I noticed one person talked about the period between grinding and 
brewing, and went back and read her post, and it did seem she was asking 
about the time between roasting and brewing/grinding. But, that said...
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.

Nope--IIRC, the original poster was asking whether he or she'd notice  
a difference in coffee ground the night before brewing.

Here's what she wrote:
<>
The difference is roast and grind shortly before brewing, that is, grind 
and brew right after the roast, and roasting *in the evening* and then 
*grind/brew* in the *morning*.
If she meant the time between grinding and brewing...that's not what she 
said. She never indicated a separation between those two.
Either way, she got more answers than she expected, I'm sure. ;)
