Ratio Thermal Carafe

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2015-12-10

A 40 ounce thermal carafe with solid stainless steel top, metallic ceramic finish, and beautiful design. Works with the Ratio Eight. The Ratio Thermal Carafe is our second product. Combining high-design with the best materials available on the market, the Ratio Thermal Carafe is designed to enhance those moments of settling in to enjoy coffee or tea. Ratio’s Thermal Carafe is designed for use with the Ratio Eight Coffee Machine, but also functions as a stand alone thermal serving device for coffee or tea, and as a manual pour over vessel with a matching ceramic cone. It holds 40 ounces, or 1.25 liters.

@Robert Schuppe @David Altman Thanks very much for the thoughtful comments! We are keen to hear what you are experiencing, and we'll be taking notes for future product designs. We're working up a blog post on how to care for the carafe and some pouring tips as well. If you ever need to get a hold of us quickly, we're at support@ratiocoffee.com.
Thank you again!

Really liking my carafe also. Very nice touch to include the coffee, which I am thoroughly enjoying. Also really like the ceramic funnel. It all is a pleasure to use.
One bit of feedback, and I'm curious if others are also experiencing that, with coffee in the carafe, the lid handle gets warm, indicating heat transfer from the hot coffee. As part of this, the heat-retention is okay, but not great (not a match to other carafes and thermal bottles I have). Not a big deal though... My wife and I will be wrapped up with a batch of coffee fairly quickly - and, I'm one of those guys who actually prefers (good) coffee as it cools.
As far as the one comment about not notching the lid on one side, so that it can only be poured through on one side (am I understanding that correctly?), I don't see why this is an issue - unless you're also dealing with my issue: coffee's heat being transferred to the handle and carafe-top... Maybe having just one side of the lid notched for pouring will reduce that transfer. BUT, very clever idea with the lid. I like it!

Love the carafe - look, heft and heat retention is excellent! Was also curious on recommendations for pouring strategies, as I can seem to pour without dripping down the side.

@Lex Johnson @Trevin C. Good feedback! We will definitely be looking at an improved heat lid. Lex, we've had similar ideas.

Review from Kickstarter
I Agee that it's well-made and "hefty" but haven't experienced your dripping problem. It's beautiful, but I would like to see the pouring groove on one side of the lid removed so we can rotate the "ungrooved" side of the lid to the spout side of the carafe to retain heat longer for storage.

Review from Kickstarter
Love the design and heft. What I hate? Seems impossible to pour coffee into a mug without it dripping down the sides of the carafe. To avoid this I have to pour really fast and tip it back up. Anyone else experiencing this?

@Ryan Christo Oh no! We will handle this for you ASAP.

Mine was shipped to the wrong address and is in a state of limbo with UPS. How did this happen and what do I do? I have confirmation from the survey response that my address was correct, but it shipped to a different address anyway.

Love ours (Stainless brushed)! Using it every morning. Keeps a pour-over brewed pot at proper temp for hours. Love it. Did I say WE LOVE IT?!

@Diane R Thank you for the kind feedback! It's great to hear that you like it so far, and we'd love to hear how that temp test goes!

Review from Kickstarter
I'm in California and I received my carafe a few days ago. What a beauty! quite heavy compared to other carafes. I'll be doing some experiments to see if my coffee stays hotter when I transfer from my Moccamaster carafe, into the Ratio Carafe, or by brewing directly into the Ratio Carafe, which is quite a bit shorter,. The packaging and everything included was very classy. When I opened the package, I said "Wow! this is nice". Thank you!

Hey guys. Since you are in production can you post a few pictures for us to look at. It's been a long gestation period, i think we are ready to see our babies!

@David Mayfield Thanks for the note! We have the (fingers crossed) final sample arriving to us expected Oct 5-6, and if we approve it then we're going straight into production with an expected 60 day turnaround. Expect an update on the samples as soon as we've received and inspected. We'll post photos too. If you have any other questions, I'm always at mark@ratiocoffee.com and will reply promptly. Thank you!

Keep up the good work. I'm glad you're sticking with this and making the best product possible. I remember stopping by your shop late last year and holding prototypes. The heft and quality were obvious then, and it's great to hear they are only getting better.

Yes I would like a refund. I don't believe in this project at this stage. Thanks.

Hi William,
I apologize if that came off as passive-aggressive; that was not my intent. We are able and willing to refund anyone who would like to purchase other carafes so just let us know if you'd like to do that.

No time for an update. But plenty of time for passive-aggressive snark?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi William,
Why don't I just refund your money so you can buy 3 or 4 of the other ones?
We're going to post a new update as soon as there's news.
Please advise and we'll refund immediately.

6 weeks since May 4 "Update." Tick tock. You're better than this. Concise honesty is better than expecting us to believe you are so busy tending to business that you cannot tend to your loyal customers. Why do people buy cheaper, more disposable versions?
Because they can get them and if they don't work or break, they can get them quickly replaced, refunded, or, can afford to buy 3 or 4 for the price of the 'quality' product that is, to the waiting and uninformed customer, as good as dead air. You really are better than this. Right?

Thanks Mark! Great to hear things are progressing. Hope the UK trip was a good one.

Review from Kickstarter
Sorry for the late reply everyone - I was in London debuting the Ratio Eight to the UK market. We are expecting a final sample of the carafe with the new laser welded joint lines this week, and after that we head into production. I will post an update as soon as we receive this sample.
Any questions, please email me directly at mark@ratiocoffee.com for the fastest response. Thank you!

@ratio I'd also be interested in local pickup. Also, maybe a finish upgrade if possible. Thanks, and I'm looking forward to receiving it!

GREAT to see you "did it"! Congratulations, and I hope the development & fabrication go well. Looking forward to a stylish looking carafe sitting on my breakfast table... filled with delicious - hot! - coffee.

@Chris Messina Thank you!
@Jeffrey Duffield We will send a survey to get the Dark Cobalt in your hands! We'll look into a local pickup at Clive and let you know - thanks for the suggestion!

I increases my pledge and would like the Dark Cobalt carafe. Is there anything I need to do to make the selection. Thank you and good luck. I also could pick up at Clive coffee would be a bonus as I have never met them.

@Dustin Gibbs - Yes, Champagne does match the original machine!
Dustin Gibbs
Review from Kickstarter
Quick question, "champagne nickel" matches the original ratio machine? From the pictures posted it looked like it was the "bright silver". Could you please clarify? I'd really like for the carafe to match the coffee maker. Thank you! Good luck with the campaign.
Ratio
Review from Kickstarter
@Kraig It sure does!
@Kodi
Thanks for the note! Here's a recent temp test that was done without pre-heating the carafe, so you could boost the initial temperature if you did this.
initial temperature 183.2
in 10 minutes 177.8
in 30 minutes 174.2
in 1 hour 168.8
in 2 hours 149.36
in 3 hours 145.76
in 4 hours 140 @Lukas It's $79 for int'l shipping not $170, hope that clarifies!

I would like to know about the thermal retention characteristics?
How long will it retain the brewing temp?
