Getting Caffeinated @ Pointzero Coffee

Before I proceed with this, I should probably put a huge disclaimer. I am not much of a coffee. But  @NairobiCaffeine has been trying to woo me into loving it by  tagging me along on his Caffeine Adventures.  Having heard and read so much about this café, I finally decided to go check it out.

Pointzero Cofee is located at the garden of the Nairobi Gallery. The set-up is quite simple but chic and refreshing. There are wooden tables and foldable lawn chairs with cushions and Ankara detailing. The seating areas is surrounded by a potted plants and wooden slats on one side.

The board has a hand-written Brewed coffee of the day and suggests the perfect accompaniment for the same. Really funky :)

Pointzero specializes in the selling of only coffee and accompaniments; a breath of fresh air in the sea of Nairobi “coffee houses”.  This place is a total win for those folks who go into a coffee house expecting just that; coffee! Good coffee for that matter.

The Caramel Machiatto

I wanted something mild. Both the Barista and my guide for the day,@Nairobicaffeine, recommended the Caramel Macchiato.  There was a buy one get one free offer so I settled on a Mocha for my second cup. My host, being a caffeine junky, chose the coffee of the day and a cappuccino.  Both of my coffees were amazing!

Tried to sample the “harder” coffees that my host was taking and I concluded that they were not my thing 😀  Coffee lovers will probably enjoy them!

If you have a palate for the milder coffees like yours truly, stay away from the Cappuccino and Espresso

What to love about Pointzero?

Their mugs and saucers are so cute. I’d go back there just to cuddle them :-)

The cakes are DIVINE! I got to sample the Butterscotch, Spicy orange,  Lemon and carrot cakes. Absolutely fantastic…and fresh!

The service is great! Very friendly staff.

I loved the creative décor of the place. The Ankara details , wood and potted plants makes the whole place super cool.

If you order house coffee, the re-fill is FREE! Aye?

The Wi-Fi is fast!!

There is no congestion. Place is so cosy and chilled . I’d recommend taking someone for a first date here *wink*

They actually brought us a charcoal warmer to keep us warm when the evening cold started creeping in. Now that’s superb customer service!

It’s pretty affordable!!

General Rating/Experience

Probably the coolest coffee house I have ever been to in a while. If there’s an Iron Throne for Coffee Houses in the CBD, then House Pointzero are the reigning lords.

Thanks to the lovely Barista , Agnes and her team, for the awesome service
