I'm relatively new to the French press (been at it a couple of months now), and I've found that once in a while I manage to get a fantastic cup of coffee, once in a while it's just bad, and the rest of the time it's just "OK". I'm using a burr grinder, Starbucks coffee, and I'm measuring the ground coffee and the brew time, but am I missing something that's causing the inconsistency? Any tricks out there to improve the process and get a great pot every time?
