Q. If someone left his office and forgot making a bore nefashot after eating some fruits, but when he arrived home and was about to have a coffee, he remembered. Since there was a shinui makom or a change of venue, he needs to make a new bracha of shehakol. But what about the neglected bore nefashot – should he recite it before he drinks or wait and make one bracha acharona for both the fruits and now the coffee?

A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that based on Rema (O.H. 178: 2) he does not have to recite first borei nefoshos on the fruits he ate at the office. Rather, he should proceed to recite a shehakol on the coffee he is about to drink at home, due to the shinui mokom involved. Then after finishing the coffee, if it was consumed at the proper time frame, he should recite borei nefoshos on both the items eaten at the office and at home.
