The Barisieur: Waking You Up With A Coffee
Put your hand up if you need a caffeine kickstart in the morning to get your shit together. Well, we have some great news for you: Joshua Renouf, the brilliant British Designer, has created a coffee lover’s fantasy with the Barisieur, the alarm clock and coffee brewer:
The cleverly designed Barisieur allows you to ease into your day with the smell of freshly brewed coffee tickling your nasal buds upon waking. It works using pure science: Induction heat is produced through the subtle movement of the stainless steel ball bearings that bring the water to a boil. The steam pressure produced by the boiling will then force the water through the tube and into the filter. As the coffee diffuses, it exits at the bottom, into your cup, and voila! your coffee is ready.
There’s even a little storage slot for a vile of milk and a mini drawer for sugar and extra grounds.
Who wouldn’t want to wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee? All you have to do is add the water the night before which according to Renouf, it encourages a ritual of going to sleep by signaling to the body and mind that it is time to unwind and relax. The philosophy – living slow even when times are fast.
We first saw this at Design Junction last year and have eagerly been anticipating the release… At the moment, the Barisieur is in the process of development but it should be available soon for £200-250. To keep updated or find out more about Joshua Renouf’s creations, visit his website.
