There will be 75 sets available! We're also currently focused on producing 2 more color schemes in the next following months~

that looks very nice! Is it going to be just the 87key set like shown then I take it?
We originally planned for a full 104 key set but decided against it in the end to take advantage of producing other different fun and unique color schemes.
Each set will come with 2 space bars(1 brown & 1 tan), the original esc key, the F5-F8 Keys, and 5 Coffee keycaps!

With this set coming out, the coffee keycaps are already at low stock currently.

Our target price is currently at $95(subject to change possibly) but we are considering opening a pre-order if the demand is there for a cheaper price.

Any hints?? Something similar to one of the keycaps you currently offer?
Because the other 2 designs are not close to completion, I can't really say much at this point because they may drastically change at any given point. All I can say is that we are not working on classic colors like the Dolch color. We'd like to really expand the variety with new, bold, and unique colors for the keyboard community.

We'll also finally be selling Smile! keycaps individually(limited) very soon.

Also... we're working on organizing a group buy for geekhack on a new design~

I own a full-sized board myself but unfortunately the demand for them currently is very low :[. We do plan on incorporating them in future sets but for now we'd like to start small.

I guess there is no chance you will offer an ISO Set (1x big enter + 1x smaller left shift + 1x blank key) for the coffee set?

I'd also be interested in a modifier only coffee set like this:

Wasn't it $95 for the whole set? That doesn't seem too bad from a vendor (though lower of course is always better) :)

Oh, damn.. well the keys looked "blanked out" in comparison to the mods at first glance. I thought this was showing that this is a mod set but I guess now looking at the pic.... it is 87 key. My mistake.

Isn't 95$ a little pricey for a mod set?

[edit] I guess its a little more than a "mod set", eh, but still.

We're sorry you feel that way :\. The price was heavily contemplated on and we feel the price is fair.

No no, you are right. I didnt realize this was 87 key because the pic sort of fooled me. I deleted my above post. Sorry.

No worries~ The entire set is 93 keycaps which comes out to be roughly a dollar per keycap. You will be getting a esc key and the original f5-f8 keycaps in addition to the coffee keycaps.
Each set also comes with a full set of stabilizers that DO fit.

Unfortunately it was just too far out of our budget to squeeze it in. Once we break even with this set we'll start incorporating more options.

Love the new color. That deep purple is one of the colors I have been after for a while, but there are only a handful of keycaps I have ever seen that have it.

Oh and btw I loved that extra free keycap in my last order nokcha. Nice surprise !
