INDIANAPOLIS — After about one year in the business, Gavel Curated Coffee is closing up shop.

The Fountain Square coffee shop announced its closure on Tuesday evening in an Instagram post, citing problems with the owner's health and sustaining on its own.

"It was nearly a year ago when we opened," the post read. "We had highs and lows as we were perfecting our craft, and learning how to manage in real life what was once just a novel dream."

Gavel's post continued:

"We've always felt supported by our neighborhood, by friends and even by others in the coffee business. While Gavel has done well, it has never reached a point where it can sustain itself on its own. What's more, Carrie as owner and chef has faced health challenges throughout the process. We've realized the cost of her health is too high, preventing her from giving Gavel the attention it deserves to perform at its best."

Gavel was situated in the lobby of the marketing firm, MileHerndon, at 902 Virginia Avenue. They provided curated coffee, a select list of beer, wine, low-octane cocktails, as well as snacks and small-shareable plates.

Gavel's last day open is set for Sunday, Jan. 12.
