I have some Jablum coffee beans but I don't have a grinder. I went to Starbucks today and they said that they can't grind coffee beans for customer.. Should I go to a personal cafe? Where can I go for it.... I need your suggestions.. ><

Honestly, I know of no place that would grind beans that you didn't buy there.  But, what better excuse to buy a grinder for home!

Well...you grind based on your method of making coffee.  No one else with a grinder is going to know how to grind based on your equipment, be it pourover, press or espresso machine.

No mater what the method, most of us on this web site grind a limited amount at first and then adjust the grind size for the strength of extraction that opens the best flavor profile of the roast.  In addition, all geeks will grind their coffee only minutes before preparing it and they can taste the difference; everyone may taste the difference.  The grinder is a tool and not just a step in the process to be checklisted.
Agreeing with SimonPatrice, there are many reasons to have a quality grinder and you could likely find a quality hand grinder for sale in an artisanal coffee cafe in Montreal for the price of 2-3 bags of premium coffee even today before your beans begin to stale.  Grind freshly and extract all of the flavor profile inherent in your Jablum; grind carelessly and you might as well be drinking Folgers.

... because ground coffee goes stale after 15 minutes.
