possible round 2 of the coffee set?
« on: Thu, 09 January 2014, 14:30:26 »
I gotta say I love that set and want it badly, is there another round coming? Perhaps this time with 2 color options for the ` and \ keys?

thanks!

In one of their threads they mentioned they are planning to do a Round 2 of this set. This was some months ago though...

If they do Round 2 with Cherry Legends I will buy a second set!!

We've received a ton of requests to restock the coffee set.
Originally we never planned to restock it because it wasn't selling very well at all. We sold nearly half of our remaining inventory for barely any profit to China because of this.
We're currently working on a mini 12 key function set for Valentines. Once Valentines is over I'll start a group buy for the Coffee Set again.

Good to hear, always glad to get the Coffee set upgraded with Cherry Font, should look brilliant next to a bagel or donut.

Good to know!

Have you considered using Cherry font to make it a little different to Round one without changing the theme? I am sure you will be allowed to use those legends if you ask the Geekhack Mods.

An ISO option would be nice too for us dirty Europeans ;)

PS:   

I got my order yesterday! Love the translucent spacebars and the LED keychain :)

The requests probably started pouring in After the clearance price drop, right?  The listing was left up on the site with the lowered price, which likely made it a lot more enticing.  I really like the set regardless, just mentioning this as a possible explanation for increased interest after the set sold out.

I'm definitely interested in a couple sets. They were one of the first sets that caught my eye at the beginning of my keyboard addiction last year. By the time I was ready to buy- they were gone. Hope this happens!

Yes you are right. The orders did start pouring in after our clearance sale but by then it was too late. I believe it was only a $10 difference.
We really want to use the Cherry font but have doubts if this is possible. I've tried to help with the project by offering to pay for any unpaid legends but haven't had any luck.. I'll see if I can try to work something out to make it happen.

tbh I dont have a huge preference for Cherry legends, the standard good old font we've always been using is great too, imo

Along with the group buy can you include the num pad.

No number pad was the only reason I didn't buy a set.
