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.

  • Factory activity in Europe, Asia cools; demand lull a concern
    BANGALORE/SYDNEY (Reuters) - Factory activity in Europe and Asia cooled in August after a strong July, as new orders dwindled in the face of escalating tensions in Ukraine and a patchy recovery in China, purchasing managers indexes showed. Despite euro zone manufacturers barely raising their prices, growth in the region slowed slightly more than initially thought, and activity in China's vast factory sector slackened on weak foreign and domestic demand, stoking speculation that further policy stimulus would be needed. "A concerted slowdown in the China, euro zone and UK manufacturing PMIs as the second quarter gets under way raises alarm bells about global demand conditions," said Lena Komileva, chief economist at G+ Economics in London.
  • Investors look past Ukraine, focus on ECB
    World markets advanced on Monday despite the conflict in Ukraine, focusing on whether the European Central Bank will announce plans for economic stimulus when it meets this week. Ukraine reported its forces were under fire from Russian tanks again on Monday, as new signs emerged that the turmoil was damaging the European economy. Latin American stocks mostly rose, with Brazil's benchmark Bovespa index (.BVSP) leading gains after an opinion poll showed declining re-election chances for President Dilma Rousseff, accused by investors of being excessively interventionist in the economy. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko accused Russia on Monday of "direct and undisguised aggression", after warning over the weekend of a possible "full-scale war."
  • U.S. inflation bonds back in vogue
    Fund managers said the rising cost of housing - which accounts for as much as a third or more of various measures of inflation and is outpacing other consumer cost increases - has revived price pressure in the economy.
