I've been using cloth filters in my Hario vac pots for over two years now & 
have never had problems with them affecting the flavor of my coffees. Simply 
rinsing them isn't going to remove the coffee oils so if thats all you do 
then I could see why you'd have problems. I soak my filters in a hot 
Oxyclean Free solution, rinse well, let dry & have no problems with taste or
