Coffee Wankers: Assemble - Advice Thread

Had a night of tapas and cocktails on Saturday and had to buy some coffee beans for the martinis. So I now have a bag of beans and thinking about buying a coffee grinder rather than continuing to use ready ground cafetiere-type stuff.

Pros? Cons? Thoughts? Suggestions?

I grind my own beans. It’s fine.

You could use them to fill maracas and then have a Mexican themed party. The next morning you would then have ground beans for your coffee as well as having bean able to create sweet music.
