Maxkey

This set of keycaps is designed by designer York Chan (晨曦), who has designed many famous keycaps. This time, the matcha chocolate keycaps are a product which has been published for some years, and at that time there is not today so large custom players group and so many custom manufacturers. The matcha keycaps are one of rare SA Profile keycaps which can be easily purchased in China.

First, let’s look at its color scheme.

Although the composition of colors are similar, the different colors of matcha keycaps on R1 and R2 rows are matched. The color scheme of Matcha keycaps on the R1 is mainly based on green with chocolate-colored characters, while the large key area is designed in reverse color with pink as ornaments, making the sweet chocolate color scheme feel a little more refreshing.

The color scheme of Matcha keycaps on the R2 is on the contrary. It mainly is white chocolate as the base color with matcha green. Such a color design is actually more in line with the production of matcha chocolate in real life. Because the main raw material of matcha chocolate is white chocolate.

The box is still MAXKEY’s usual simple style, with MAXKEY’s QR code and SA Keycap MOCHOCO’s keycap name on the side.

MAXKEY’s keycap box uses a two-layer structure, and in the upper part of each layer, there is a sponge bumping pad to prevent it from bumping.

Take out the keycaps and you can see that the matcha-themed keycaps in light green, coffee color and pink. The feeling when it comes into your sight is like smelling the light scent of matcha. It is just like Macha powder on the strong coffee, intoxicating.

The design way of the letter area of the Matcha keycap is the same as the traditional SA keycaps with the characters centered and highly visible. Similarly, as a feature, the keycap’s letter area and function area are used reverse color, with pink as ornaments.

Because the Matcha keycaps use ABS double-shot process, its color is very bright and clear.

Of course, as a set of design keycaps, the corresponding personality keycap is essential, and this set of MAXKEY matcha keycaps feature common matcha drinks, food as its design point, plus the Chinese character “抹” as an embellishment, which is very innovative.

A close observation can make you find a fine frosted texture on the edge of keycaps. In terms of its hand feel, it keeps fresh and not sticky. On the back of Matcha keycaps, you can see the unique one-time molding pressure mold traces of the double-shot keycaps, which is very complex. And this is also one of the reasons why ABS double-shot keycaps are more expensive.

The personalized 2.75U enter key is also well-made, with a soft green word “抹” written on the surface of the pink keycap.

Finally, the SA profile keycaps use the standard tile from R1-R1-R2-R3-R4-R3, which conform to ergonomics.

And this is a brief introduction to MAXKEY’S Mactha keycaps, and then the AKKO Matcha and red beans keyboard comes.
