Unfortunately, these days coffee makers made in the USA are hard to come by. It seems that all the major manufacturers had moved their production lines overseas and that nowadays everything is made in China.
Thankfully, there are still a handful of coffee makers that are made in the USA.

The Ratio Eight coffee maker is a true piece of art. This coffee maker confirms that the company advertising slogan, “Reinventing Coffee from the Ground up,” is not an exaggeration.

This company address’ the relationship between form and function from a hipster point of view; giving us powerful performance with beautiful design, not to mention Oregon-sourced beautiful walnut wood.
The reviews are a little weak on the performance of the machine compared to the high price tag.
But the company promises uncompromising quality. The stainless steel showerhead utilizes a Fibonacci Spiral pattern to ensure even water distribution over the grounds.
The precision machine died-cast aluminum body and borosilicate glass tank ranks the Ratio Eight is a masterpiece of industrial design in my books.
The designer of this American made beauty is, as mentioned previously, Mark Hellweg. His focus came from an awareness of the new coffee culture and a niche in the market place for a machine that met the need for quality and beauty.
Mark says, “We had to evaluate everything and try to be thoughtful and really narrow down what we’re trying to deliver to three things, One: the quality of components and materials. Two: beauty and design. And three: the way it brews coffee. It had to be true to all three. If you lose one of those, you haven’t achieved balance.”
It’s the simple things in life that matter. It looks as Bonavita took ‘simplicity’ to heart when they designed the BV1900TS Coffee Brewer.
