The gadget world is full of clever combinations, with the camera phone being an extremely obvious example. But very rarely do two machines go together as gracefully or intuitively as the coffeemaker and the alarm clock, given the known aromatic properties of coffee in the field of waking you up in the morning. And so we have the Barisieur from Josh Renouf.
Unfortunately, the Barisieur appears to only be a concept piece for now, but what a concept piece it is. You fill it with water and coffee makings at night before you go to sleep (which has the added benefit of “signalling to the body and mind that it is time to unwind and relax“), and in the morning you have a fresh brewed cup of coffee through specially-timed induction heating.
It’s a pretty cool idea for an alarm clock, and maybe one day you’ll be able to purchase one. But for now you can check it out at the Josh Renouf Design site here.
