New City Featured in Boston Magazine

Hudson’s flourishing culinary scene is starting to turn heads - so much so that Boston Magazine recently featured some of Hudson’s coolest eateries. 

We’re happy to say that New City Microcreamery made the cut, as did the “shoe shop” next door.

Check out what Brittany Jasnoff of Boston Magazine had to say about Our little Ice Cream & Coffee Shop:

“The Rail Trail team added something sweet to their arsenal this past May, with a 5,000-   square-foot ice cream shop directly across the street from the restaurant. Not content to churn the Mapleline Farm dairy the old-fashioned way, executive pastry chef Elaine Stella (Harvest, L’Espalier) is flash-freezing flavors like rum-Raisinet and chipotle-mezcal with liquid nitrogen. The process, with its clouds of smoke, results in not only a smoother, creamier product, but also a rapt audience. Don’t even think about ordering yours without a buttery waffle cone and a sprinkling of “funk”—toppings such as torn chunks of orange–olive oil cake.”

It looks like we may have more Bostonians on our hands in the coming weeks!

What is an Americano?

What is an Americano?

If you’ve visited New City for a coffee, you may have noticed our Americano offering on the chalkboard. but do you really know what it is?

In the United States, drip coffee reigns supreme. But when you look at how coffee is consumed globally, you’ll find that the Americano is actually SECOND in popularity only to a typical Italian Espresso (again, not drip coffee).

Origins of the Americano vary, but the most widely believed take is the most interesting to share. You see, when American soldiers came to Italy during WWII, they needed their coffee bad. The only problem was that Italian espresso was much too strong for their drip coffee taste buds. So they did what any level-headed American would do - they mixed it with hot water. Ahhh, brilliance.

Well, the Americano has stuck around, and for good reasons. Our Counter Culture Espresso is rich and earthy, so you get to really taste it when added to hot water. It’s up to you whether or not to add cream or sugar, so it’s a low-calorie option compared to a typical latte, and yet will keep you warmer for longer than a single shot of espresso.

Come visit us at 28 Main Street in Hudson, MA for an Americano, Latte, or Affogato. There’s Wifi, there’s pastries, and plenty of ice cream too!
