I mostly use either a small mortar and pestle (small amounts) or a cheap blade-style coffee grinder - ideally, get one with a removable metal bowl, which makes it way easier to clean.
American coffee semi-pro here. Buy whole beans and grind them just before you use them, and let the coffee sit in the hot water for five minutes before filtering. If you don't have a coffee grinder, this one works well and is pretty cheap. I prefer to separate the coffee from the used beans with a french press, but cone drip is fine as long as you let it sit before you filter it.
That was the only important bit. Milk, sugar, cream, creamer, anything is fine. Do what makes it taste good to you. I use a bit less than a teaspoon of sugar and a tablespoon or two of 2% milk for a mug of coffee. A little cream and a little sugar can make coffee much richer and fuller tasting. Anyone who accuses you of doing it wrong is doing it wrong.
What do you think of this grinder friend?

That may be true but I'd start disregarding amazon reviews for the most part. Some good grinders score lower than they should and many MANY crappy grinders score better than they should
For instance [link]
This grinder is a not good at all. Incredibly inconsistent and terrible, I'd have my coffee preground before I bought this grinder. 4.5 stars from over 1000 people
This grinder on the other hand :[link]
This is the best entry level grinder for less than 200 usd, only 4 stars. Just ignore those reviews
