Default Adding coffee to beer?

I have an extract porter kit that I would like to add coffee to. Does anyone have any advice on how to do this? For example:

What do you do with the beans - grind them, slightly crush them or leave them whole?

When do you add the beans - steep them with the grains or put them in with boil or in the secondary?

How much would you use for a 5 gallon batch?

Any help is appreciated.

I hate to be "that guy" but there is a WEALTH of information on this exact topic if you do some searching here on this site. Just search for "coffee beer" or "coffee porter" or anything like that.

A little legwork will be very rewarding for you. Cheers!
