Whatever the weather may be, there’s always room for some ice cream. If you’re a little bored of the usual suspects Kurimu’s pints may be something you’ll want to consider.
Kurimu is an online business that sells Japanese-inspired ice cream. All of its pints are handcrafted and made in small batches daily to ensure utmost quality. There are currently five flavors, with a new flavor in collaboration with Yardstick Coffee launching this Friday.

The newest addition—aptly named Kohi ice cream—is a coffee-flavored ice cream infused with Yardstick’s famous Golden Ticket blend.
“We’ve always admired Yardstick Coffee’s philosophy of pushing the boundaries of its singular vision—coffee. This is evident in what (it does) and how far (it has) come. With that in mind, we came together to explore how we can marry both ice cream and coffee under the same philosophy of doing simple things really well,” says the brand.
Their ice cream takes signature notes from Yardstick’s Golden Ticket blend, like milk chocolate, almonds and caramel, and infuses them into Kurimu’s handcrafted ice cream base.
Their current roster includes black sesame, matcha, shoyu caramel, kinako chocolate and kinako vanilla, which sell at P420 a pint, while their soon to be launched kohi flavor is priced at P450.
For every pint of kohi flavored ice cream sold through the Kurimu and Yardstick websites and at the Yardstick Roastery Cafe in Legaspi Village, Kurimu will be donating P50 to AHA! Learning Center—a foundation that supports schools and communities with its free after-school programs that target children from grades 1 to 10.
Aside from the striking minimalism of Kurimu’s aesthetic and its new collaboration with one of the best local coffee roasters in town for a good cause, what really sets the brand apart is just how good its ice cream is.
Each pint is made with a lot of care and attention to detail. The first thing you notice when you scoop is just how velvety soft the texture of the ice cream is.
No matter how low your freezer’s temperature is, it never hardens to rock solid. There’s no mandatory thaw period between when you want ice cream and when your ice cream is actually ready to eat.
Unlike most mass-produced ice creams, Kurimu’s ice cream tastes like real, full-fat cream. It’s rich, velvety, smooth and doesn’t leave a weird aftertaste.
It’s the real deal.
