When making a cup of coffee, The Barisieur subtly awakes the user through the stainless steel ball bearings that boil water through induction heating, resulting in the heavenly smell of a fresh cup o’ joe.

Hidden from the light lies a milk vessel that’s sealed to keep it cool and fresh. Its Corian drip tray can be removed to act as a coaster.
