ESPRESSO STAND PROVIDES AN ORGANIC BUZZ

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
