A thought (I have them every now and then) what about using a food-grad poly
barrels set up on rollers? You could toss the coffee in, rotate the barrel a
few time, and dump out. Maybe even put some mixing blades in that when
reversed would push the coffee out (like a cement mixer). There are some
engineering problems to address, but nothing too big I think.
There's a guy in Portland who sells the barrels for rainwater collection if
you want contact info I have it at the office somewhere. We've used the
barrels to move live fish around in the backs of pickup trucks.

Go to your local home stuff store and look for the 'Odd Job' Cement 
mixer - it's a plastic barrel about 2' high - about the size of a 5 
gallon bucket.  When I bought mine it was about $30 but that was around 1992.
For it's intended use it claims that you pour in a bag of cement and 
use the dent in the lid to measure the water, dump that in and roll 
it around for 30 seconds.
Tried it, opened it to verify that the concrete was in no way ready 
to go.  It was ready to go.  Darn thing actually works.
I'm betting it would do a tremendous job of mixing a blend of beans.
