Please correct me if I am wrong, I thought that the marzipam taste
means that it is slightly underroasted.  You should have pulled the
roast when you smelledl the almond-like nuttyness.
-I don't think I underoasted it. It definitley didn't tast raw.. Maybe a
better word would have been Frangelica like nuttiness. Either way, it was
complex nuttiness (hard to describe I guess). I also got some floral notes
at the beginning to complement the citrus zest. It will be interesting to
see what it tastes like roasted a little further, though, but I'm not keen
enough yet to point out individual smells as I'm roasting. Happy Roasting!

Hey the proof is in the cup.  If you liked it, then its good...  At
the Chicago roast off last week, I roasted 2 lb of La Minita.  We were
about to pull the beans when a fellow roaster (with much more
experience than I) said to wait a bit.  He said that he was smelling
marzipan and the roast needed a bit more.  That you want to smell IIRC
a toasted almond-like nuttyness.  This was something I didn't know and
was just trying to pass it on.  Sorry if I offended.
