Use two part epoxy glue, resin and hardener, mix it with ground coffee to the color you want and let it set up enough to get thick and push it in the holes. Mix it enough to let the coffee dissolve and color the epoxy. That's if the holes are in the heart wood. If it is in the sap wood then just the epoxy should do. I use Mesquite and that's what I use. Good luck.
I forgot to say, take a scrap piece and see what color the wood will be with finish on it. That's the color you want to match unless it is in a very dark piece of the wood and just plain dark is all you want. Experiment with how you can make different colors using light sawdust or food coloring to add to the epoxy. I still stand by the use of two part epoxy resin mix for the filler glue. Give it hours to harden.
If you are waiting for your ship to come in you must ask yourself...when was it that you sent one out?
