The fun starts with the name "Kaffeesatz": it's the ground coffee on  
the bottom of a mug (or what's left in the filter). But the word  
"Satz" ("Kaffee" is "coffee" or Kofi) also stands for "type!"

Digits and currencies are monospaced – nice when you create the price  
list for your international espresso bar. (Or a fixed table like  
Alain Schremmer needs to.) It also has some alternative glyphs and  
extra ligatures, like the tz.



A blizzard is when it snows sideways.
