Kenya Muguongo Peaberry

At our NoMad location, we are now serving this exclusive Kenyan coffee for espresso - and are the only shop in NYC to do so! This coffee has a full and rich body with bright citrus and stone fruit tones with savory finish.
A peaberry coffee is a natural mutation that happens while growing coffee plants. They are hand sorted and separated from the regular beans and sold at a premium due to its sweet and fruit flavor profile and also the extra labor that is needed to sort said beans.

Barista's Favorite - Emily:

My favorite drink to make and have is a cortado. Not only do I a-d-o-r-e the name, but I love and appreciate the perfect espresso-to-milk ratio. With a little less milk than a cappuccino, but more milk than a macchiato, this drink is ideal for someone who likes the flavor notes of a tasty espresso shot but also wants the creaminess of well-steamed milk. It's also the perfect amount of dairy if you're slightly lactose intolerant, like me! 

Order "Emily's favorite" at Chalait Hudson this week to receive 10% off a cortado. Maybe if you're lucky, I'll be on bar to make it for you!

Love, Em

A matcha shot is the perfect, healthy drink to make if you want to get energized throughout the day without the caffeine crash you get from coffee. It also increases your immune system, lowers sugar level, aids in weight loss, and keeps your skin as healthy as ever with its special anti-aging properties.

  • 1 tsp of Chalait Everyday/Top/Reserve Grade matcha powder (shop here)
  • 2 oz of 175 degree water (less than boiling)
  • 1 shot glass

Feeling hot in this summer heat? How about a refreshing rhubarb shrub.

Feeling hot in this summer heat? How about a refreshing rhubarb shrub.

It's now summer in New York City, and this is the time where it gets suuuuuper humid. 

The best way to beat the heat while enjoying your day is to have a nice, refreshing, ice-cold Chalait rhubarb shrub. It is healthy, tasty, and the best drink to cool you down.

Now, what is a shrub?

It is a sweetened vinegar-based syrup infused with fruit juice, herbs, and spices added into carbonated water. In other words it is a healthy, vinegar and fruit-based soda.

Stop by Chalait's Hudson location to give it a try.
299 West Houston Street
New York, NY 10014

See you there!

New location coming up in Hudson Square!

New location coming up in Hudson Square!

A new chapter is about to begin for Chalait this spring with the opening of the third cafe in Hudson Square! Chalait opened Manhattan’s first matcha-focused cafe in 2015 with a mission to honor tradition while making the tea more accessible. They do that by offering the premium tea found in Japanese tea ceremonies but serving it in a friendly, contemporary setting. While many cafes serving matcha source from importers, Chalait seeks to honor Japanese chado — or “Way of Tea” — by forging relationships directly with family owned Japanese farms. Chalait’s trained baristas then make the drink accessible to Western palates. The matcha tea menu draws inspiration from an espresso bar — matcha tea is served as a shot and then available in a variety of familiar drinks including a matcha latte, matcha Americano and matcha iced tea.


In addition to matcha, Chalait will be partnering up with Counter Culture Coffee to bring coffee enthusiasts some of the most exquisite and freshest coffee from around the world. The carefully curated coffee program will include espresso based beverages, single origin pour-over coffee, brewed coffee as well as some signature beverages.


At the Hudson Square cafe, Chalait will be serving an all-day food menu. A variety of freshly baked pastries, hand-crafted sandwiches and market salads will be available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything on the menu will be made daily using the best-quality ingredients available. The market salad menu will driven by seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms. The unique new pastry program will focus on fresh, seasonal produce to provide a sweetness reminiscent of the Japanese palette. Think house-made jams and bright citrus curds, the earthiness of matcha accenting bakery classics, presented with flair to satisfy chocoholics and vegans alike.


Can’t wait for Chalait’s Hudson cafe to open? Stop by for a delicious cup of matcha latte with the housemade almond-cashew milk at either the NoMad or Chelsea Market location!
