless lid for the water tank, which really sets it apart from the competition and makes it the ideal candidate to be your next kitchen coffee ally.
