Organic, freshly ground coffee beans from the Oregon Coast, a large variety of choices and smiles all around are just a few of the features that attract customers – in cars and on foot – to Surfside Espresso at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Co-owned by Dave and Jude Hodge and Jessica Schonert, Jude's son Derek Chavez is also involved with the business.

Surfside's menu includes expected coffee drinks such as cappucinos and latts.

In addition, the menu includes flavored coffee drinks with names such as the "Beach Bum" and "Shark Attack."

Frescantes, which Jude Hodge describes as "souped-up milk shakes made with ice instead of ice cream" are included on the menu, as are smoothies made with real fruit.

Coffee can be added to the frescantes; except for the fruit smoothies, any drink can be made sugar free and with skim milk.

Surfside has 19 sugar-free flavors and 39 additional sweetened flavors.

All the frescantes flavored drinks were created and tested by Jessica Schonert and her family and staff.

Calling first for large orders, filling a 32-ounce thermos with coffee for $2 and creating custom drinks, many sugar-free and low fat, are among the services Surfside Espresso can provide.

Jude Hodge said that the Surfside Espresso will continue with many promotions, including cards that give the customer one free drink after ten are bought.

Currently, people can "Catch the wave"... the coffee stand's theme, and win a month's worth of libations by going online to www.Surfside Espresso.com.

The stand is open daily from 6 a.m to 6 p.m. and will open even earlier during the winter crabbing season.

When an open-air market is held in the same parking lot as Surfside Espresso, patrons can park off the road behind the espresso stand and honk for service. Whether parking or phoning, the order will be brought to the customer.

The phone number is (541) 251-4100. The address is 16372 Lower Harbor Road. To find the stand, follow signs from 101 to Lower Harbor Road.

  • Exclusive: China meat supplier faced claims last year over unethical work practices
    Shanghai Husi Food, the U.S.-owned Chinese food supplier at the center of a meat safety scandal, won a court case earlier this year against a former quality control officer whose claims included that he was made to forge meat production dates. Wang Donglai, who worked at Shanghai Husi Food from 2007 to 2013, sought around 38,000 yuan ($6,100) in compensation for damage to his health from exposure to chlorine used as a cleaning agent by the meat processor. He also sought to terminate his contract at Shanghai Husi, claiming he was forced to work overtime and made to do "unethical work" that violated food safety laws, court documents showed. At his hearing last October, Wang said he was unwilling to illegally forge dates at the plant, adding that he repeatedly urged his employer to change a practice which he said violated food safety laws and hurt consumer interests, according to court documents seen by Reuters.
  • Amazon's heavy investing eats into bottom line, shares drop
    Amazon.com Inc posted a much larger-than-expected loss in the second quarter as it continues its rapid pace of investment in new businesses such as digital content and consumer electronics. Amazon's stock price has dropped 10 percent so far in 2014, with investors leery of betting on its long-term growth at the expense of little to no profit. Amazon is investing heavily in new businesses and hardware products, as it prepares to take on major tech rivals from Apple Inc and Google Inc to Netflix. Chief Financial Officer Tom Szkutak said Amazon had a "tremendous amount of opportunities" and its investments were "certainly impacting short-term results."
  • Visa cuts revenue forecast as cross-border transactions slow
    Visa, which gets about 60 percent of its total transaction volume from outside the United States, cut its full-year revenue growth forecast to 9-10 percent from 10-11 percent.

Wedbush Securities Inc analyst Gil Luria said Visa's international transaction revenues was growing at the lowest rate since the financial crisis. The U.S. dollar held near eight–month highs against the euro on Wednesday as worries over tougher sanctions on Russia and their potential impact on fragile euro zone growth weighed on the single currency.
