If they are burnt as in black there really is nothing you can do but throw them away. Or compost them.

Coffee can be medium roasted, dark or burned roasted. When medium roasted, it can have satisfying flavors. And when dark roasted, they lose much of their subtle flavor but can attain a deep richness as an espresso. But when the coffee beans are burned, the refined flavor is destroyed. It tastes bitter and unpleasant.
If you've burned the beans, then it is now wasted. But in some commercial coffee shops, they still utilized burned beans and even sell the whole coffee beans.
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine. www.coffeeloversmag.com/theMagazine
