'A CUP ABOVE' COFFEE SPOT NOW OPEN IN SMITH RIVER

By Christine Walters

Wescom News Service

Marci Wallace and her family have opened a new espresso drive-through stand in the parking lot of All Star Liquors at 12559 U.S. Highway 101 North. in Smith River. Called "A Cup Above," the coffee shop is open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week.

Wallace has worked at other coffee shops, but this is her first venture as the owner of one.

Her brother Matt assists in the operation and her retired parents, Mel and Mary, share ownership of the business as well as helping run things.

"We have a well-trained, super friendly staff," Marci Wallace said. "Another reason our espresso is so good is that we buy our beans from Long Bottom Roasting Co., which uses a special air-roasting process that makes a strong coffee with less bitterness."

  • Eyes on Fed after ECB, other bank stimulus moves
    The Federal Reserve could be key for Wall Street next week as investors get to hear from the U.S. central bank for the first time since a series of moves by its global peers, including the European Central Bank's massive stimulus plan. Thursday's larger-than-expected stimulus package from the ECB lifted U.S. stocks, helping indexes post gains for the week after three straight weeks of losses.
  • All eyes on Fed, Greece after ECB fires bazooka
    After the surprises from central banks which rocked markets at the start of the year, the U.S. Federal Reserve will be watched as closely as ever this week to see that it doesn't stray from its own policy path. The atmosphere will already be tense as the fallout from Sunday's snap election in Greece settles and concern has grown in some quarters that central banks, which played such a big part in guiding economies through the financial crisis, are becoming less predictable. The shock of the Swiss National Bank abandoning its cornerstone currency cap had yet to fully subside when the European Central Bank said it would flood markets with over a trillion euros, more than expected, to prevent the euro zone from sliding into deflation. Canada also cut its rate out of the blue and Denmark did so twice to navigate a world of tumbling oil prices and weak growth.
  • Venezuela's currency woes an increasing threat to U.S. corporate profits
    In a likely sign of things to come from a number of companies this results reporting season, Ford Motor Co on Friday said it was taking a pre-tax charge of $800 million for its Venezuela business. Ford also said that it was unable to maintain normal production in Venezuela with the availability of vehicle parts constrained. Also on Friday, diaper and tissue maker Kimberly-Clark Corp said it took a fourth-quarter charge of $462 million for its Venezuelan business.
