Because some of us can’t even get out of bed without caffeine.

Waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee is one of life’s singular pleasures. Too bad it comes with a downside: Someone actually has to get out of bed to brew it. Enter the most amazing thing to happen to every not-a-morning-person worldwide, the alarm clock that brews your coffee.
Designed by Joshua Renouf, the Barisieur is every coffee drinker’s dream come true because it’ll boil the water, pour it over your grinds, keep your cream or milk cool, and corral your sugar. Though it’s currently still in development for mass retail, the alarm clock is available for preorder via a waitlist on Renouf’s site. But this kind of convenience is going to set you back quite a bit—about $300 to $380.
You do have to set everything up the night before—scoop the grounds, fill it up with water, and portion your milk. But Renouf hopes this will become a ritual for users, “a signal to the body and mind that it is time to unwind and relax.” You know, instead of staying glued to your iPhone until you pass out. Though he has thought of that as well and added a USB outlet to charge your device.
