Mmm...  Re-reading, I see what you mean.  Perhaps "slam" on the brakes would 
have been better.  There was quite a discussion in weeks past about Jimma. 
I had some troubles with 1st roaring right into 2nd.  The list wisdom 
indicated that it was good to get the beans up to temp and then really pull 
back on the heat to keep from zooming through to 2nd.  In other words, hit 
the brakes.
