I have not had much success using a VST single basket so now when I'm on my own I brew and double spout pour two cups using a vst 21gm basket. Depending on how many cups I've had that day I might throw the extra brew away. My question is whether there is any detriment to re-heating the extra brew some hours later?

It'll have oxidised slightly in the first hour or so. After that I can taste significant staleness in espresso.


I use shots that have sat for anywhere up to 15 minutes at the shop. Very, very few hang around that long though.

But seriously - I do that sometimes with leftovers, add some suger and or syrup, and can almost always find a willing victim for it. Very similar to the stuff you can buy at the supermarket.

You could make a latte out of it right away and put that in the fridge...




In the fridge area and available in shops near you :D.

OP, I've been making an espresso in the evening into a small liquid tight pot (50ml), letting it cool slightly then lid on and in the fridge. I take it to work the next day decant into a mug and add hot water to it. Whilst it doesn't taste as good as a freshly made espresso, surprisingly it's not that far off, and more importantly, it's way better than the cr4p dispensed from the bean to cup machine at work. Give it a go, nothing to lose, especially if you're sometimes binning it.
