This post may be early, but if you had the Barisieur Coffee Alarm clock, at least you would be refreshed and relaxed while you’re reading it. Unfortunately, this Kickstarter is still only about half way to it’s goal, and even then, you’d have to wait until 2017 before you could take delivery of it. Regardless, it’s a nice idea.
I do have some issues with it though. Firstly, it looks great on the model hotel room beds that they show people using it on, but in the real world, people’s night stands are crowded, cluttered, messes. I wouldn’t trust all the fragile glass, and liquid to the amount of stuff I leave and throw there. Secondly, it seems like there’s an awful lot that can go wrong here. It’s dependent on timers, and boilers. I’m sure most/all of this has been taken into account, but still, I don’t know if I would trust it.
And finally, wouldn’t the smell of fresh coffee grounds be enough to keep you awake? Yes fresh brewed coffee is nice to smell, but fresh grounds, in my opinion, is a much nicer, stronger smell.
