I have two comments on this article:
- It should be part of an article about brewing coffee (for example), section methods of brewing.
- The second reference is broken because the site was 'upgraded' without 'rerouting' to new page location.
While agreeing with the previous, I have a further two comments:
- In the 3rd sentence of the first paragraph, "Beans should be ground coarse..." is not grammatical English. An option is "Beans should be coarsely ground", for example
- Similar information is repeated in the first sentence of the second paragraph.
Although some equipment mentioned in the article is US-made, I think that the subject as a whole is international and therefore main units should be SI according to MOS:UNITS. I can think of two ways to convert the units:
- Blindly convert amounts of coffee and water: 230 g (8 oz) coffee per 1.7 l (56 fl oz) water
- Convert the ratio: XXX g coffee per 1 l water (8 oz per 56 fl oz).
I puzzled over this sentence also. I think it must be a case of poor writing, and that what it means to say is that the Dutch brought coffee itself to Japan first in 1609, and then the Japanese invented cold brewing. Of course we need a citation for that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:51, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
More or less caffeine?
The article says (without quoting a source) that "there are also high levels of caffeine in a cup of cold brewed coffee compared to hot brewed coffee" whereas the External Links section links to this article which says "what's apparent... is that cold concentrate contains far less acid and a good bit less caffeine." Which is true? I'm inclines to believe the external article, which at least has some numerical data. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:49, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
