This company ships here (might even be free or around $5.00 - not 100% sure but I know it is really reasonable) and they arrive about 5-7 days after ordering ...

We have a great local source in Virgin Islands Coffee Roasters. When I switched to whole-bean coffees I gave them a try and eventually met the owners and toured their roastery. They have a wonderful variety of coffees, including some unique relationships with individual sources. I am enjoying their Nicaraguan FTO and their Honduran organic at the moment. They are a first class operation and I recommend their coffee highly. I know their beans are available on St. Croix at Quality Foods and Cost-U-Less, among other places.

I have had a relationship with a coffee roasting company since they were sailing clients many years ago and feel completely spoiled by the quality, variety, prices and service.
I would suggest you bring a few months of beans with you. try out some of the local suppliers and depending on your satisfaction level maybe check out some suppliers like the one I use.

Virgin island coffee roasters has great beans - I've only seen a sign at the surf place in Fsted. I'm sure they have the bags for sale here somewhere.

Yes, Twin City does sell beans by the pound. But sometimes they can't if they find their stock too low, which would prevent them from having brewed coffee at the restaurant. I've found that to be the case only a handful of times, however. I love their Caribbean Blend.

I like coffee that tastes like coffee and only coffee--not some artificially flavored coffee brew. If you buy a DYI small grinder, you avoid the risk of perfectly good unadulterated roasted beans, grinded at point of sale, from being contaminated by the grinder with an odorous melange of unwanted flavors and smells. Those chemicals adhere to the grinding elements and contaminate whatever beans follow in their wake.
