This alarm clock wakes you up with a freshly-brewed cup of coffee

Your worst enemy is now your own personal barista. UK-based industrial designer Josh Renouf has invented the Barisieur, an alarm clock that instead of waking you with annoying bells and beeps, eases you into your day with the relaxing aroma of fresh coffee.

Barisieur looks like your average alarm clock, with what looks like a chemistry set on top. Inside a glass beaker are stainless steel balls that boil water through induction heating. The hot water is then pushed out through a tube, onto the ground coffee, before finally dripping into a cup. There’s also a vial that contains the milk, and a cabinet to store sugar and coffee.

In addition to waking up to fresh coffee right beside you, Renouf also says preparing the ingredients the night before helps you sleep better.

“It encourages a ritual before going to sleep, signalling to the body and mind that it’s time to unwind and relax.”

The alarm clock is only a concept for now, but Renouf says he is looking for a way to commercialise the Barisieur.

The estimated retail price for your very own alarm clock-turned-bedside-barista is $AU450.
