Many folks here recommend an upgrade to a burr grinder. This is very solid advice because even though you can goose a bit more out of a blade grinder with some extra effort, there’s no way to get the best quality without a burr grinder. And this is not just coffee snob stuff; a controllable and even grind can make a drastic difference in your results.

A lot of folks here often suggest the Aeropress. I have one and I love it, but the coffee it produces, typically a concentrated brew that needs dilution to drink at normal strength, will be pretty different from what you’re used to. For a newbie, I think a great step toward coffee nirvana is a hybrid pourover like the Clever Dripper or the Bonavita Immersion Dripper. These are both very easy to use and produce a clean cup of typically-extracted coffee.
