If it existed we’d quickly purchase an alarm clock that started dispensing caffeine directly into our body about 10 minutes before the alarm actually went off. Basically, we want to limit the coffee-less downtime that occurs from the moment we roll out of bed til the second our coffee maker finishes churning out our morning brew. Until somebody gets on that alarm clock idea, we’ll pick up the new PIXIE from Nespresso. It heats up to brewing temperature in 25 seconds – less time than it takes us to locate the sweetener in our early morning haze. The whole pod unit is super compact so you’ll have room for all your other kitchen countertop gadgets like the portable smoker, SousVide Supreme and the Slap Chop (what, it’s a helpful product). It’s available in a variety colors and will gear you up for the day’s work in no time.
