The Alarm Clock That Makes Fresh Coffee Is Worth Waking Up For

1

Waking up sucks. Well, at least it did before your alarm clock had coffee ready for you when you finally roll over.

Brought to us by London-based industrial designer Joshua Renouf, the Barisieur is an alarm clock that doubles as a coffee maker. Just try not to blindly slap the snooze button… that’ll leave a mark.

Coffee Cup Art Left Behind For Others To Find

coffee-cup-art-5

Starting the day off with coffee is good. Add some coffee cup art to the mix and suddenly your morning is a little bit more tolerable.

If you’re lucky enough to frequent the same coffee shop as artist Jimmy T., you could have that super-morning. Jimmy creates illustrations on takeaway coffee cups, and then leaves them behind for patrons of the shop to find.

Of course, this isn’t before Jimmy documents the drawings on his Tumblr blog, Morning Coffee Cup Art, where you can see his ongoing series.

Cappuccino Potato Chips Exist

Since you’re probably going to eat potato chips for breakfast anyway… Cappuccino Potato Chips now exist.

Part of Lay’s Do Us A Flavor campaign, where they crowdsource ideas for new chip varieties, the coffee chips are part of an experiment including Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese, Mango Salsa, and Wasabi Ginger. Voting to decide the official new flavor starts in 12 days.

Great… But can we get the cappuccino chips in half-caf, two-pump, extra-foam, mocha-choca? Asking for a friend.

A Rum That Tastes Like Coffee and Cigarettes Exists

If you’re a rum drinker, then there’s a good chance that you’re no stranger to the combination of coffee and cigarettes.

Stolen Rum knows this, and has brought us Coffee and Cigarettes Rum. Now, did they actually go to the trouble of replicating the taste of a cigarette? Not really, but the rum is infused with roasted coffee and smoke flavor. So, you can be smelling just like your degenerate uncle in no time.

Coffee Cups of The World, A Photo Series of Beautiful Takeaway Cups

Go Get Em Tiger, Los Angeles

Go Get Em Tiger, Los Angeles

As most of you may not realize – because there’s always that same green mermaid on your coffee — is that takeaway coffee cups are often an exercise in minimalist beauty and sharp graphic design.

Artist Henry Hargreaves sees the aesthetic appeal in these disposable items, and has documented drinking vessels from around the globe, with Coffee Cups of The World.

The series takes us through this often overlooked art form — from the minimalist approach, to the hard sell of garish colors or a humorous cartoon.
