Yeah, that guy was really nice too. He makes those mills himself, IIRC. I didn't get any pepper from him yet because I haven't run out of the Tellicherry I already have yet.
wow they have some beautiful mills. 180 for buckeye mills kinda tempting.
Ya, those are top of the line peppercorns/mills. I still got about a pound left of tellicherry and sarawak, so it'll last me for quite a while.
Been using mine alot, and it takes 6oz pepper at a time, which is very nice.
I use tellicherry from Penzeys. I go through a lot.
I have used both the tellicherry from Penzeys and the one from pepper-passion (and the Costco as well...)
I'd say in declining order of quality:
But i'm not sure the difference between Pepper-passion and Penzeys valids ordering just for that. I got Pepper-passions sample box and it is great trying to mix and test all those fun peppers that are not available elsewhere.
+1 on the PP variety pack. Big fun, pepper wise!

Gotta try that but then I need another mill first... As a European I actualy use more white than black pepper. Seems to be more common over there than here. A variety pack sounds like a great idea, but I have to go through the rest of my Penzey's bag first...
