If I understand correctly you cannot get all of the coffee to empty from the espresso maker. Also, do you make a second batch of coffee, or are you talking about pouring a second cup from the original batch of brewed coffee? I assume you are trying to pour a second cup from the first batch.
First, you need to be aware that when it states 3 cup espresso maker, it is talking about 3 espresso cups, not 3 American size cups. So if you are drinking an American size cup of espresso/coffee, you wouldn't have enough left in the pot to give you a second cup.
Or, you might be talking about the water that remains in the bottom of the espresso maker. This is a stovetop espresso maker that has the water and grounds put in the bottom of the pot. In this type of brewing you heat the water which makes steam forcing the water to filter through the coffee and then into the upper pot. The upper pot holds the brewed coffee which is what you would drink. This process will leave a certain amount of water in the bottom of the pot after brewing.
