My grandmother passed away in her sleep and vomited a lot of coffee ground emesis-- what could have happened?

Bleeding

Sleep
"Coffee Ground Emesis" implies vomited blood that originated in the stomach. This can occur with any bleeding in the upper GI tract; bleeding ulcers and ruptured blood vessels (varices) are among more common causes. While the specific cause is not clear from this history, ultimately the bleeding was probably the issue

My son is vomiting uncontrollably and is vomiting what looks like brown coffee grounds what causes that?

Blood in stomach

Blood mixes with acid in the stomach and looks like coffee-grounds. The blood could be from an ulcer in the stomach, or could come from a broken blood vessel or capillary in the esophagus.

Why I feel like vomiting after drinking a hazelnut coffee? I had diarhoea right after BTW I'm on diet & consume 2 meals per day as I wake up at lunch

If it only happens..

Diet
...when you drink hazelnut coffee, and you are otherwise well, then don't drink hazelnut coffee! It could also be lactose intolerance if you are putting milk in the coffee. In any case, avoid it for a day or two and see if your symptoms go away. If they do, you have your answer and you need to not drink hazelnut coffee.

I have had diahrrea for 11 days now that either looks like bial or coffee grounds along with severe vomiting and abdominal cramping light headed ness ?

Need to see doc now.

Vomiting
Persistent vomiting and diarrhea that looks like coffee grounds, abdominal pain and lightheadedness needs to be seen by a doc sooner rather than later. Concern for bleeding from your GI tract and dehydration or serious blood loss. Do not take ibuprofen, aspirin or naprosyn in the interim.

Go to the ER

High_blood_pressure
This is a medical emergency. You should take her to the ER and also give a call to the Physician, who is treating her. It seems that your wife is having hemoptysis, which is not coffee ground or black tarry. Hemoptysis is usually bright red in color, like regular blood and is vomitted. Coffee ground or black tarry blood seen, mixed with stools is usually seen with Upper GI bleeding.

Vomiting after drinking coffee what's wrong?

Coffee intolerance

Vomiting
It's not uncommon to develop an intolerance to caffeine. Both the heat and the coffee itself can irritate your stomach. Many people have to switch to decaf or no caffeine at all. As long as you're not having pain you should be okay. If you're used to a large coffee intake, expect a headache from withdrawal, although not necessarily.
