You can grow them at home and not even need a greenhouse. I managed to get a few Meyer Lemons off a tree (started out about a 5" cutting) before it got infested with whitefly from some cheap gardenia I picked up somewhere. Had to pitch the lemon AND a couple other plants.
If you don't have a tropical plant nursery you can order from Logee's
in Connecticut. If nothing else, their site is neat for killing time.
Our BIL loves coffee more than anyone I know! As a joke housewarming gift I bought him a small (less than 1') coffee tree. Good thing they have a 2-story entry hall - in about 6 years that thing has grown to about 8 feet! He gets beans off of it, but never more than a dozen at a time.
