I've experimented with grinding a dose 20 mins ahead of pulling it with one/ two days post roast which makes it 'act' like a better rested coffee, my guess is even ground immediately post roast then stuck in a mason jar it'll be good to go by the time your buddy needs it, I'm curious to know the answer in real life though!
Really though, friends don't let friends use pre ground coffee

Most offgas for 24 -48 hrs before consuming. I will drink immediately in a pinch, but coffee is better in a day or so.
