You do need to learn how to properly brew coffee to get good coffee out of it. There are lots of videos online, and at Intelligentsiacoffee.com. First off, start with whole beans, and grind them to the proper fineness/coarseness (this takes some trial and error until you get it right for your tastes). In general, the grind should be medium to medium-fine.
Edit: For those that prefer a slower extraction - you can always grind the beans more finely - that will slow the extraction, as finer grounds "clog" the filter. But, as always, any adjustment to temperature, speed, grind will result in a different flavor.
1.Rinse your filter to remove paper residues, and put the grounds into the filter/dripper.
2. Once the water is boiling remove it from heat and swirl/stir it to get the heat even.

I've found that the Hario V60 is an excellent alternative to a French press.
First, the V60 has an elegant design, and a very sound construction. It is clearly well made. If you are interested in this type of product, it may be helpful to know that Hario sells a plastic version of this drip cone for about $9.00. So you should be asking yourself, why would I want to pay the extra money to upgrade to a ceramic model? For me, I don't like the idea of hot plastic being anywhere near my coffee (or food for that matter). The second benefit of the ceramic model is that it retains heat MUCH better than plastic. With the pour-over method of coffee brewing, you need to plan ahead and pre-heat your drip cone, carafe and coffee cup or you will end up with a luke-warm cup of coffee. The ceramic makes this much easier.
This product is not for everyone. If you prefer a Mr. Coffee that you can program to make your coffee for you, by all means skip the Hario. But, if you really care about the details of how your coffee is made, and you like being able to orchestrate the process yourself, the V60 is an excellent choice. I have a Bodum Brazil French press, which is equally well made. But I prefer the Hario. The French press extracts more caffeine from coffee than the manual drip method, it leaves sediment behind in the coffee, and studies have shown that French press style coffee may raise levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) in the blood. I don't take the cholesterol claims all that seriously, but I do find them interesting. Coffee people are very passionate about their preferred brew methods, and I appreciate the people in the French press camp. For me, the V60 is an excellent way to brew coffee in the exact amount I want to drink.Read more ›
If like me you are a super serious enthusiast with a large collection of coffee equipment this makes a great addition.
What this is not, however, is a no-brainer coffee brewer.
There is a short but steep learning curve to achieving the potential of this product. There are hundreds of youtube videos which can instruct you on the various techniques, so you won't be without hints & tips. However you will want to probably buy a new water kettle as using this correctly requires very good water/pouring control; of course Hario sells an excellent one.
The key elements of the coffee product, once you've mastered the technique, are clarity (as it uses a paper filter) and excellent control of the extraction so you can play with the coffee in an effort to achieve what you believe to be the "ultimate" product from it.
This is not a quick & easy method. It takes several minutes of actual concentration and effort to produce just a few cups of coffee. By contrast espresso takes only one minute, a press pot takes several minutes but only 30 seconds of activity, a coffee machine obviously requires almost no effort. It is quicker than a vacuum/siphon pot but only marginally so.
It also requires very good coffee beans. With mediocre coffee it can magnify the negatives. Counter Culture, Intelligentsia, or even Peet's (fresh roasted, not from the super market) are all good options. However in my experience not all quality coffee beans are a good match for this method.Read more ›
