[GB] SA Espresso | GB Closed
« on: Sun, 11 April 2021, 12:37:36 »
SA Espresso


Welcome to the GB of SA Espresso. 
A keycap set inspired by the rich colors of an espresso, from the dark brown of coffee beans to the caramel-like layer of crema that rises to the top of a perfect shot.


GB April 13th - May 14th 2021


Vendors

US: Kono
EU: MyKeyboard
OC: DailyClack
Asia: zFrontier
CA: Ashkeebs


Pricing



Estimated lead time: 12 months after group buy

Kits






















Renders










J-02 by Proto[Typist] Keyboards






Haus by Hand Engineering


Black Haus for the render.


GMMK PRO case. Model by Elmo, design by GPCGR.


Colors




Consider this image just a reference, as viewing the HEX on a screen is not accurate. I think these colors will work great, but I do have alternatives that are less/more saturated or a slightly different hue, in case the samples turn out a bit off and to make sure the subtle gradient is respected.


Deskmat






Collaborations

THOK x SA Espresso





RocketCables x SA Espresso











I want to thank everyone that supported the set during the IC. It was a pleasure to develop this idea with your help.
Special thanks to thatkoaladoe, shota_irl, NoPunIn10Did, Swishy and konstantin.

Will the Spacebars kit be using SP's new convex molds in those sizes?

No, it will be using non-convex R3 spaces

I'm super hyped for this set! It'll be my first ever GB.

At the risk of coming off as a complete newbie (because I am) - the TKL kit contains the alphas, right? I was trying to work it out but this is the first time I've seen a TKL set layout image without the alphas included.

No, Alphas is a separate kit.

Newbie question: are the two R3 rows (in the middle and on the bottom) in Specialties kit interchangeable? Will the 1.5u function key work on the bottom (space bar) row or will its profile be misaligned with the others?

They'll match. You can use that 1.5u Function key on either the home row or the bottom row and it'll look just fine. :thumb:

Ahhh yes, thanks so much for bring this to GB.
Just ordered some Alphas, TKL and Novelties.

Super happy that after all that time this is finally ran.

Now, let those caps grow, mature, get plucked, roasted with some nice dye, and shipped to my doorstep to grace my beloved machines.

The smaller spacebars aren't convex, it seems SP recently added convex options for these sizes but I didn't get to kit/quote them with that in mind.

Don't quote me on this but I think that is when the vendors have faith in the set and the extras they purchase will push it over to reach MOQ. I think and I hope this is what will happen with this set too. Im a hopeless coffee addict haha

You want Alpha and TKL at least.

As for the Meta and 2 blanks, if you want to keep the same key, then you want Specialty + Ortho. Otherwise, you can get the Novelty

Such a great set & colorscheme!
I cannot wait for a year.  :D

I ordered also the Ortho/40s set.
As this is my first GB: What happens, if it does not reach MOQ?
Should I switch to an alternative kit?
