Colombian coffee house Jura will close on February 13.
The restaurant will close in the afternoon of February 10, the owner told The New York Times.
According to the Times, the closure is “due to a change in the way we operate, which has affected the profitability of the business.”
The chain’s owner, Jose Rangel, said in a statement that the restaurant was “a very important part of the community and is one of the pillars of the economy.”
“Our aim is to reopen the Jura and continue to support our customers and employees by paying their salaries,” he added.
The chain, founded in 1997, had closed in 2009.
The owners of several other coffee houses in Colombia are expected to reopen their doors later this month.
Jura Coffee House, located in a strip mall in the centre of Bogota, closed in 2013.
The owner of the chain told local media that he “was forced to close the business” after he could not get permission to reopen in Bogota.
The Colombian government has also announced that it will be banning coffee shops and restaurants from opening in the capital.
The country has a thriving coffee industry.
According a 2015 study by the Center for Economics and Business Research, Colombia had an annual coffee consumption of 1.2 million metric tons, or 10 million pounds, of coffee, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
More than half of that was consumed in coffee shops.
The FAO also estimated that more than one-third of the country’s coffee is consumed by tourists.
