Topic: Firsts and Mocca Raimi (4 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: AlChemist John
I have just have just had the opportunity for a few of combination firsts.
This weekend, I rewired and modified my WBI for an independent heater 
switch and slightly more air flow (replaced with a "real" fan blade).  On 
Tuesday I received my SM order of a bunch of new beans. And a new 
thermometer from SM, so I could have temperature data/control.   As the 
first, I went for the Mocca Raimi (BTW, what's with the "Rimy" and Mocca 
not "Mohka?) profile roasted as close as I could get to Mike McG. Black 
bear profile.  I guess I am MMBB profiling .
Anyway, I roasted some Mocca Raimi (cute little beans) mine took just at 5 
minutes to reach 350 F and another 7 minutes to reach 425 and the first 
snaps of  2nd crack.  Rested 48 hours, and drip brewed.
WOW.  Definitely not a cute little cup.  Did I mention WOW?  Full, rich 
bittersweet.  A little bit smokey, and just as smooth as can be.  I don't 
know if it was the profile, the bean, or the combination.  BTW, 
WOW!    VERY similar to the "mochas" I purchase out "16oz triple mochas, 
half sweet please".  Now I just have to get the other two Mohkas roasted 
and try them.
Then, blended with Jampit,  then..... then......then......then.....OHHHH so 
many combinations, not enough caffeine tolerance.  I have to sleep at night.

Yes, Wow! That dark, rich flavor and aroma - sandalwood, tobacco,
chocolate.  Now just blend it with some jampit, but don't take the
jampit too dark. Double wow!

Hey -
Sounds cool!  Can you tell me more about the "real" fan blade?  Where did
you get it?  What does it look like?  How is it attached?

It is a 4" hard plastic with 5 CCW blades.  They have the "classic" angle 
that you see on most fans, not the flat 90 degrees that is on the WBI.  It 
is attached the same of the original.  I had to drill out the original 1/4" 
hole for a 5/8" hole and three holes for the screws.  I got it from 
Johnstone Supply.  It doesn't give me a lot more air velocity with the 
heater on, but when the heater is off and the fan is running faster, the 
air velocity is greater than when I had the original blade in (with the 
heat off).  It is a touch louder though, but cools the beans very nicely.
