I don’t know about you guys, but I threw my standard alarm clock away a long time ago. I use my iPhone like any self-respecting adult and wake up each and every morning to the signature “radar” sound. It used to be awesome waking up to that almost soft radar noise every morning. It’s not as harsh as, say, the classic alarm noise that is the default on the iPhone. But like any alarm noise after a certain period of time, waking up to it becomes almost unbearable. I’m sick of it. I dread that noise every morning.
Enter the Barisieur. There’s no denying that it’s an incredibly pretentious name for an alarm clock that brews coffee. But just look at this thing. You move up two tax brackets in anyone’s mind when they see that contraption sitting next to your bed.
You can wake up to the aroma of fresh tea or coffee from your bedside, and honestly? Aesthetically speaking, you can’t go wrong with it.
The Barisieur encourages a ritual before going to bed, so you can plug your charge your phone/ tablet and prepare for the next important day.
I love the idea of having a little routine before bed. Brush my teeth, fluff the pillows, pick a movie, and toss some freshly ground coffee (read: Folgers French Roast) into this little apparatus so I have a cup waiting for me in the morning.
The only real hang up with this thing is that when it hits stores it’s going to cost $420.00. For that kind of money, I could probably just buy better coffee than Folgers and brew it in my Mr. Coffee. But still. I might just splurge on one of these things.
You bring a girl home with this motherfucker next to your bed and you know she’s going to bring her A-game. She’ll transform before your eyes into that dragon in the sack that every man desires. I think it’s a small price to pay to cultivate an aesthetic..
