I hate waking up in the morning as if I had a separation anxiety with my warm, comfy bed. The only thing that makes me get up is the idea of sipping a freshly brewed cup of coffee. I think Joshua Renouf, a product designer, understands this as well, he has come up with Barisieur, an alarm clock and coffee brewer in one. It’s a unique concept alarm that wakes you up by servicing you a freshly brewed coffee that you can drink the minute you wake up, you don’t even have to get out of bed.
The alarm alerts you to wake up with subtle movement of stainless steel ball bearings that boil water through induction heating. The boiled water then used to make your morning coffee. Together, the sound of steel ball bearings and the smell of freshly brewed coffee signal your body and mind that it is time to wake up, it’s a gentler way to start your day instead of using loud, annoying alarm clock.

To make Barisieur work, you need to prepare ground coffee and sugar in the drawer compartment at night, there’s a tube that you can use to keep some milk, just in case you like your coffee with milk. When the morning comes, and you hear the sound of those steel ball bearings, place the coffee ground on the filter and let this tool do the work.
