Yesterday I got my weekly email from KidzMatter.org. Right away, the bold, black font popped out at me. Immediately I said to myself, “I really like that font. I gotta have it.” So, I did the shameless thing and email KidsMatter.org to ask them what font they used. 🙂 Actually, I was in luck. I know the guy (Evan) who designs these weekly emails and he was more than happy to throw me a bone. Thanks a million Evan.
The font is called Kenyan Coffee. It’s got a 1920’s New York art deco look and feel that’s strong but unique. To do what they did in this email, I probably would have defaulted to Arial Black, but Kenyan Coffee is a great substitute. I’m looking forward to using it soon.
This font can be downloaded here.

You’re more than welcome! I love finding alternatives to the standard go-to fonts. Unless of course, it’s Helvetica. ‘Cause Helvetica is the official awesome font of the world.
