Actually, I think you're making the assumption that people who have spent more time with different methods are just snobs and not approaching coffee scientifically. Yes I'm sure that people would get offended by my comparison but for a lot of people (myself for the longest time) that was our basis for comparison. It completely blew my mind the first time someone exposed me to something other than that method. I honestly thought coffee was just the same.
BTW, I never said I had a preferred method or if there was a "right way". The only methodology I cited was that I couldn't extract the tasting notes I get from pour-over out of French Press.
There are a ton of methods that aren't pour-over that I didn't list and I'm sure many others I haven't tried. I actually do want to approach this scientifically and not just emotionally. I've often thought siphon was one of the best methods for clean extraction, but I don't own a brewer and I don't think I have the time to use it. So between, aeropress, french press, american press, v60, kalita wave, chemex, traditional drip, siphon, cold brew (and all the forms of cold brew), moka, and more many more methods, where does French Press stack rank? I'm not saying anyone is wrong or right, and preference is preference but that's an intellectual curiosity not a coffee snobism. Go read /r/coffee where they actively debate v60 vs Kalita where I personally thing there's not much difference, others are saying it's a complete departure.
I've tried through an orange in an aeropress and cold brew with coconut water. I'm not some purist who thinks there's only one right way. But you can't contextualize the comparison if there is only one data point presented in the comment.
I apologize for offending you as this was not my intent, I was genuinely curious what the breadth of comparison you were coming from was.
