(SPOT.ph) Filipinos are more conscious of their cups of joe now more than ever, with a thriving community of folks who appreciate the field of specialty coffee—and go by the third-wave coffee philosophy. You can thank Yardstick in large part for helping fuel the movement's popularity locally since first opening their coffee shop at Legazpi Village, Makati in 2013. Sadly, Yardstick shared a bit of sad news earlier today—that is, the said outpost will be closing its doors for the time being.

The Makati outpost of Yardstick is bidding us goodbye for now:

Yardstick announced the closure in an Instagram post published today, November 24. "Change is inevitable and as we turn nine next week, it's time to close a chapter. It's time to say goodbye to Yardstick Legazpi Village in its current iteration," it reads. In an exchange with SPOT.ph, Yardstick's Kevin Tang further explains that they're just "closing for renovations"—cue sigh of relief. It's nevertheless well worth dropping by on Sunday, November 27 to savor the OG branch in its current state, and to relive your memories of their quaint space.

The homegrown coffee shop made their debut in 2013, roasting and peddling great-quality beans and stellar brews over at their shop in Esteban Street, Legazpi Village. They also held classes and workshops for fellow enthusiasts, which spread awareness about the craft and deepened our love for the work that goes into a good cup of joe. Yardstick's also gained global recognition, having been featured as the sole PH entry in international publishing house Gestalten's Knife and Fork book for their distinct design. In case you must have your Yardstick fix once the Makati branch closes, you can still head to their second full branch in MOA (which opened earlier this year!), or their smaller semi-outposts in Salcedo Village’s Cartel Coffee Deli and The Podium’s The Daily Cut.
