Subject: Espresso's in Thermos?
 

At my job there is a coffee maker with a hot water spout.

Could I make some espresso's at the house, place them in a thermos, and make americanos at work? Or would the espresso go bad in the thermos?  If not, what about just making the Americano at home and placing it in a thermos....would it stay better like that?

My understanding is you lose the mouth feel and some subtle tastes as the espresso cools and after a while it just tastes like really strong regular coffee.  I would guess you could do well to make americanos at work with hot water and thermos full of espresso.  It will not really be espresso any more but it should be better than most work coffee.

I make really strong cold brewed coffee for work and do something very much like what you are doing, just with milk and not water.  I carry it in a stainless steel water bottle.  I tried doing espresso in the morning but it takes away the fun if I am rushing in the morning.  It seems like a chore then and a luxury on the weekends/nights.
