We're entering a new wave of beautiful automatic coffee makers as more and more consumers despise clunky, plastic percolators. One on our wish list is The Ratio Eight. It's priced steeply at $450, but it's handcrafted with natural materials, so it practically doubles as artwork, too. It's essentially an automatic Chemex machine with a sleek, functional design made of aluminum, glass, walnut wood, and (our favorite part) a cork stopper to prevent steam from escaping. No fancy brewing skills are needed as the Ratio automatically timers each stage of the process and designates when the coffee is "blooming," "brewing," and "ready" with white lights.
