Ok. My plan was actually to let it sit with the additions for 2 weeks in primary. Would that extra week be no good?

For my Porters, I add vanilla beans (at the end of fermentation) to my primary all the time. I have also added Oak, Cocoa Nibs & Dry Hops to the primary as well. As @ThickHead said, keeping them in there for 1-2 weeks on the yeast cake is fine. Although I dont keep my beer on most of these flavorings very long for fear of overdoing it, most of them get about <1 week in the primary before I am transferring to a serving keg.
Although I accidentally oaked the crap outta my last porter with 2oz of chips at 7days. Perhaps this is the beauty of doing a Liqour infused mixture, (small dosing) although I personally never liked the taste of bourbon flavored beers.

Don't soak the coffee grinds in alcohol. Boil a mason jar and lid for about 15 minutes or so and cap and let cool down (I just put in fridge for a few hours or over night). I run my grinder through the dishwasher and then just grind the grounds and put them in the sanitized jar with te sanitized water. I then leave jar on counter for a day. Then filter with a coffee filter. Soak the coffee filter in sanitizer for a few minutes first. This method allows for a smooth coffee taste and you won't have off flavored caused by the vodka, whiskey, etc..

I've done 4 coffee stouts in the past year and a half. All were cold pressed and added to the bottling bucket at bottling time. Add mix a little and taste till you get the taste you want. No need to sanitize the coffee for some reason it just seems to work just fine.

Ok thanks everyone. I'm confident in adding to the primary now.
