The time I've most frequently seen is it is best to brew coffee within
ten minutes of grinding. But, naturally, that is not always practical
and you do the best you can. Like I knew it would be too much work to
get a grinder to work (I didn't have a spare and didn't feel one dose of
coffee was worth buying one for the office) so I grinded it that
morning. Turns out they didn't use it until the next day but they were
blown away by the flavor. So, yep, even pre-ground sitting in a ziplock
bag for 24 hours still beats anything out on the shelf, or even at the
coffee shop in most cases, hands down. But, for the fullest flavor, the
ten minute is a good rule, and probably is shorter for espresso.
