Where to buy coffee beans in St. Maarten/St. Thomas?

We got some delicious roasted coffee beans in the Bahamas last year, and are looking to do the same on our Eastern cruise. Anyone know where we might find some?

Can you, or are you allowed to bring in this item through customs? Is a Food Item.

I usually avoid the gift shop coffees and grab a taxi to a grocery store; I do the same for spices.

Yes you can.

Yes, as long as they're not from Cuba and are already roasted (I guess the roasting process will kill any harmful bacteria).

ETA: I guess you can bring coffee that's not roasted as long as the pulp? isn't attached. We always just buy roasted so there's no question
