Have anyone here ordered either roasted or green beans from Sea Island Coffee?

They offer some very exotic coffees that I can't find anywhere else. The price is outrageously high. And the store being in the UK, the shipping cost will likely be very high to me in the US. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it before, and want to ask what you ordered and how it was. I could not find any thread about the store in the HB.

Feel free to label me as elitist, but a purveyor that advertises wild toucan coffee (including by varietal), kopi lewak coffee, and Nespresso capsules has three strikes against them.

Which producers were tempting you? Perhaps members here know of other sources.

Yeah, there are some red signals flushing for me too. But, they seem to be the only place selling Japanese-grown coffee from Okinawa.

At $235 for 125g of roasted coffee, it is the most expensive offering they have. They are out of stock for the greens. There are a few other origins that interest me, like St Helena, California, Fiji, Nepal, and the Canary Islands. I have never had or heard of those coffee origins.
