The Barisieur is an alarm clock that brews a fresh cup of coffee for you, bedside. Patrick Holland/CNET Imagine waking up from a deep slumber to the gentle sound of water boiling and dripping onto coffee grounds. The air fills with the warm, welcome aroma of coffee. You open your eyes to see a clear glass cup on top of your alarm clock fill drop by drop with beautiful caffeinated gold. If you need cold half-and-half, no worries, there’s a petite chilled cup inside the clock at the ready. For coffee lovers this scenario may seem like a dream, but it’s the reality delivered by the Barisieur hybrid alarm clock/coffee maker. The alarm clock initially got my attention at CES this year because it reminded me of the elaborate chemistry setup that Gale uses to make coffee on Breaking Bad. The Barisieur is absolutely stunning to look at, balancing the clean beauty of scientific glassware with the natural appeal of stained walnut. A drawer on the front holds ground coffee and a scoop, and there’s even a tiny cup for cold milk submerged in the base. An infrared sensor regulates the temperature to keep the milk around 3 degrees Celsius, which converts to about 37 degrees Fahrenheit.The Barisieur doesn’t have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Alexa or Google Assistant. The only thing it connects is you with the start of your day, awakening each of your senses. Tags 2 The shaky world of coffee maker startups Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: CES 2019: A pet dryer, a bed that rocks you to sleep… The idea is to set the Barisieur up the night before by portioning coffee into a metal mesh cone filter and filling the glass flask with water. You can also steep tea in it if you prefer.I saw the alarm clock all prepped to make coffee and it evoked a delightful alchemy feel, as if I had laid out ingredients to make a secret potion, which is what coffee is for many of us.The brew process starts when the alarm goes off or when you push the button. The Barisieur lacks any kind of touchscreen, instead opting for physical buttons and dials. Also worth noting: You can set the alarm to go off without making coffee, just like a regular alarm clock. But why would you do that? Once the alarm is triggered, the water inside the flask is heated and pushed up the siphon tube to drip over the grounds. Imagine waking up to this every morning. Barisieur I tasted a cup of coffee brewed by the Barisieur and it was good. It had a smoothness to it reminiscent of coffee made with a Hario dripper. I was also impressed with how fast it was able to brew a cup. It’s not as fast as something like a Keurig, but you’re getting a much better cup of coffee. Practically speaking, many kitchen coffee makers already let you set a brew time. An alarm clock that doubles as a coffee brewer seems like something the inventor Randall Peltzer from Gremlins would dream up. But the Barisieur’s sophisticated design and straightforward operation should make it right at home at the bedside for many coffee lovers. It’s also easy to envision it in a boutique hotel or a nice Airbnb rental. My only gripe, and it’s a small one, is that it makes just one cup. If you live with someone, there’s bound to be an awkward moment fighting over whose cup it is. I mean, I guess you could share. The Barisieur costs $445 or £345, which converts roughly to AU$625, and is available for purchase now. 5:32 Comments 11 Photos Coffee Makers
Sony Pictures Television is folding the Crackle Latin America subscription VOD service, which has 400,000 subscribers across 17 countries, after concluding the business isn’t economically viable.Crackle Latin America first launched in April 2012 as an ad-supported streaming service — like the U.S. version of Crackle — before switching in 2016 to a subscription video-on-demand model, distributed through pay-TV partners. Crackle Latin America will shut down effective April 30, 2019, the result of Sony Pictures’ company-wide strategic review of its portfolio to prune underperforming divisions.“After much consideration, we have decided that Crackle Latin America is not sustainable in the present highly competitive local environment,” Keith Le Goy, Sony Pictures’ president of worldwide TV distribution, wrote in a memo to staff Thursday, a copy of which was obtained by Variety. With the shutdown, 17 employees will be let go. Crackle Latin America has been operated out of Miami with staff spread across offices in L.A., Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia.Sony’s Crackle Latin America was run separately from Crackle in the United States. Last summer, SPT revealed plans try to sell a stake in the Crackle U.S. business to a strategic partner, after years of mulling various options — including a possible sale — for the ad-supported VOD streaming network. Meanwhile, Sony shut down the Crackle Canada AVOD service in June 2018. SPT still operates a free, ad-supported Crackle service in Australia.In the Latin American markets, the Crackle SVOD service carried Crackle original series produced out of the U.S. as well as in-language versions of Sony movies like “Hotel Transylvania” and Adam Sandler’s “Big Daddy,” “Grown Ups 2” and “Click.” Third-party content on the service has included “Captain America,” “Finding Nemo” and TV series “Scorpion.”Some Crackle originals will find a home on Sony’s Canal Sony and AXN channels in the region, which Le Goy described in the memo as “strong brands achieving solid growth” that “among the top cable channels in Latin America.” Pricing for Crackle Latin America services was around $5 per month but varied across the region, with cable operators and other affiliates setting the retail price.Read Le Goy’s full memo:SPT team –I wanted to make you all aware of an important upcoming change in our networks business in Latin America. As of April 30, we will discontinue the Crackle Latin America SVOD service.As you know, an important part of our reimagine efforts has been a top-down review of our current businesses to determine their strength and growth potential in today’s marketplace. After much consideration, we have decided that Crackle Latin America is not sustainable in the present highly competitive local environment.The decision to close Crackle Latin America is unrelated to the U.S. Crackle business, which is operated independently as an ad-supported AVOD service. We continue to explore potential strategic partnerships for Crackle in the U.S. and will share more information when possible. While we are closing the Crackle Latin America service, OTT/direct-to-consumer remains an incredibly important area for our evolving industry and we will persist in exploring other opportunities in the space. We also remain focused on our existing core business and channels in the region, Canal Sony and AXN. They are strong brands achieving solid growth and are among the top cable channels in Latin America. We will continue to think big, innovate and invest in these assets and other new prospects that we believe have great potential for our business and our viewers.We are proud of the accomplishments achieved in building Crackle Latin America into a service with more than 65 MSO affiliates across 17 countries and a loyal subscriber base from the ground up. I would like to personally thank our dedicated colleagues who have worked on Crackle Latin America over the past almost seven years. We greatly appreciate your hard work and contribution to SPT’s overall growth in the region.– Keith Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
