We need this because reasons. This one’s for the coffee drinkers amongst you - British designer Joshua Renouf has come up with a coffee making alarm clock which can wake you up with a fresh cup of joe.
I used to do this with the timer on my coffee maker and just have a separate alarm clock. Seems pointless to combine two devices. If you already have a coffee maker with a timer on it and an alarm clock, you don’t need this.
