Two-thirds of American adults drink coffee every day. On average, they’re each drinking about three cups per day, which works out to nearly 400 million cups downed each and every day.

The Ratio Six Coffee Maker is a home brewing system funded by a Kickstarter campaign that wants to bring a world-class cup of joe with each and every pour.
Consistency and convenience without compromise are the Ratio Six rallying cry. Just add your water and grounds, then push the button. That’s it. The meticulously handmade unit kicks into action, simulating the pour-over technique of a skilled barista. Hot water is slowly dispersed over the bloom with sharp precision, offering more evenly extracted grounds and an excellent cup of coffee.
Brewing up to 40 ounces at a time, the Ratio Six looks as good as it brews, cutting a sleek stainless steel profile that helps it fit in on any countertop. The Ratio folks are also backing their quality machine with a 5-year warranty, so you know that it’s built to last.
The Ratio Six Coffee Maker is just now rolling out to Kickstarter buyers, but you can still get one now at $35 off the regular price, just $310.99. Boing Boing readers can save an additional 10% when using code RATIO10 at checkout.

Huawei is suspected to be an arm of the Chinese government, breaking into western markets (and maybe its networks) by selling impossibly cheap equipment. The UK only recently approved more Huawei […]
Creating a fantasy world for a video or role-playing game is tough enough. In addition to all the game framework and functionality that goes into a build of any size, creators invariably sweat over the most minute details of every weapon, outfit, or other distinctive objects in their game. Even if your game is set […]
We get it. You don’t have to go to the office anymore. That’s no excuse for letting your grooming go positively feral. We’re not saying you need to be GQ cover model-ready every Monday through Friday. But at least put in some effort to keep yourself relatively trimmed, clean, and on point. Even if you […]
With everybody cooped up inside right now, it’s no surprise that many houses are starting to get a little bit…well, funky. Yeah…they smell.
