Barisieur Alarm Clock

If the first thing you think about when you wake up each morning is coffee, have we got the item for you: The Barisieur coffee maker alarm clock.

The alarm clock's sleek design combines glassware with a walnut timber tray and a base of either white or black. The piece even includes a drawer to keep coffee and tea along with an integrated lid and spoon and a refrigerated compartment for milk, activated by an infrared sensor. London-based designer Joshua Renouf created the gorgeous gizmo and it came to market after a popular Kickstarter campaign — that got the attention of Virgin Group founder Richard Branson — followed by fundraising on Indiegogo Demand. (Pre-orders approached $1,000,000 so clearly the demand for the product was there!)

Now, you can buy the museum-worthy alarm clock to keep on your own bedside table. At $445 on UrbanOutfitters.com it will certainly cost you a pretty penny, though.

But for those who truly cannot start the day without that cup of Joe, the Barisieur might just be worth its weight in coffee beans.
