  1. First off, we should acknowledge that coffee brewing methods are a matter of taste and that not everyone will agree with the presupposition of this question.
    That being said, it is common for people accustomed to automatic drip coffee to taste french press coffee and be impressed. I think the reason for this is that most auto-drip brewers use too little coffee per water and often don’t achieve high enough temperatures. These shortcoming can be address in french press (though they, and others, can also be replicated).
    Hand-pour-over brewers (such as the Hario V60) are very popular these days, and can be included under the large umbrella of “drip” methods. Many fancy coffee folks prefer pour-overs to full immersion brews like those produced by the french press.
    French press coffee tends to have more body than drip (a matter of taste), but it also can have some negative features such as fines (small particles left in the coffee) and a muting of the “high notes” (acidity) prized by coffee folks.

  2. Frankly, French Press produces the worst coffee n my experience! The fines are indeed part of the problem, but the biggest problem is excess acidity.
