On average we'd say we probably hit the snooze about 50 times before actually getting up. But what if when we begrudgingly reach for the snooze button for a few more minutes of sleep we're met with a hot cup of freshly brewed pour over coffee instead? Well, designer Josh Renouf aims to make that dream a reality with his Bariseur alarm clock and coffee maker.

Although Renouf's Bariseur has yet to be released, it's already creating quite a buzz. According to the British designer's website, they are in the process of developing the coffee lover's alarm clock, but estimate that it will retail between $250 and $425-- a small price to pay for coffee in bed.

Anyways, here's how it works:
