Heard of Pour-Over coffee? If not, it is a slow, manual brewing style that takes patience and care.
The folks at Ratio Eight developed an automatic pour-over style brewer that simulates a manual pouring style.
This brewer is gorgeous. I'd love to have this guy on my counter, only problem is the price tag. $480. That's a deal killer.

But I can't say one way or the other about the quality of the brew. These guys can though.
UNCRATE - What you end up with is an excellent pot of fresh coffee, with repeatable results, and zero fuss.
BLOOMBERG - It lacks some refinement around the edges, from the mess it makes to the practicality of a non-insulated carafe, choosing style over utility at almost every turn. I quickly forgot most of these problems once I was nursing a great cup of coffee that the Ratio Eight had produced, but I won’t be placing a preorder anytime soon.
So if you are in the market for a new brewer, have extra coin and are looking for a new brewing experience this gadget may be for you.
