comment Does brewing tea for longer result in higher caffeine content?
Your answer seems to misrepresent the article you're citing; that article says that theobromine content is small or negligible.

comment Coffee brewing methods - scientific analysis?
Interesting article. I think the science is mostly referred to in Sebiddychef's links (the SCAE gold chart), but the measurement method is definitely worth a +1.

comment Coffee brewing methods - scientific analysis?
Thanks Sebiddy. Those are both very useful documents. The SCAE gold has a lot of interesting claims that I'd love to see backed up. "All about coffee" looks like a great book; I have some reading ahead.

Also, note that I'm not asking for users to come up with their own experiments - I'm asking for references to published (academic?) literature.

comment Coffee brewing methods - scientific analysis?
Alright, remove espresso from that list; espresso depends on pressure and temperature of the water being pressed through, while the other methods cannot depend on pressure. If you still think it's too broad, help me refine it further.

comment Coffee brewing methods - scientific analysis?
The title of the first article I see on that link is "Levels of the cholesterol-elevating diterpenes cafestol and kahweol in various coffee brews". It seems to be looking at the medical effects of coffee, which is unfortunately most (all?) of what google scholar turned up for the terms I tried. It tells nothing of the flavor chemicals or comparison of the extraction process.

comment Can cold-brew coffee be heated? Why?
Can you clarify 'stale' at all? What happens to the oils? Is it exposure to air or just mixing with water that makes it go stale?
