I have used tobacco tea as a deterrent. I have read good things about ground coffee in the soil.

This looks pretty bad to be honest. My deepest condolences :frown:

These obviously have and will multiply like a bitch! You should definitely be pulling them all off with packing tape or another tape that wont harm the leaves and just killing as many as you can find by hand.

Those look like aphids. Get some ladybugs.

They're aphids and the beginning of Spring is the worst since their natural predators lag behind a bit.

Strong blasts of water a couple of times a day, neem/neem-derivatives, or pyrethrin [caution!] are all effective. If you want to go the biological route ladybugs will take care of the situation very quickly especially if you build a little net over the plant to contain them.

Edit: Ieponumos beat me while I got distracted replying. :super:

Those aphids are feeling good... the other posters beat me to it but make sure if you have any other plants that you separate them immediately because aphids spread fast. Good luck!

I would definitely try pyrethrin. will definitely kill any that it sprays onto.

There's a guide to defeating pests in my journal. I have gotten rid of aphid infestations like that on other plants. 

Three tips I can give you up front:
1. Isolate the plant. A humidity tent is a good way to do it. Beware that mature aphids fly.
2. Cut back non-essential growth. This will contain your battleground to a smaller area.
3. Wash the plant daily.  I use a combo of a faucet or hose rinse and a bath of insecticidal soap. Instead of trying to spray the affected areas. The dip is more effective.  It will also eliminate all or most mature bugs so they don't get to the flying stage.
