Until we started the Cafe forum I had no idea how many different ways there were to make coffee. Barry sent me a PM yesterday that included a link to a very cool automatic coffee maker.

The Ratio Coffee Machine

I feel my AD kicking in but must resist. Biggrin

Honestly, Phil, the only thing that keeps my coffee ADs in check is that I still go out for coffee way more than I have it at home. So far, my Zassenhaus grinders (and a huge thank you to Johnny for my first one), AeroPress, and programmable kettle are keeping me very happy. (The operative words in that last sentence are, "So far,..." Undecided )

Interesting video above, that thing sounded suspiciously loud though...

I wonder if that Ratio machine is all plastic inside?

My ROK arrived today. I will have to play around with it when I get back from the shop. Here is a quick iphone picture. I have not had a chance to look at the manual yet.
