id="cnetReview" section="rvwBody" data-component="indepthReview"> Most drip coffeemakers look downright dull, tour bắc kinh thượng hải often offering all the aesthetic impact of a plastic box. Not so with the stunning Ratio Eight. This exorbitantly priced kitchen brewer -- it's $580, which converts to approximately £372 or AU$800 -- is built by startup Ratio, and liberally incorporates luxury materials into its impressive design. That includes glass, metal, ceramic, tour bắc kinh thượng hải and even wood. Frankly, the Eight is the most beautiful automatic coffee machine I've ever laid hands upon and tour bắc kinh thượng hải it makes outstandingly delicious java, too.

Unless you have a large stash of cash to burn or must own a rare device that's more like a concept car than a true consumer product, skip the Ratio Eight in favor of proven deluxe coffee machines. You'll be better served by the $299 Technivorm Moccamaster KBT-741 and $190 Bonavita BV1900TS , both less extravagant yet still superb drip-brewing options.  For bắc kinh thượng hải more options take a look at other high-end coffee makers we've reviewed.
