suono dei chicchi pestati nel mortaio
Explanation:
Ho trovato la citazione che fa al caso tuo:

He pours the coffee beans onto a mahmasa, a shallow, long-handled iron pan that he holds just above the flames. He stirs the roasting beans from time to time with a yad al mahmasa, which is attached by a chain to the small pan. When the beans are cooked they are left to cool before being pulverized with a pestle in a mortar called mahbash. When pounding the beans it is necessary to strike the side of the mortar occasionally with the pestle to free the grounds from sticking together. This noise is considered music and the guests should listen carefully and show appreciation of the host's artistic expression.

pestare i chicchi di caffè


Explanation:
Secondo me si riferisce a questo.
Vedi, ad esempio:
"anche la macinatura è passata dall'usanza di pestare chicchi in un mortaio, al macinino di tipo analogo a quello usato per triturare le spezie ai macinacaffè turchi, ai modelli in ferro francesi fino ai moderni macini elettrici."
