The Waxwing was blended and roasted for you by Red Rooster Coffee. Waxwing is a custom blend of Fully Washed coffees from Colombia and Honduras. Developed as all purpose blend, this coffee is a great option for both espresso and filter coffee.
I know that Red Rooster is a VERY light roaster (they are relatively local to me), so I was hopeful that since it was a medium dark by their standards it would be my 'normal' light roast. It was definitely better than a previous light roast from RR, but the darker notes (the caramel and chocolate) were still hard to discern.
He liked this one, I don't remember this one.
100% my new daily coffee
Not as full-bodied as I like...merely OK
Loved the medium dark blend. Always wanting something in the middle of medium and dark and this was it!
It’s good, but a little nutty.
It definitely has a strong, bold flavor.
I love the packaging!
did not receive shipment
Nice cold brew
Good full body taste
Pretty good, again no complaints
Maybe it was just the somewhat darker roast but didn't care too much for this one. Definitely picked up on the chocolate notes.
Brewed in the Ratio 8 coffee maker. 55g beans, medium grind (22/40 - Baratza Encore). 1.2L of water.
This is the kind of coffee I'm always looking for. It has bold flavor without being to dark.

It tasted fresh, but something about the flavor profile both me and my wife did not just Love.
aeropress: kind of..boring(?) not as flavorful, not that rich.
This was just ok. Bitter earthy. Had a burnt aftertaste that lingers. Like burnt Carmel but not in a nice way.
Have only used for espresso so far. I'm not getting the chocolate or the caramel flavors, it's very bitter (but not in such a way where I brewed incorrectly). I'm excited to try this as a pour over or cold brew. It goes well with milk. I think maybe I like my coffee a liiiiittle bit brighter. We'll have to see!
This coffee tastes delicious. Well balanced.
Very acidic. Lots of citrus flavors, not at all what I'm looking for.
Very delicious and smooth! Easy to drink black.
Rich flavor - loved it

Not very good
I really enjoyed this coffee. A note for my curator, keep sending these yummy chocolate, Carmel full bodied coffees
Great aroma, full bodied, clean, well-balanced,
We really liked this one. One of our favorites
One of the best yet!
I really enjoyed the flavors in this coffee and it was well balanced. Very smooth and a repeat coffee purchase.
I found this a little weak in taste
A bit on the sour/acidic side.
This was a really good coffee. It was smooth and easy to drink with good flavors. However, there was a strange aftertaste that I didn't enjoy that much.
Very smooth, no unpleasant aftertaste
Seems somewhat bitter to my untrained pallette.
Great cup of Coffee, smooth and mellow while also complex
This was one of my favorite coffees so far. It had an interesting sweet, caramel taste, no bitter notes.
Not as smooth as I hoped
Second only to the daytripper so far of the coffees we have received
A standard diner blend. Not memorable, not terrible.
One of my favorites that 've gotten.
A delicious full-bodied coffee with the caramel notes coming in strong! It also got to us within one day of roasting which was unbelievable
This was pretty good, but not amazing in espresso
loved this one
I like the chocolat-ey flavor, but I would like more stronger, thicker taste. I can't taste the caramel as much.
