Can I return it if I don’t like it?

What is your warranty policy?
We have exceptionally generous (and long) warranty periods. Read more at ratiocoffee.com/warranty
Is there a hot plate?
No. Adding heat to brewed coffee ruins the flavor within minutes. The Ratio glass carafe is thick, tempered borosilicate glass, and with the lid in place, it keeps the coffee hot for about 15 minutes.
Will you have a thermal carafe?
Yes. We are in the final production stages of our Thermal Carafe that will retain heat for up to 4 hours. The Eight can be used with the glass or thermal carafe interchangeably. Pricing and availability will be announced soon.
Are there any plastic parts?
FDA-grade silicone and a single BPA-free plastic component are used internally. The plastic we have incorporated into the Ratio Eight is medical grade quality. Made of polysulfone, this food-grade quality plastic is FDA certified and an NSF compliant material.
Can I run the glass carafe through the dishwasher?
We do not recommend putting the Ratio glass carafe in the dishwasher. The cork base can break down and start to chip or peel away from the hot water and detergent. The Ratio carafe is made of tempered borosilicate glass, similar to laboratory glass. After each brew, we recommend rinsing the carafe in warm tap water, using a drop of dish soap if you’d like. You may use the Ratio Machine Wash as frequently as you’d like to remove mineral buildup and coffee stains.
Will you ship overseas and do you have a 220-volt version?
Yes. Ask us about our International partners!
Can I use a Chemex carafe?
No, our Ratio carafes have a magnet that tells the machine it is safe to begin brewing, the Chemex carafe does not have this feature.
What filters do I use?
Where do you manufacture the Ratio Eight?
We design and build the Ratio Eight here in Portland, Oregon out of custom parts made for us in Taiwan and China. We regularly visit each of our factories in person to ensure an exceptional level of quality in every aspect of the operation.
