The Barisieur – Funky, Fashionable, Functional, Fab Coffee
The Barisieur is an automatic coffee or tea brewer that just simply caught my eye as I was browsing the UK Pavilion at CES. The intriguing beauty however was not just skin deep. Lots of features, bells and whistles, but above all, makes great coffee! It is quite simply a premium alarm clock that eases you into your morning with the soothing sounds of bubbling water along with the smell of the freshly brewed coffee or loose leaf tea. Design is inspired by a combination of the modern ritual of filter coffee with the iconic vinyl record player, encouraging a nostalgic experience for the user. The design was born with a digital detox in mind, where the design language balances between simplicity and mystified alchemy; watch how the water magically transports from one vessel to other due to steam pressure some what resembling a serious chemical laboratory device. The boiling vessel on the left is sealed with a bung, which is essential for transporting the water. The Water boils due to the induction hob, heating up the stainless steel base. Steam pressure is produced, forcing the water out of the vessel and into the stainless steel filter, brewing the user a perfect beverage. There is a milk vessel which lifts out from the tray, Is cooled overnight/ throughout the day with the bespoke peltier cooler. Sealed drawer for Tea & Coffee and other necessities. A stunning piece of kit!
