Hard to tell from the pics, first thought is that it looks like the leftovers of a good fermentation/karusen. If it ends up with a still white film across the surface it may be infected, but for now...

Well the one time I used coffee it was with regular drip brew and that went unboiled. Just used it as part of the top water in an extract batch. Using espresso I'd be even less concerned since it's...

The food as it is was the 'energizer' and 'nutrient' from LD Carlson, I don't recall the exact amount (it's noted downstairs) but scaled it from a 1gallon recipe. The yeast was added about 20 hours...
