After primary fermentation has finished. Rack into secondary for dry hopping. Coffee is added at bottling to taste as brewed below: (I start with 5 oz cold brew and work my way up from there)

I drink coffee that's cold brewed so I just add from what I make for the week which I prepare by steeping 1.25 lbs course ground french roasted coffee into 9 cups of water, steeped overnight at room temperature for 14-16 hours.

Note on coffee: I find when using cold brew in amounts less than 5 oz or so, it ages out fairly quickly which is why I use this as my new starting point. I suggests over shooting a bit from your ideal taste to let it settle out just right when carbonated and conditioned. Using less will still end up producing a great beer that's very smooth with decent body, just not much coffee flavor.

Here's a link to my "development" thread.
