Apparently, I didn't get the mokka story right either, as it sounds like the Maui mokka is its own thing. More info here written by the guy who's one of the major influences on coffee in Hawaii: he helped develop Ka'u coffee into what it is today, and is also the roaster/consultant for Rusty's, among other places: http://blog.coffeereview.com/green-coffee-origins-and-issues/demystifying-mokka/ They're really cute little round beans, smaller than almost anything else I've...
The hipsters have jumped the shark when Starbucks actually has more interesting coffee than they do. Maui is the only place other than Yemen that grows the mokka varietal at anything approaching commercial scale. Rusty's Hawaiian tends to have it year round in peaberry form, but it's sold out right now. They sell a very high quality, but very $$$ version.
They're known as the “lobster claw” wheels, FWIW.

Yup, just checked my records from a few years ago where the dealer wanted about $75, but some models can be more expensive for totally random reasons. Give Pure Motorsport a call, and see what they can do for you --- they've been pretty good about prices in the past for me. http://www.purems.com
That's nothing. Price out the OEM Brembo rotors on the Nissan 350Z if you want your eyes to pop out. Or VANOS units for E39 M5s. But that's the thing lots of people who want high performance cars just for the look don't understand: the higher a car's performance, the more expensive the maintenance. E46 OEM rotors for the regular non-M cars were about $39/rotor. I could do a full brake job on all 4 wheels for about $200 in parts, all OEM.
It's going to be pretty tough, if my experience from 4 years ago is any indication. Scabal used to have a very limited selection, and that's what most English tailors will use. Teh RJmanbearpig has told me that Chipp/Paul Winston has his own very slubby tussah woven up, and sells lengths of it. Loro Piana might also have something, as might Byrne and Burge.
Downtown LA right before landing at LAX on Saturday. I used an iPhone 4, and I wish I could have used the Ricoh GR instead, but there wasn't time to dig it out of my bag before the scene had passed by.
I've seen stuff from bigger roasters have variation like that too, especially lighter roasts. The coffee was still delicious. I had an amazing Kenya-process orange Caturra that's grown in the Ka'u region of Hawaii by Rusty's today. It was so well balanced: with just enough acid to make that round mouthfeel and the rest of it filled with a velvety chocolate flavor. I hope they still have some left tomorrow! Fueco, I hope you'll enjoy that Sulawesi from the Toarco farm. I...
The only BB coffee I really liked recently was their Ninety Plus Ethiopian Nekisse, and it is really fantastic --- heads and shoulders above almost anything else I've tasted from any other roaster. Unfortunately, it's expensive as heck and comes in a pretentious tin can. They make nice mochas too.
