Legend - Gosford

Legend - Gosford

Welcome back to Legend!

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 - Blend

"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 - Blend

"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"

"We froth on high quality Colombian coffee's, and Andino is a great example of why we do. It's clean, sweet and juicy, the kind of coffee you won't realise you've just smashed three cups of. Andino has a stonefruity acidity, with a heaps of sugary sweetness."

"Honey processed coffee is kind of like a of hybrid of washed and natural coffee. Some mucilage is left on the cherry before the drying process, resulting in a somewhat clean, somewhat funky cup. Jose Hernan Quintero's coffee is a great example of a honey that is quite clean, without any of the ferment so prevalent in natural coffees. In the cup, it's real sweet, with medium acidity and a chewy, nutty finish. We called that plum, honey and nougat. Great as filter or espresso."
