I believe that part of is is also that the aromas released in grinding are only going to be the very most volatile compounds that will vaporize at room temps. It will only be there for a few minutes. You toss boiling water over the ground coffee, and suddenly, the temperature of the beans goes into the 200 degree range, and EVERYTHING is forced out, dissolved, vaporized, and carried out with the steam. What you get from the fresh ground beans is only a tiny fraction of the entire spectrum of chemicals.

Think about all of the other volatile chemicals that are burned off and vaporized at the high temps of roasting. You'd never get the smell of the final cup out of the blast of crap that comes boiling out of a roaster, would you?
