Hate Mornings? Then This Coffee-Brewing Alarm Clock Might Be For You
There’s nothing crueller then being woken by an alarm clock that just won’t quit right – but what if your alarm clock could wake you up with the delicious aroma of freshly brewed coffee?
It’s the perfect consolation prize for anyone who’s not a morning person, and that’s what you get with the Barisieur. This genius contraption boils water and mixes it with ground coffee (or tea leaves) to create a nice steaming cup of fresh coffee just as it wakes you up. It also has a handy glass vessel for milk or cream, and a special drawer for storing sugar and ground coffee.
The Barisieur is the brainchild of Josh Renouf. He wanted to create an alarm clock that’s not just practical but also stylish enough that anyone would happily put it on their bedside table. It’s tastefully made from walnut wood and stainless-steel with glass vessels for holding water, your brewed drink, and milk.
The water is safely boiled by an induction hob that heats up the stainless steel base and the produced steam is then funnelled into a stainless steel filter that holds the coffee grounds, which then brews fresh coffee right into a cup.
You still have to set up the device in the night, but that’s a very small price to pay for the convenience of skipping your brewing routine in the morning. All you have to do is add water and scoop in some coffee grounds, and that’s it!
If you’re one of those people who likes to hit the snooze button for ten more precious minutes sleep, don’t worry! You can set the Barisieur to begin brewing a few minutes after the first alarm. You can also set it to begin brewing a few minutes before the alarm if you prefer to consume your coffee as soon as the alarm goes off.
So where can you buy one? Well, you unfortunately can’t just yet. The Barisieur is still in development for mass production. Renouf ran an extremely successful Indiegogo campaign that raised over $530,000, but backers have to wait until September next year to receive their alarm. You can still back the campaign on Indiegogo if you want one, but be warned, the Barisieur isn’t cheap!
