Should I buy a food processor or a blender and mandolin?

Hi, this might sound dumb to you all but I am not sure what I should be investing in. I am getting my kitchen together and can only afford one appliance at a time.

I make a lot of dips and sauces like hummus, pesto etc.
I need to grind coffee and roasted whole spice.
I need to slice onions and other veggies in bulk.

I tried making hummus with my boyfriend's blender but it didn't go that well. I used to use my mum's back in the day. May be the blender he uses is not very good. So should I just buy another blender and then buy a mandolin next or buying processor will be a better idea?

TIA
