Legend - Gosford

Legend - Gosford

Hey! Welcome to your first Drop. To start you off, we have some delicious coffees from Legend in Gosford.

Pete (first picture) and I first met in 2019 when he came to work with me briefly at Harvest Specialty Coffee. Back then, Legend was in its infancy. Battling with council approvals, Pete would spend his lunch breaks on the phone to his project manager to keep things moving along.

Pete was looking to take Sydney & Melbourne level specialty coffee north, a sentiment that has been carried throughout the Legend team. Fast forward 3 years and Legend has become the spot on the central coast for specialty coffee. 

As with all the roasters we feature, Legend focuses its sourcing on producers & importers that are ecologically & socially sustainable.

Gossy

"It's straight outta Gosford. Built to be served primarily with milk, Gossy Good Times is just like the streets of its namesake, big, bold and straight up trouble. If you like your coffee a bit darker, with some jammy sweetness, this coffee is for you. Can also be served black if you're looking for a more traditional espresso."

Seasonal

"This is our lighter, more modern blend. It features two rotating high quality AA+ coffees. It's clean, sweet and super smashable. The Seasonal Blend is designed to work with any brew method. Served with milk it's milkshake sweet, and served black it's clean with a bright fruity acidity"

Single origins

 

Victor Felix Ramirez, Colombia

"Victor Felix has been in coffee since a young age as his parents are coffee growers, from whom he has learned about the crop. He has worked in coffee for a long time and when he got married, he decided to buy his own farm to start producing coffee with his own family.

Along with his wife, Blanca Rubi, they bought their own farm in the rural area of Pitalito, south of the Huila region, and named it La Fortuna. From the start, he knew that the piece of land would bring good fortune and luck.

Their journey in coffee has been going strong for 35 years now and it was 3 years ago they made the switch to specialty coffee.

This change has also brought a change of mindset for Victor.

He is know keen to learn, he thinks more about quality and hence has acquired more knowledge that he has put into practice, improving the cup quality and the coffee trees. But also, and most important to him, coffee has united the family much more and he is proud that they all work together, achieving what they have today.

The future looks bright, but of course it requires a big effort and work, as for example, one of the main challenges they face are the shortage of work force. As future plans for the farm, Victor Felix wants to improve his infrastructure, have new varieties, and also plant native trees for the future."
