Ratio is Here

It’s been an exciting year here at Clive, and I’m so glad we’ve been able to connect over a shared appreciation for good coffee and quality tools!

Our entire reason for existence at Clive is to match people with the right setup for their lifestyle and budget. We pursue traditional espresso, quality that lasts, and beautiful design wherever we can find it.

In 2013, I announced a drip coffee maker that was designed and built here in Portland, Oregon. It was the result of selling coffee makers for 5 years and continually hearing from my customers that there just had to be a better coffee maker out there.

Little did I realize that it would take me until January 2016 to ship all of the orders for this machine. You may have heard of the supply chain and quality control issues we had to resolve. We are incredibly honored that about 90% of the people who preordered a unit held on, some for over 16 months.

We’ve now shipped over 1,400 units, and the feedback has been tremendously encouraging. We’ve received 27 reviews and continue to welcome the honest feedback of everyone who have supported us and waited patiently for their machine.

Many Clive customers have emailed to ask me to let them know when the Ratio Eight is in stock, and I’m pleased to say that we’re now ready.

Shop online, or give us a call, Ratio’s are shipping same day or next day. If you’re in the Portland area, stop by our showroom, pick out the right one for your kitchen and take it home for your first brews.

Here’s to great coffee in 2016!
